Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The dentist and his/her fellow toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for take-off, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
