  • Full-mouth dental and periodontal (gum) exam - Examinations are conducted in a private setting, with detail and a thorough manner. We employ the latest in technology and techniques to help determine your personalized dental needs. At the same time, we use digital radiography (low radiation), Computer Cosmetic Imaging, Microscopic intra-oral-dentistry cameras to evaluate and display your dental needs. You will participate in your evaluation.
  • Cleaning, Periodontal Scaling, Polishing and Flossing -
    Dental Cleaning - Dental cleaning is the professional cleaning you can only receive from a qualified dentist or dental hygienist. Routine dental cleaning includes scaling and polishing. These important steps are outlined in detail below.
    Scaling - This is the removal of plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces with different types of scaling being used in relation to the amount of plaque and tartar. Dentist and Dental hygienist perform traditional scaling by hand. Advances in technology have led to more modern methods such as electric scalers, which allow dental cleaning to be done in much shorter period of time. However, to achieve best results, electric and manual scaling should be combined in dental cleaning. Ultrasonic scaling uses a machine called a cavitron, which uses sound waves to remove tartar. Ultrasonic scalers can only remove 50% of total tartar buildup so hand scaling must follow cavitron scaling. People who wear pacemaker cannot get ultrasonic scaling because the ultrasonic sound can interfere with the function of the pacemaker.
    Polishing - This is the finishing touch of rubbing on the surface of the teeth. There are two kinds of polisher, the prophy jet polishing and rubber tip polishing with prophy paste. Prophy jet polishing works by spraying high pressured water mixed with baking soda paste onto the surface of your teeth. This powered water can wash away the residue and plaque, while the baking soda removes the brown and yellow stains and neutralizes the acidic conditions in your mouth. Rubber cup polishing employs a low-speed hand piece with a rubber cup tip mounted on the top that contains a polishing paste that is made of abrasive ingredients ideal for removing stains.  The amount of time needed for dental cleaning depends on factors from plaque deposits, complication of dental restorations and your gingival health. People with more tartar and plaque buildup need longer appointments than those who have relatively cleaner teeth. In a moderate case dental cleaning should take about 25 to 30 minutes. Cleaning should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque build up. Lack of cleaning allows the growth of plaque, which if left unchecked can lead to the various types of conditions involved in tooth decay.


  • Oral cancer screening
  • Periodic radiographs (X-Rays) to detect decay, bone loss or tumors
  • Consultation and recommendations
  • Extractions
