Wether you are still searching for a gentler dentist in Phoenix, or you are just new to the area, you seem already to understand the importance of regularly scheduled dental care! Our state of the art diagnostic tools prove over and over that prevention is the best medicine. Dental treatments can be costly, if not caught early. Regular dental exams and cleanings aid in the early detection and treatment of hidden dental abnormalities such as:
A complete dental exam will be performed at your initial dental visit. A full mouth series of dental X-rays is recommended for new patients. A full series is usually good for three to five years.Your exam will include a full mouth series of dental and digital x-rays. Future regularly scheduled check-up exams will include digital or dental x-rays based on individual dental health needs and a professional dental cleaning, performed by our expert Dental Hygienists. These cleanings serve to screen for the above-mentioned abnormalities, as well as to do the following:
X-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. The need for X-rays depends on your individual dental health needs. Your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend necessary X-rays based upon the review of your medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease. Without X-rays, problem areas can go undetected.
Dental x-rays have been used for generations to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. We are not the first dentist in Phoenix to use digital radiography (digital X-ray), the latest technology used to take dental X-rays. This technique uses sensors to snap a picture that they can view, enlarge and save on a computer. This new technology reduces radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental X-rays.
