Dental Exams and Cleanings in Springfield, IL
On a daily basis, you floss, brush, and care for your teeth. But to ensure your pearly whites look their best, you should visit a dentist every six months for dental cleanings and exams.
At Milner Dentistry in Springfield, IL, we provide quality dental cleanings to keep your teeth free of plaque and tartar, and we offer thorough exams to make sure your gums and teeth are healthy.
When you come in for a cleaning, our registered dental hygienists will take great care of you. Our cleanings include:
- Plaque removal
- Calculus (or tartar) removal
- Teeth polishing
While brushing and flossing can help remove plenty of plaque, plaque can still get stuck in the cracks and crevices of the teeth and gums, producing toxins that contribute to gum disease. And if the plaque lingers for too long, it can turn into calculus, or hardened plaque, which can only be removed with specialized dental tools.
When you come in for a cleaning, our hygienists will clean away any lingering plaque and tarter, and they’ll polish your teeth for a smooth, clean feel.
Not only will we carefully clean your teeth, we’ll also perform a comprehensive exam to check for any issues. In our exams, we’ll check for:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Oral cancer
- Restoration damage (crowns, fillings, etc.)
As part of our exam, we’ll also perform an X-ray to look for tumors, bone loss, cysts, or decay. We’ll also spot incoming teeth and root systems and make sure they’re on the right track.
