We encourage each patient to visit our office for regular exams and checkups. These routine visits help our dentist provide comprehensive service for our patients, as well as prevent future issues. During your appointment, Lake Forest Dental will both clean and examine the teeth for potential problems. Some of these routine services we perform include:
- Cleaning and removing plaque buildup, also known as calculus. Left untreated, these can lead to dental decay and the development of gum disease.
- Floss between the teeth and polish any rough surfaces on the enamel.
- Inspect the tooth for any signs of tooth decay and inspect the gums for signs of gum disease.
In addition to physical inspection, Dr. Elizabeth Kim may also conduct an X-ray examination of the teeth. This provides a more thorough look at problems that may lurk in hard-to-reach places or underneath the surface of the enamel. Overall, regular exams and appointments help patients keep their smiles safe from future disease and decay.
