DENTAL CLEANINGS & EXAMS
Dr. Oyangen has always recommended that our patients in Schenectady NY receive a dental exam and cleaning at least two times a year. Obtaining good oral health can be as easy as routine brushing and flossing, but for some people removing plaque and tartar may be more difficult.
Our hygienists are trained to remove this sticky cavity-causing bacteria from your teeth and help you to avoid future dental issues including Gum Disease.
What Causes Gum Disease
If this plaque is allowed to build up on your teeth it will eventually travel down into the pockets surrounding each tooth. The gum tissue will then become inflamed and bacteria will proceed to start destroying that tooth, or teeth, and the surrounding bone. If this process continues the tooth, or teeth, will eventually become loose and will need to be removed. By removing plaque from your teeth our hygienists are also helping you to maintain overall good health.
At Advanced Aesthetics, our standard of care is designed to help you, the patient, feel comfortable and anxiety-free during any visit. During your dental cleaning, our hygienist will review your medical health and update any new medications you have been prescribed. They will perform a visual oral cancer screening and offer a more in-depth screening with our VELSCOPE ORAL CANCER SCREENING SYSTEM.
We also screen everyone for gum disease using a special tool to measure the space between your gums and teeth. This aids in determining the health of your gums which in turn will determine what type of dental cleaning you will require. Some people will need a more involved cleaning if periodontal disease is present.
