  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of cavities and evaluation growth and development.
  • Examination of tooth decay:All tooth surfaces will be checked for possible cavities or structural abnormalities.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer

Kids Dental Cleanings

Your child’s dental cleaning will include a dental exam and the following:


  • Teeth polishing:  Remove stain and plaque from tooth surfaces.
  • Removal of plaque:  Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. Bacteria in the plaque biome is the source of cavities and gum disease.
  • Removal of calculus (tartar):  Calculus is hardened plaque that is firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
