DENTAL EXAMINATION AND CLEANING
Teeth cleaning and dental examinations go hand in hand. At our practice an experienced staff member will perform the cleaning and Dr Nate Lewis DDS will then do an examination
Twice Annual Dental Exams and Cleanings
A dental examination is a comprehensive and detailed process. It requires great attention to detail since such an examination could help in preventing more serious dental treatments. An examination can help in detecting decay, broken down teeth, and even oral cancer.
Dr Nate Lewis DDS may elect to take complete x-rays or a panoramic x-ray. He then examines the entire mouth area including the cheeks, palate, throat, tongue, mouth floor, and lips. The teeth are evaluated for cracks, cavities, malformations and malocclusions.
The dentist looks for any problems that a patient may have including oral cancer, cysts, benign tumors, or oral symptoms of cancer in other body parts.
After the examination, Dr Nate Lewis DDS assembles a personalized treatment plan for his client and educates him or her about all available treatment options. When necessary, a financial plan may be devised so that our client can utilize care.
Take care of your natural smile by having a dental exam twice annually.
