REGULAR HYGIENE VISIT AND EXAMS
At Crown Isle Dental, our regular hygiene visits are stress-free and designed to help you feel excited about the health of your teeth and gums.
No matter your age, our goal is to help you feel confident and empowered when it comes to your dental health.
A Quick Look at Your Appointment
You are welcomed as usual by our friendly front desk administrators.
You are escorted to one of our bright and welcoming operatory.
Each operatory is equipped with an intra-oral camera which allows us to take pictures in your mouth with great detail. We will be able to show you what is going on with your mouth exactly.
Our hygienists known for their gentle touch, carefully clean your teeth of tartar and plaque followed by polishing and Fluoride application (if desired). They also provide their expert customized advice for your oral health in a friendly manner without being preachy.
Questions or concerns about your dental health? Let us know what’s bothering you. Dr. Sharma, Dr. Al or Dr. Genier will examine your teeth and gums again. If they notice anything that needs extra attention like signs of gum disease or tooth decay, they will discuss restorative treatment options to help you get your dental health back on track.
Pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth are completely normal, but also very difficult to clean. Food and bacteria get easily trapped in these crevices and fuel decay.
We offer dental sealant treatments to help protect these hard-to-reach, “groovy” teeth and prevent cavities. Anyone can benefit from a dental sealant, but we especially recommend this treatment for our young patients.
While cavities that are caught early can be treated quickly and easily with a filling, preventing cavities with sealants is a preferable option for a few reasons:
Cavities weaken teeth, so preventing them keeps teeth stronger.
Applying dental sealants is painless and requires no anesthesia, unlike fillings.
It’s more expensive to get a cavity filled than to get a sealant for teeth.
