In order to have a strong and healthy oral cavity, Dr. David A. Browne strongly recommends coming into David A. Browne, DDS, PC every six months for a dental exam and cleaning.
A dental exam and cleaning in McHenry, Illinois, is the process of deeply cleaning your teeth and thoroughly examining your entire oral cavity. It will first begin with your hygienist scraping the surfaces of your teeth to eliminate the plaque that resides. This is a very important technique because it reduces any risks associated with gum disease or periodontal disease. Next, they will rinse, wash, floss, and polish your teeth. To conclude the cleaning, they will provide a fluoride treatment that will be in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish. Your hygienist will place the fluoride into your mouth and will ask you to wait for a few minutes, which will allow the minerals to soak into your teeth. This is a very beneficial treatment because it replaces the minerals that your teeth lose every day. With these minerals, your teeth will have the strength they need to fight bacteria, decay, and infection.
Your appointment will then end with your dentist thoroughly examining your entire oral cavity. During this visit, he will take x-rays of your teeth and bones to evaluate their condition and health. Your dentist will also visually examine your teeth and gums to make sure your mouth is healthy and free of disease, decay, and infection. If there are dental issues, treatment will be provided right away.
