Complete Dental Checkups
We conduct comprehensive dental exams for existing and new patients. These exams allow us to keep track of your dental health and for the timely detection of any problems, allowing treatment to be administered immediately. It is recommended that you visit us for a dental checkup every six months.
At a regular dental exam, we will examine your teeth and mouth for any signs of gum disease and tooth decay. The tooth surfaces are checked using special dental instruments. We will also check any existing restorations such as sealants, crowns, fillings, veneers etc. for signs of wear and tear and advise upon any needed replacements or repairs.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Regular dental exams at Hammond Dental also include a comprehensive screening for oral cancer. We will check your lips, tongue, gums, throat and oral tissues for any signs of abnormalities.
Professional Dental Cleanings
Also known as prophylaxis, a professional dental cleaning performed at our office is a great way to deeply cleanse the mouth. We use special dental instruments to scrape off any hardened plaque (calculus or tartar) from the tooth surface, and from above and below the gum line. After that, we will polished the teeth to remove surface stains and any remaining plaque. Professional cleanings help to clean the hidden areas of the mouth and are a great way to get rid of bad breath and keep your mouth fresh and clean.
We use digital radiography to detect any hidden problems within your oral structures. Digital X-rays use an electronic sensor and a computer, rather than traditional film that must be developed, allowing us to instantly view them on a screen. The advantages of digital X-rays are that they are more quick to view and take, more detailed and much safer as they emit much less radiation than traditional X-rays.
