Preventitve Care

Upon your dental cleaning visit to Kenwood Advanced Dentistry, you will meet with a hygenist and Dr. Prater. The dental cleaning procedure is broken down into three stages:

  • Initial Check and Potential X-Rays
  • Cleaning and Prophylaxis
  • Check in with Dr. Prater



X-Rays

Depending on how long it has been since your last checkup, Dr. Prater will ask to take X-Rays of your teeth. X-rays allow for the diagnosis of cavities that form between your teeth and aid in assessing the bone levels and other supporting structures that hold your teeth in place.





Dental Cleaning and Prophylaxis

Sticking to a consistent dental cleaning routine is essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Your hygenist will begin the procedure by checking Your teeth and gums for any serious signs of decay or gum issues. Then the hygenist will clean your teeth which includes

  • Removal of plaque and tartar
  • Polishing and flossing teeth to remove unwanted stains left by coffee and other items
  • Oral cancer screening and oral hygine education



Check in with Dr. Prater

Once your teeth have been cleaned and x-rays taken, Dr. Prater will perform a comprehensive oral evaluation. This evaluation will include:

  • Assessing gum health for signs of disease
  • Confirming previous restorative work, such as crowns and bridges, are functioning properly
  • Evaluating all teeth for decay
  • Oral cancer examination
