Untreated dental issues often worsen rapidly and involve costly and complicated treatments at a later stage.

Steps Involved in Exams and Cleanings

Dental exams and cleanings in New Westminster, BC include a series of screening procedures. Our skilled team of dentists can complete your dental exam in roughly 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your current oral health.

Visual Checkup: Our trusted dentists will examine your teeth for signs of decay, infection, caries, or gaps. We will also look for chipped, cracked, or broken teeth.

Low Radiation X-Rays: Our dentists may recommend low radiation diagnostic x-rays to get a clearer view of hidden cavities, pus, or abscesses. Thanks to modern dental technology, we can view the results instantly and create a suitable treatment plan.

Gum Disease Screening: Our experienced dentists will look for signs of redness, bleeding, pus formation, or tenderness in the gums. We will also measure the length of gum pockets using non-invasive, pain-free techniques.

Oral Cancer Screening: Regular screening for oral cancer dramatically increases the likelihood of survival and cure. Our skilled dentists in New Westminster, BC will carefully look for abnormalities, lumps, masses, and raised patches of tissue.
