Elements of a Dental Exam

Dental Exam St Paul MN | Highgrove Dental Care

If you need a dental cleaning in the St. Paul, MN area, our dental office currently welcomes new patients of all ages.

The first step of a dental cleaning requires a comprehensive dental exam so that we can determine the correct dental cleaning for you. Not all dental cleanings are the same. In fact, at Highgrove Dental Care, we customize your dental cleaning to meet your changing needs.

It All Starts with a Comprehensive Oral Evaluation

At your comprehensive dental exam, Dr. O’Neill will examine your teeth, gums, and bite. This exam determines your dental conditions and the health of your gums. He will then make a recommendation for the dental cleaning that will work best to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

If you have healthy teeth and gums, a routine dental cleaning every six months should be enough to help you meet your goals for your health and smile. If you have some catching up to do after missing a few dental cleanings, we have a midlevel dental cleaning that focuses on removing the tartar that collects on your teeth over time. This mid-level hygiene appointment can reverse the early signs of gum disease.

For patients with advanced periodontal disease, we offer highly focused dental cleanings that will help restore your health over time. Periodontal disease is an infection in your gums that puts not only your oral health but also your systemic health at risk. Once you suffer from advanced gum disease, it requires constant diligence to keep it under control. It is a chronic condition that will affect the future of your health unless kept in check.

All of our dental cleanings are designed with your needs in mind. Our hygienists are both thorough and gentle. They work with our patients to help them achieve optimum oral health.
