A Gentle Dental Cleaning

During your dental cleaning, our skilled hygienists will ensure your smile remains bright and healthy. Here's what you can expect:

  • Plaque and tartar removal: Our hygienists will carefully remove plaque and tartar using specialized tools. Plaque is a sticky film that harbors harmful bacteria, while tartar is hardened plaque that can only be removed professionally.
  • Polishing: After removing plaque and tartar, your teeth will be polished with a gentle yet effective paste. This step eliminates surface stains and leaves your teeth feeling smooth and refreshed.
  • Flossing: Our hygienists will floss between your teeth to remove any remaining debris or plaque buildup.
  • Fluoride treatment: If needed, we may apply fluoride to strengthen your tooth enamel and provide added protection against cavities.

Your Comprehensive Dental Exam

During your dental exam, our experienced dentist will thoroughly evaluate your oral health and address any concerns. Here's what you can expect:

  • Discussion and education: Our dentist will take the time to discuss their findings with you, answering any questions you may have. They will provide guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene practices at home and offer recommendations for preventive measures to help you preserve your smile.

Oral Cancer Screening

At Blooming Smiles Chicago, your oral health is our priority. That's why we include an oral cancer screening as part of our comprehensive dental checkups. Here's what you can expect during an oral cancer screening:

Visual examination: Our dentist will carefully inspect your mouth, including your lips, tongue, gums, throat, and other oral tissues. We look for abnormalities like sores, red or white patches, or suspicious lesions.

Manual palpation: Our dentist may gently feel the tissues in your mouth and neck with gloved hands. This allows them to detect any lumps, bumps, or irregularities requiring further investigation.

Additional diagnostic tests: In some cases, we may utilize advanced diagnostic tools to enhance our examination and detect potential abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Frequently Asked

How often should I have a dental checkup?

It's essential to prioritize your oral health, and regular dental checkups play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy smile. While the general recommendation is to have a dental checkup every six months, we understand that everyone's oral health needs are unique. Depending on your specific conditions or higher risk factors, your dentist may suggest more frequent visits to ensure optimal oral health.

What happens during a dental checkup?

During your dental checkup, our dedicated dental professionals will provide a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, and oral cavity. We believe in thorough care to identify any potential issues and address them promptly. Here's what you can expect during your dental checkup:

  • A thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues.
  • Detection of decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other oral health problems.
  • Gentle and effective removal of plaque, tartar, and stains through a dental cleaning.
  • Personalized recommendations for maintaining or improving your oral health.

Are dental checkups painful?

We understand that some individuals may experience discomfort or dental anxiety during dental checkups. Your comfort is our priority, and we are committed to ensuring a pleasant experience for every patient. If you have any concerns or dental anxiety, please inform us beforehand so that we can take the necessary steps to accommodate your needs. We offer techniques like sedation dentistry and create a calming environment to help ease dental anxiety and make your visit more comfortable.

Do dental checkups include X-rays?

Depending on your dental history and individual needs, X-rays may be a part of your dental checkup. X-rays provide a more detailed view of your teeth, jaw, and supporting structures, allowing us to identify any hidden issues that may not be visible during a visual examination. The frequency of X-rays varies based on factors such as age, dental health, and risk of dental problems. Rest assured that our team will make informed decisions regarding X-rays, considering both your oral health and safety.

Can dental checkups detect oral cancer?

Your oral health is our top priority, which is why we include an oral cancer screening as part of your dental checkup. Our dentists are trained to recognize the early signs of oral cancer during a visual examination of your mouth, throat, and oral tissues. Detecting oral cancer early significantly increases the chances of successful treatment and recovery, emphasizing the importance of regular dental checkups.

Can children have dental checkups?

Children deserve the best start for their oral health. That's why we recommend scheduling their first dental checkup as soon as their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Early dental checkups for children allow us to monitor their oral development, detect any potential issues, and establish good oral hygiene habits from an early age. We strive to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for children, making their dental visits a positive experience.

How much do dental checkups cost?

We understand that cost is a consideration for many patients. The cost of dental checkups can vary based on factors such as your dental insurance coverage and any specific treatments or X-rays performed during the visit. To get accurate information about the cost of dental checkups and your insurance coverage, we recommend contacting our dental office or your insurance provider. Our team is here to assist you and provide the necessary information to make informed decisions about your oral health.

Can I schedule a dental checkup if I have dental anxiety?

At our dental office, we prioritize your comfort and well-being. We understand that dental anxiety or fear can be a real concern for many patients. Rest assured, we are fully equipped to handle patients with dental anxiety, and our compassionate team is here to support you throughout your visit.

How do I book a dental checkup?
