Professional Dental Cleaning
A professional dental cleaning starts with an examination of your teeth, gums, and bone tissue. Special instruments are used to evaluate health of oral tissues. This information will allow for proper diagnosis and treatment. Next, your hygienist will clean your teeth using specialized dental instruments. They will remove the excessive build-up of plaque and tartar from your teeth. The result will be a healthier smile.
After completion of professional dental cleaning, your hygienist will give you some tips on at home care and also point out any problem areas. A professional dental cleaning is suitable for both adults and children.
Routine Dental X-Rays
The procedure includes placing appropriate protective gear to protect you from radiation. Marielaina Perrone DDS believes in her patients health and utilizes a digital x-ray system designed to expose patients to a fraction of the radiation traditional x-rays use.
A dental examination starts with checking the overall condition of your teeth and gum tissues. They will also check to see if you have any concerns.
Dental examinations also include thoroughly checking for the presence of oral cancer. Dr Perrone will examine your jaw, sides of the tongue, inside lips, roof, and floor of your mouth to check for lesions or tumors. Dr Perrone also uses the VelScope oral cancer screening tool. This tool will shine a specialized light on your oral tissues to detect changes the human eye cannot see. If something is noted out of the ordinary, you will be referred to an oral surgeon for further diagnosis.
