Bi-Annual Examinations and Patient Education

The best practice to prevent dental issues is to visit the dentist at least twice a year. These examinations provide our dentists and staff the insight needed to determine your oral health. During six-month checkups, we monitor gum health and look for signs of tooth decay.

We conduct dental exams at our Toledo dental office with your comfort and ease in mind. We begin appointments by providing an oral cancer screening and examining the head and neck. Our dentists ask if patients have experienced headaches or pain in the jaw. Finding lesions or signs of oral cancer can significantly improve recovery rates if caught early. We complete exams with a discussion of options and recommend services before beginning treatment.

Toledo Dental Arts understands that patients can be fearful of visiting the dentist. We tailor each experience to our patients comfort level and accommodate as much as possible while they undergo their dental exam and cleaning.

Professional Dental Cleanings

Although proper home care, brushing twice a day and flossing is a sure way to keeping your smile healthy, having your teeth and gums cleaned by a professional ensures the best oral health possible. We move you on to a dental cleaning with our gentle hygienists once your treatment plan and examination is complete.

Professional cleanings remove the main source of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Plaque and tartar made up of infections bacteria attach themselves to tooth roots and can cause major decay. Tartar cannot be removed by brushing alone. Our hygienists gently remove this tough film using advanced dental tools. Afterwards, we apply fluoride to strengthen tooth enamel and protect the smile against decay.
