Get Your Teeth Clean and Healthy During Dental Exams

If you check out our patient testimonials, you’ll find one word that many patients use to describe us is “thorough.” While that’s a great quality for a dental team to have any time, it’s especially true during dental exams and dental cleanings.

That’s because your dental exams are where we get to know you better as a person, not just a patient. We’ll take time to discuss any special concerns you may have and anything else we need to know to give you the best quality care.

We’ll Give You a Thorough Dental Exam

We don’t just check for cavities during your dental exams. We look for other issues too, such as:

  • Gum disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Dental wear-and-tear that can indicate troublesome teeth grinding

So we don’t miss anything, we use some of the latest dental technologies, like:

  • DIAGNOdent, a handheld tool that helps us locate cavities in their earliest stages using laser fluorescence.
  • Digital X-rays, which provide fast and accurate images using less radiation than traditional X-rays. We can enlarge or sharpen images to get a closer look.
  • Intraoral camera, a handheld camera that not only helps us see into all of your mouth’s nooks and crannies but also to share the view with you.

We Keep Your Teeth Clean and Healthy

It’s hard to reach all the areas where bacteria collects in your mouth, even with regular brushing and flossing. Our Plymouth, MI dental hygienists remove plaque from all the areas that are easy to miss at home. They use an ultrasonic scaler, which is quicker and more comfortable than traditional dental tools.

We can also supplement your dental cleaning with proactive treatments like dental sealants and fluoride applications. While often used for children, these treatments also work well for adults with certain conditions.

Make your dental cleanings regularly and don’t miss dental exams! Call Douglas A. Callow, DDS office at 734-404-7336, or contact us using our online form. Our Plymouth, MI dentist office is located at 9357 General Drive, Ste. 112.
