A consistent daily routine that includes brushing your teeth twice each day and remembering to floss between each of your teeth and along the gumline, represents an essential first step in preserving good oral health. Of course, maintaining a healthy mouth also calls for having a dentist perform a routine cleaning and dental exam twice each year.
Each of these appointments at Samuel Yee DDS INC starts with one of our dental hygienist’s cleaning and polishing your teeth to remove plaque and hardened tartar. The polishing treatment will also help to address minor dental stains.
Dr. Samuel Yee DDS will then administer a comprehensive dental exam to detect any early signs of gum disease, tooth decay or other oral health problems. If a problem area is found he will present you with an effective treatment plan.
The dental exam also includes a simple screening to detect any early signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer. It involves a basic examination of your neck, tongue, throat and other oral structures for any abnormalities like swelling, or discoloration. If you have noticed anything out of the ordinary, such as a feeling like something is stuck in the back of your throat, you should let Dr. Samuel Yee DDS know about it, so he can take a closer look.
