The American Dental Association recommends scheduling dental cleanings and exams at least twice each year. If your last dental checkup was more than six months ago—or if you can’t even remember when you last saw the dentist—then don’t wait another minute to call Dr. Henry Hsue at Annigan Dental, your dentist in Bothell, WA. For new patients who do not have dental insurance, our practice offers a $69 special that includes a dental cleaning and exam as well as x-rays. Now, you have no excuse not to see the dentist!
Enjoy a Healthy Smile with Your Dentist in Bothell
Did you know that when you see someone with a beautiful smile you are also probably looking at a very healthy smile, too? People who take care of their teeth are more likely to have smiles that are attractive. Therefore, a dental checkup is just as much about the appearance of your smile as the health of your mouth.
During a dental cleaning at your 98011 dentist, one of our dental hygienists carefully brushes each one of your teeth in order to remove any stuck-on plaque as well as surface stains that might mar the whiteness of your teeth. If there are any spots of tartar, we can remove these too with a special hand instrument. After a dental cleaning, your teeth will feel smooth and your mouth will be refreshed.
Dental Exam for Dental Health
In addition to a thorough cleaning, your checkup will include a careful examination of your teeth, gum tissue and your entire oral cavity. Dr. Hsue will visually examine each tooth in order to find any noticeable spots of tooth decay. In addition, with digital x-rays we’ll be able to find decay that may be hiding just below the surface of a tooth or on the side of a tooth that is adjacent to the next.
We’ll carefully check your gums and measure the depth of gum pockets around your teeth. Gums that are red or swollen may indicate gingivitis. And deeper than usual pockets can be a sign of periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease that can ultimately cause teeth to loosen and necessitate extraction.
This exam also includes an oral cancer screening during which we look and feel for lesions, scaly patches or swollen areas of tissue.
