Ignore your teeth and they'll go away! That's been our motto for the more than 35 years that we have been serving Edmonds. We think the message of prevention is loud and clear … and we are about prevention. Those regular, periodic visits for a cleaning and checkup can completely eliminate painful and costly surprises. A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by our dentist at your initial dental visit as well as at regular check-ups and will include the following:
Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
Check current fillings, crowns, bridges, implants and dentures.
