When it comes to the care of your teeth and gums, prevention is paramount. And while brushing and flossing your teeth daily does wonders for your oral health, no dental hygiene regimen is complete without bi-yearly trips to the dentist. Without them, you’re vulnerable to tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. That’s why our very own Dr. Rana enjoys using his extensive experience and clinical expertise to help each of his patients achieve healthy, strong, beautiful smiles. If you are overdue for your checkup and cleaning, don’t hesitate to contact our office to schedule yours!
Your routine visit to our office is broken up into two parts: the dental exam and the professional cleaning. After Dr. Rana has asked you a few questions pertaining to your oral health, he will examine the condition of your teeth, gums, existing dental work, and surrounding oral structures. If needed, he will take X-rays to get a more detailed look at the hard-to-see areas of your mouth (like between your teeth). From there, he will discuss his findings and develop a personalized treatment plan if any restorative work is needed.
Then it is time for your professional cleaning with one of our fantastic hygienists. They will use powerful tools to remove stubborn plaque and caked-on tartar. To wrap up your appointment, they will polish your teeth to remove stubborn surface stains and make your pearly whites truly shine!

Plus, we can share tips for improving your at-home routine, provide product recommendations, and answer any questions you have about your oral health!
From preventing decay to thoroughly cleaning the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth, routine dental checkups and cleanings are crucial for your teeth and gums. So, if you are overdue for your bi-yearly visit, don’t hesitate to contact our office today!
