Routine dental exams and cleanings can help in achieving a healthy smile

When you visit the team at SK2 Dental of Dallas, Texas, for an examination and cleaning, you might want to understand better what to expect. Dr. Stanley Ngo and his team are committed to ensuring you have a healthy smile, starting with preventative and proactive dental care. Let’s look at the process of checking in and undergoing your routine dental visit with our team.

What to expect during your routine dental visit

First, when you arrive, you check in with our friendly front office team. After completing your paperwork, one of our team members will escort you to an exam room.

At the dental examination, we will use dental x-rays and other tools to assess your mouth for signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues. We look at all visible surfaces of each tooth to identify any cavities or areas that may need further attention.

After the initial examination, your teeth will be cleaned by a dental hygienist with special instruments designed specifically for this purpose. During the cleaning process, plaque and tartar are removed from the surfaces of your teeth. The hygienist also polishes your teeth with a unique gritty toothpaste that helps remove surface stains.

Once the cleaning is complete, our dental team will take a few minutes to discuss your oral health and answer any questions you may have. We provide personalized recommendations on maintaining good oral hygiene habits at home, which may include specific recommendations for the toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash you might use.
