The process of cleaning your teeth consists of more than just making them look good and giving your entire mouth a fresh sparkly feeling. Those results though pleasant, are only the perks. The diagnostic part of the procedure can lead to important determinations and assess the need for preventive measures.
Your scheduled cleaning will most likely be done by a hygienist who is highly qualified and experienced. Before she begins your hygienist will update your medical records by asking about any new medications that may have been prescribed for you since your last visit. She will also inquire as to any changes in your overall physical condition. If you are due for x-rays they will be taken at this time.
Thanks to the advanced technology of digital radiography your x-ray results will be ready to evaluate on the spot. You can view them along with your dentist via computer image as he points out any areas of concern that may need attention.
If you’ve established a routine for practicing good oral health habits at home, well done! Keep up the good work, but don’t forget to follow up with regular professional checkups and cleanings. Your hygienist may have information about new ways to improve home care for yourself and your family members.
