A professional dental cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health. Professional cleanings reinforce the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives the hygienist and dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention. During a dental cleaning, you will receive diagnostic and preventive services from Dr. Amin, as well as any needed educational information.

 

Diagnostic services may include:

  • Reviewing and updating medical history

  • Oral cancer examination and screening

  • Periodontal Evaluation

  • Evaluation of gum tissue

  • Checking biting, chewing and swallowing patterns

  • X-rays or examination of teeth to detect decay

  • Referral to specialists for specific treatment

 

Preventive services may include:

  • Removal of plaque and tartar

  • Stain removal

  • Fluoride application

  • Sealants (for children)

  • Polishing teeth, including fillings and crowns

  • Cleaning and adjustment of dentures and partial dentures

  • Educational services may include:
