Dental Checkups and Cleaning in Naperville
Preventive dentistry is essential to taking the best possible care of your teeth, and regular check-ups and cleanings are the most important aspect of that care. We provide regular dental check-ups for Naperville families and we would be happy to start taking care of your routine dental care as well.
The Importance of Regular Checkups
We recommend that most patients come in for a regular check-up and cleaning every six months. This allows our team to identify the signs of any number of potential issues before they can progress.
During your check-up, we’ll address any concerns you may have and evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums to spot signs of decay, disease, and other problems. By discovering these issues and taking action quickly, you can receive the best results from any dental treatment.
In almost every case, dental exams and cleanings are carried out during the same visit. Professional dental cleanings remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup, as our dental hygienists use specialized instruments to address areas that household brushing and flossing can’t reach, helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
While regular brushing and flossing are essential, our regular dental cleanings remove plaque buildup that is otherwise inaccessible. Plaque causes significant damage to teeth and gums over time.
Oral Cancer Screening
As part of our approach to comprehensive dental care, our team carries out oral cancer screenings. Oral cancer is an incredibly serious disease that, like other cancers, is most receptive to treatment when discovered early. As such, we incorporate oral cancer screening into our regular check-ups and cleanings.
Our team is trained to identify the early signs of oral cancer during check-ups. These include red or white discoloration inside the mouth, sores, lesions, and any abnormal lumps within mouth tissue.
Digital X-Rays & Intraoral Camera
We incorporate the latest, state-of-the-art technology into our check-ups to provide our patients with superior dental care. This includes the use of the latest digital X-ray equipment and methods. Dental X-rays are required to detect and examine many oral health issues and are recommended periodically for preventive care. Digital X-rays produce high quality images while using minimal radiation, so we can accurately identify and diagnose any dental issues.
We also have the ability to take full-mouth digital scans with our iTero intraoral digital camera, or scanner, for crowns, implant crowns, retainers, mouth guards, night guards and Invisalign. This eliminates the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions for our patients and allows us to immediately transfer the digital scans to the dental lab for the fabrication of the crowns, dentures and appliances. We love being able to take care of our patients’ needs in a comfortable, efficient, and time-saving manner.
