Our dental examination process
During a dental examination, Dr. Jay Elbrecht or a hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease. They will evaluate your risk of developing other oral health problems! A dental exam might also include dental X-rays (radiographs) or other diagnostic procedures.
Dr. Jay Elbrecht can remove a lot of tartar and plaque during a regular cleaning. You will still have to perform proper maintenance on your own mouth each and every day. Routine dental cleanings and proper daily care will help keep your teeth and mouth clean, fresh and disease free.
