Maintaining Healthy, Happy Smiles
At Summit Dental Care, we can provide you with the care you need to maintain a healthy mouth and improve the quality of your smile. We provide comprehensive services for patients both young and old, ensuring nothing but the best possible care.
During your regular check-up, we’ll complete a comprehensive exam of your teeth and gums. Exams allow us to look for any signs of decay, cavities, chips, cracks, and other damage to your teeth. We’ll also look at your gums to spot redness, swelling, recession, and periodontal pockets.
In addition to looking over your teeth and gums, we’ll also examine other soft tissues of your mouth. This includes any sort of abnormalities, such as unusual patches of tissue and lumps. By spotting issues early, we can take immediate action to stop their progression and protect your mouth from more serious consequences.
We’ll give you a professional cleaning to remove plaque and bacteria, whiten your teeth, and improve the quality of your smile during your dental check-up.
One of our dental hygienists will begin by scraping the crowns of your teeth and along your gum line. This process, called scaling, is done to eliminate plaque, bacteria, tartar, and other debris such as food particles. While brushing and flossing are also meant to remove plaque and bacteria, you might miss harder to reach areas.
After scaling, your teeth are then polished, which gives them a smooth, shiny, clean look and feel. Finally, your teeth are thoroughly flossed.
