Doing check up twice a year will ensure that a number of diseases will be stopped at the early stages. The check up includes: Visual Examination: during the visual examination we test for Oral cancer screening: we check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, and gums for any signs of oral cancer. Gum disease evaluation: we check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease. Examination of tooth decay: all tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments. Examination of existing restorations: we check current fillings, crowns, etc. X-ray: Dental x-rays may reveal: Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line. Developmental abnormalities. Bone loss. Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, your teeth, and your life! X-ray Radiation Safety: Even regular dental X-ray apparatus are considered to produce a safe dose of irradiation. Still, our digital X-ray apparatus produces 90% less irradiation than a regular dental X-ray examination, and is equivalent to the amount of irradiation you would receive by staying under the Sun for a few minutes.


Regular cleaning will not only keep your smile bright but will also further reduce the possibility of paradonthosis. The cleaning includes: Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments. 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. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease! Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.


Scaling/Root Plaining, more commonly known as Deep Cleaning, is gum therapy to remove subgingival (below the gum) calculus deposits and bacteria (performed to reduce periodontal pockets, reduce bleeding, treating periodontal disease, prevention of its spread).


A treatment for patients affected by gum decease, who require deeper and more frequent cleaning. Such patients usually require deep cleaning for the first treatment and periodontal maintenance treatment 3-4 times a year afterwards.


This is a simple and painless procedure to protect your child’s molar teeth, from decay by closing deep groves, which are likely cavity sites. The molar teeth are most vulnerable for decay.


A several-minute treatment that enhances tooth remineralization, kills bacteria, and reduces root/tooth sensitivity.
