Comprehensive Dental Exams and Cleanings at Manteca Smiles

Comprehensive Dental Exam:

  1. Diagnostic X-rays: Important for detecting various dental issues such as decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.
  2. Oral Cancer Screening: A thorough examination of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums to identify any signs of oral cancer.
  3. Gum Disease Evaluation: Checking for signs of periodontal disease by examining the gums and bone around the teeth.
  4. Tooth Decay Examination: Comprehensive inspection of all tooth surfaces using special dental instruments.
  5. Evaluation of Existing Restorations: Checking the status of current fillings, crowns, and other dental restorations.


Professional Dental Cleaning (Dental Prophylaxis):

  1. Removal of Calculus (Tartar): Removal of hardened plaque that has firmly attached to the tooth surface above and below the gum line using special dental instruments.
  2. Removal of Plaque: Eliminating the sticky film of bacteria, food debris, and saliva that can lead to gum inflammation and periodontal disease.
  3. Teeth Polishing: Removing stains and plaque that may not be eliminated during regular tooth brushing and scaling.

This information serves as a reminder for individuals to schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to ensure the ongoing health of their teeth and gums. Preventive care is crucial in maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile.
