Dental Exam & Cleaning
Dental Exam and Cleaning in North Hollywood
At Victory Plaza Dental Group, we know the benefits of preventative care. That’s why every visit to our practice in Los Angeles begins with a comprehensive exam.
Our office is a modern, comfortable place for the whole family to obtain affordable, personalized dental care. Before your first visit, and during every interaction, we want to offer you a little peace of mind.
The Advantage of Regular Checkups
Regular visits to the dentist are meant to protect your teeth and preserve your oral health. They detect the onset of problems like gum disease and more serious conditions like oral cancers. Best of all, they’ll keep your pearly whites bright and form the basis to correct problems like missing or broken teeth, misalignment, and other dental problems.
You should visit your dentist for routine checkups and cleanings. The American Dental Association recommends an exam at least twice a year, ideally every six months. You’ll need to visit us more often if you have ongoing issues or more serious needs.
Children should have their first checkup shortly after they get their first tooth, but before their first birthday. This is to ensure that their teeth are forming properly and there are no problems with alignment.
What to Expect During Your Oral Exam at Victory Plaza Dental Group
Our practice is family-friendly and equipped for patient comfort. Your initial exam will include X-rays to detect the presence of tumors, bone loss, and cysts as well as screenings for:
- Oral cancers
- Gum disease
- Deterioration of previous restoration work like bridges, crowns, and fillings
You’ll also enjoy a thorough cleaning, known as dental prophylaxis. which is performed by our hygienist. This process will include plaque and tartar removal and a good polishing. If we find any problems that need attention, we can schedule you for a followup appointment at this time. Otherwise, we’ll book your next exam for six months in the future.
Simple procedures like fillings can probably be completed after your exam. Your dentist will also provide you with instructions for tooth care until your next appointment.
