Bergenfield Dental provides new and existing patients with comprehensive dental checkups that include a professional teeth cleaning and an oral cancer screening. We advise our patients to visit us for a complete dental checkup at least twice per year. By conducting these regularly scheduled checkups, our oral care specialists can provide patients with the best possible service and administer timely treatment in the event that any important issues are discovered.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Also called prophylaxis, a professional teeth cleaning consists of a deep cleanse of the entire mouth, including all teeth and gums. We remove all plaque that has built up upon the surface of the patient’s teeth and below the gum line using specialized dental tools. Next, the teeth are cleansed and polished as a way of eliminating surface stains and any plaque that still remains. This process provides patients with a long-lasting sense of oral freshness, while also reducing bad breath for many months to come.
Oral Cancer Screening
A thorough examination for the presence of oral cancer is one of the most important parts of a complete dental checkup. Our oral health specialists check the lips, tongue, face, gums, throat and oral tissue for any signs or symptoms of cancer. A biopsy will be conducted as soon as possible if any abnormalities are discovered.
The dental care experts at Bergenfield Dental look forward to providing you with outstanding service at your next complete dental checkup. Please call us at (201) 384-0100 to schedule an appointment.
