Our friendly dentists, Dr. Becker and Dr. Pistoia strongly recommend coming into My Dental Care every six months for a dental exam and dental cleaning in Fishers, Indiana.
During this appointment, our team will scrape the surfaces of your teeth to remove the plaque that resides there. This is a great way to eliminate the risks associated with gingivitis and periodontal disease. We will then scrub, wash, rinse, floss, and polish your teeth. This technique is one that will deeply clean your teeth and gums, including the areas in your mouth that are hard to reach. To finish the cleaning, we will give you a flavored fluoride treatment that will be in the form of a gel, varnish, or foam. When we place the fluoride into your mouth, we will ask you to wait for a short amount of time. As the time passes, the fluoride minerals will soak into your teeth and they will nourish and strengthen them so they are able to fight harmful substances. When the time runs out, we will remove the fluoride and rinse your mouth with cool, refreshing water.
Your dental exam will then involve your dentist coming into the room and checking your medical records. Then, they will use special tools to visually evaluate your entire oral cavity. To examine closer into your mouth, digital dental x-rays will be taken, which are detailed images that show your teeth, roots, and underlying bone. If you have any dental issues, they will be treated as soon as possible. If you do not, your dentist will congratulate and praise you.
