Dental Hygiene/Exams

At Southwest Dentistry, we believe that dental hygiene and regular exams are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. Our dedicated team of dental professionals, including experienced dental hygienists, is committed to providing comprehensive dental care to our patients. We understand the importance of preventive measures and the role they play in keeping your smile healthy and beautiful.

Dental Hygiene

Good oral hygiene practices are the foundation of a healthy smile. Our dental hygienists will educate you on the importance of proper brushing and flossing techniques to effectively remove plaque and food particles. We will also discuss the benefits of using mouthwash and interdental cleaning tools to maintain optimal oral hygiene. Regular dental cleanings performed by our skilled hygienists will help prevent dental issues and keep your teeth and gums in great shape.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Our comprehensive dental exams are designed to assess your oral health thoroughly. During the examination, our dentists will carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and oral tissues for any signs of dental problems. We may also take dental X-rays to obtain a comprehensive assessment of your oral health. Based on the findings, we will discuss any potential issues and provide recommendations for appropriate treatment.

Periodontal (Gum) Health

Healthy gums are essential for maintaining overall oral health. We emphasize the importance of gum health and its impact on your well-being. Our dental team is experienced in periodontal exams and treatments, including deep cleanings and scaling, and root planing. Regular monitoring and maintenance of gum health are crucial in preventing gum disease and preserving the health of your smile.

Oral Cancer Screening

Regular oral cancer screenings are vital for early detection and better treatment outcomes. Our dental professionals are trained to identify the risk factors and signs of oral cancer. Through a comprehensive examination of your oral tissues, throat, and neck, we can promptly detect any abnormalities and collaborate with healthcare professionals to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment if necessary.

Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays are an essential tool in dental exams, allowing us to detect hidden dental problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. We will explain the purpose and benefits of dental X-rays and discuss different types of X-rays, such as bitewing and panoramic X-rays. With our state-of-the-art digital X-ray technology, we can obtain detailed images while minimizing radiation exposure. Your safety and well-being are our top priorities.

Patient Education and Oral Health Promotion

We believe that patient education is key to maintaining excellent oral health. Our dental team will provide you with valuable information and resources to help you make informed decisions about your oral care. We will discuss oral health education materials, offer advice on maintaining a healthy diet, and provide tips on lifestyle habits that promote good oral hygiene. We are here to support you in achieving and maintaining a beautiful smile.

Customized Treatment Plans

At Southwest Dentistry, we understand that every patient is unique. We take the time to develop personalized treatment plans based on your individual needs and goals. Our dental hygienists work closely with our dentists to tailor preventive measures and treatments specifically for you. We emphasize the importance of ongoing communication and regular follow-up appointments to ensure your oral health remains at its best.

Children’s Dental Hygiene and Exams

Early dental care is essential for children to establish a lifetime of healthy smiles. We recognize the significance of pediatric dental exams and treatments. Our dental team is experienced in providing gentle and compassionate care for children.
