Preventative Dentistry

Dental Examination

Your friendly dentist at Alexander Drive Dental Clinic will check your teeth for cavities and your gums for any sign of gum-disease. Plaque is a film of bacteria that sticks onto your teeth. When the plaque builds up, it will harden and form calculus. Calculus cannot be removed with just tooth brushing and requires special instruments to remove it.

Dental Xrays

Dental radiographs (x-rays) are very important in diagnosing and preventing oral disease that is not visible to the naked-eye. Your dentist can assess the radiograph and find any hidden infection or abnormalities, and give you a complete account of your teeth and mouth. Without the radiographs, many potential diseases will not be detected.

Scale and Clean

Brushing and flossing help clean the plaque and food debris from your teeth. Over time, plaque becomes calcified from the calcium and phosphate in your saliva, and when this happens your regular toothbrush is not powerful enough to remove it.
