Drs. Skowron & Salari
Maintain a Beautiful Smile
Brushing your teeth and flossing every day is a great way to keep your smile healthy, but it’s also essential that you schedule check-ups with one of our dentists at least twice a year.
These appointments give Dr. Skowron and Dr. Salari an opportunity to thoroughly evaluate the state of your oral health. They also allow us to identify any potential issues and provide treatment before they develop into something more severe.
Explore our guide to learn everything that takes place during a hygiene appointment.
We’ll begin your appointment by taking x-rays of your entire mouth. In the interest of your health and safety, we use digital x-rays at our practice. These devices reduce your exposure to radiation by 80%.
In addition to being safer, digital x-rays allow us to examine your smile in greater detail. This helps Dr. Skowron and Dr. Salari to pinpoint cavities, abscesses, and other issues that could threaten your health.
One of our hygienists will use our specialized dental tools to remove plaque from your teeth and gums, protecting your smile from cavities. Even if you practice excellent oral hygiene at home, these cleanings are still necessary to prevent decay from spreading through your mouth.
We’ll also clean and polish each of your teeth so you leave our office with a healthy, sparkling smile.
After our hygienist has thoroughly cleaned your teeth, Dr. Skowron or Dr. Salari will go over the results of your x-ray and thoroughly examine your teeth and gums. If you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort, they’ll address your concerns and find an ideal solution.
During this examination, they’ll also provide an oral cancer screening. This is an essential part of your check-up, as oral cancer can be fatal if it’s allowed to progress without treatment. By checking at least twice a year, we can stay ahead of the disease and ensure it never advances to a severe stage.
