Dental Exams & Teeth Cleanings

A dental exam will be performed by Dr. Jahangiri at your first dental visit. At regular check-ups, your dentist and hygienist will include the following procedures:

Dental Exams

  • Examination of dental x-rays: Used for detection of tooth decay, cancerous tumors, and bone loss. X-rays also help Dr. Jahangiri determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the patient for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the patient for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Tooth decay evaluation: Check every tooth surface for decay.
  • Examination of preexisting restorations: Check fillings, crowns, etc.

Teeth Cleanings

Your teeth cleaning will include the following:

  • Removal of calculus: Calculus is plaque that has been left on the tooth and is now firmly attached. Calculus forms both above and below the gum line.
  • Plaque removal: Plaque is a sticky film that forms on the teeth. It’s a collection of living bacteria and saliva.
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stains not already removed during the brushing and scaling procedures.
