Just as the field of dentistry has advanced through the years, so have our preventive services. What was often referred to as "just a cleaning", is now much more. A dental hygiene or recare appointment, as it is now known as, includes the cleaning and polishing, which most patients are familiar with. However, some of the other services include a thorough hard and soft tissue evaluation, oral cancer screening, periodontal disease screening, and much more.
When our patients visit our office for their routine hygiene appointments, they will see one of our highly trained dental hygienists who will perform the prophylaxis (cleaning) and take any necessary X-Rays. At some point during the appointment, Dr. Mark McCracken or Dr. Kirk McCracken will perform the periodic oral evaluation. They will review the X-Rays as well as thoroughly examine the oral cavity. This is a great time for the patients to interact with the doctors and ask any questions that they may have regarding their oral health.
The dental hygienist will also discuss the overall health of each patient's mouth as well as review any current dental products that may benefit their homecare.
