A professional cleaning at Haake Family Dental won’t just freshen your breath, but it will also help keep your smile healthy. Plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth over time, leading to decay and gum disease. The best way to protect your teeth against cavities, stains and harmful bacteria is to schedule regular cleanings for you and your family.
Our team will perform a full examination of your mouth to assess your overall oral health. We will check your teeth for decay or damage, as well as evaluate the condition of any fillings, crowns, bridges or other dental repair work. We will also examine your gums, lips, cheeks and tongue for any signs of disease or other issues. During your exam, our team will recommend any improvements to your or your child’s dental hygiene to help your whole family maintain good oral health.
Digital X-rays allow us to assess the health of your teeth, tooth roots and jawbone below the surface of your gums to gain a complete view of your overall oral health. Digital X-rays are immediately ready to review, allowing us to quickly diagnose signs of decay or disease in these important tissues. Digital X-rays also emit up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays!
As part of your exam, our team uses DiagnoDent to check your teeth for signs of decay. This handheld tool allows us to see early cavities and other dental issues that we can’t detect with a visual or physical examination.
Early detection is critical in treating oral cancer. Oral cancer often goes undiagnosed because it doesn’t present obvious or painful symptoms. We provide oral cancer screening to our patients to check for the signs of oral cancer and help our patients better understand their overall oral health.
