The goal of our dental cleaning and examinations is to keep your teeth and gums healthy and free from dental issues. We provide ongoing oral and dental care along with professional advice to help you practice good habits of oral hygiene at home.
Even if you are taking proper care of your teeth and oral cavity, you need to have regular cleaning and examinations in Livermore. This helps you to keep your gums, teeth, and oral cavity healthy and problem-free.
You should visit the 4th Street Dental Livermore office every six months to have a professional dental cleaning and examination. This helps to remove any accumulated plaque and detect as well as prevent any arising dental issues.
In the first phase, we perform a detailed examination of your mouth. Our specialist examines your teeth for any signs of cavities, plaque, and tartar. The build-up of tartar can lead to teeth and gum diseases.
Next, we check your gum health. We employ a special tool to measure the depth of the space that exists between your gums and teeth. When your gums are healthy, there are shallow spaces while in the case of gum diseases, these spaces become deep.
The dental examination also includes a careful tongue, throat, face, and neck examination for any signs of inflammation, swelling, redness, or possible mouth cancer.
During the second phase of dental cleaning and examination in Livermore, your teeth are thoroughly cleaned using the latest equipment. Plaque can be removed with regular brushing and flossing at home, but it does not remove tartar build-ups. Our expert dental staff remove that hard tartar from your teeth, a process called scaling.
After scaling, your teeth may be polished to remove dullness and surface stains. For this purpose, we use a special dental paste. The last step is flossing to get to those hard to reach areas between the teeth. This process helps to ensure the health of your teeth and gums. We perform dental cleaning and examination in Livermore for both children and adults.
