Cleanings and Exams


Cleaning and Exams at Michael B. Litchfield, DMD, Family DentistryProfessional cleanings performed by a licensed dentist or hygienist are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Using specialized tools and training, your hygienist at Michael B. Litchfield, DMD, Family Dentistry will remove:
•  Plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth. Bacteria in the mouth form plaque, which collects on teeth and causes decay, gum disease and gingivitis
•  Tartar from teeth surfaces. Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has become hardened on the teeth; its removal requires scaling
•  Surface stains from teeth through polishing
Some patients will require a deep cleaning due to gum disease and past periodontal treatments. Dr. Michael B. Litchfield will review your past dental history and identify any issues you may need treatment for.

Examinations

Regular examinations, by Dr. Michael B. Litchfield, help detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Dental examinations generally include the following:
•  Gum disease screening
•  Oral cancer screening
•  Visual tooth decay evaluation
•  Gum pocket measurement and tracking
•  X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums and other hidden issues
Regular examinations by Dr. Michael B. Litchfield are very important for your health. Remember, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." –Benjamin Franklin
