The Dental Examination

A comprehensive dental exam and cleaning are recommended twice-yearly for children and adults. During your initial dental examination at Dr. Mae Fong Family Dentistry, our staff will take full mouth X-rays to ensure the health of your gums, teeth, and jaw. X-rays will not be required at every visit, and Dr. Fong will discuss whether new X-rays will be required.

During a twice-yearly check-up, patients receive a thorough examination of their teeth, gums, tongue, jaw, and neck. Dr. Fong or one of our experienced dental hygienists will examine each tooth for cavities, plaque, or damage using a small pick instrument and mirror. An examination of your gums will detect if any gum disease is present or needs treatment. Your head, neck and jaw are examined to diagnose any possible issues with glands or joints, such as TMJ disorder. If necessary, Dr. Fong may recommend additional X-rays, an oral cancer screening, or a further periodontal inspection.

Comprehensive Dental Cleaning

After the comprehensive examination and evaluation, one of our professional and knowledgeable dental hygienists will perform a comprehensive cleaning. Professional cleanings are recommended to be given twice a year to prevent cavities and identify any oral health issues as early as possible. A professional cleaning supplements the oral hygiene you maintain at home.

While it is recommended that adults brush three times a day and floss once a day, many patients only brush their teeth twice a day and floss less than once a day. A deep cleaning twice a year by one of our professional dental hygienists includes a polishing and a fluoride treatment to prevent cavities and protect teeth from decay.
