Dental Hygiene

Are you looking for a new dentist to perform regular exams and cleanings near you? Modern Dental Care knows what their patients need.

Our dentists need to assess your dental and oral health, as it will be their main indicator for any future treatment that may be needed. In regards to your oral health, our dentists provide the best care possible right here in Las Vegas, NV.

Some patients may require a dental check-up less frequently than others or more frequently based on how healthy their teeth and gums are.

How Is An Examination Performed?

During your exam, your dentist will look at your mouth internally and externally, as well as your jaw joints. Existing restorations to your teeth in the form of fillings and crowns will be thoroughly accessed.

Your dentist will also examine your gums’ health using a soft round-headed instrument called a periodontal probe. Your gums are the supporting structure of your teeth and are equally as important as your teeth.

Your dentist will occasionally require an x-ray of your teeth as part of your dental exam. These small, low dosage images help to better assess the state of your teeth and their structure for any restoration they may require.

Teeth Cleaning Services At Modern Dental Care

Our dentists may suggest you have your teeth cleaned by the dentist or hygienist during your dental examination. For some patients, a full mouth scaling procedure may be necessary to assess the patient’s teeth and gums better. Occasionally, plaque and tartar can build up on teeth, making assessment of teeth and surrounding gums more challenging.

Regular cleanings every six months, along with proper brushing and flossing, significantly reduce the chance of plaque and tartar build-up, therefore reducing the chance of more serious dental concerns in the future.
