Doctor Jansen Donoghue and his experienced staff pore over mouths, searching for signs of disease or hints of trouble. During dental cleanings, a technician whisks away tartar and plaque before polishing teeth, reducing stains and residue. As part of the dental exam, a trained technician takes a radiographic image of pearly whites, which reveals bone loss, tumors, and cysts more effectively than traditional Etch-A-Sketch imaging. Next, a doctor examines the mouth for oral cancer or gum disease and monitors tusks for any signs of tooth decay. Finally, the doctor checks the sturdiness of restorations such as crowns, fillings, and permanent plastic fangs.
To maximize the mileage from every dental visit, the doctor elucidates proper brushing, flossing, and rinsing for patients. Alternatively, Chamisa Hills’s cosmetic-dentistry practices keep clients’ grins even and gleaming, with porcelain crowns, veneers, and at-home custom whitening, among other treatments.
