If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, it is important that you visit us at our Leeman Dental practice for periodic oral exams and teeth cleanings. Our Great Neck best dentist, Dr. Lee, provides patients with dental exams which are thorough and will thoroughly assess the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
During our dental exams, our Great Neck best dentist will most likely request that you have a full set of x-rays taken if you have not had this performed over the past year. The x-rays will help our dentist to determine whether or not any cavities or problems are developing between the teeth or below the gum line. Our dentist will then carefully screen your mouth for any signs of oral cancer. Your bite will also be assessed to make sure that you are not developing any problems from TMJ or teeth grinding. Your teeth will also be visually examined to make sure that they do not have any other problems such as marks from teeth grinding, or cracked fillings. Our dentist will also thoroughly assess the health of your gums. If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular teeth cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If during the dental exam it is seen that deep pockets have formed between the teeth and gums, you will most likely need to have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment performed. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the gums which should be able to help your gums return to excellent health over the coming months.
