Our Dental Exam Process

A comprehensive dental exam is essential to detecting and treating any potential dental problems. At Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics, our dental exams include a thorough evaluation of your oral health, which consists of:

Examination of Diagnostic X-Rays

Diagnostic X-rays are critical in detecting decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can occur in any part of the mouth, including the tongue, gums, cheeks, and lips. Early detection of oral cancer is crucial for successful treatment. During your dental exam, we will check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Gum Disease Evaluation

Gum disease is an infection that can damage the gums and bones that hold teeth in place. During your dental exam, we will evaluate the gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

Examination of Tooth Decay

We will thoroughly examine all tooth surfaces for decay with special dental instruments. Early detection of tooth decay is critical to preventing further damage to the tooth and surrounding structures.

Examination of Existing Restorations

We will check your current fillings, crowns, bridges, and other dental restorations to ensure they are in good condition.

Our Professional Dental Cleaning Process

Professional dental cleanings, also known as dental prophylaxis, are performed by our registered dental hygienists. The cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

Removal of Calculus (Tartar)

Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.

Removal of Plaque

Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!

Teeth Polishing

We will remove any stains and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling. Teeth polishing leaves your teeth feeling clean and smooth.
