Exams, Dental Cleanings, and X-Rays

We know comfort and personalized dental care is important to the families we serve. That is why, at Awesome Smiles, we do our best to make each dental appointment a positive experience for all of our patients. We use the latest modern technology and the best dental techniques combined with a gentle touch in order to deliver outstanding dental care to the people of our community.

Professional Dental Exams and X-rays

The foundation for every healthy mouth is having a periodic oral exam with your dentist. At Awesome Smiles, Dr. Kathy Nguyen will examine your teeth, gums, bite, and soft tissues to determine the level of oral health of both our kids & adult patients. She is compassionate and caring and will help teach our patients to improve the health of their teeth with improved home techniques and appropriate professional care.

A big part of successful diagnosis is the use of digital dental x-rays. Digital x-rays are high-resolution images that appear on our computer screens almost instantly once we take them. These images allow Dr. Nguyen to look for common dental conditions such as decay and infection between your teeth and below the gum line where we cannot see otherwise. Digital dental x-rays are safe and low in radiation. In fact, they emit up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional dental x-rays, and because they are so detailed, we can spot decay faster than ever – before it gets worse.

If Dr. Nguyen notices any dental conditions, she will recommend treatment to restore your health and protect your teeth for years to come.

Professional Dental Cleanings

No matter your age, you can benefit from a professional dental cleaning. It is simply impossible to reach every surface of your tooth with your toothbrush, and over time, calculus (tartar) builds up, creating a hard coating on your teeth. This calculus is a good hiding place for bacteria and can lead to periodontal (gum) disease if we don’t remove it regularly.

At Awesome Smiles, we tailor your dental cleanings to meet your needs. Whether you have regular dental cleanings or you have some catching up to do, we will thoroughly clean your teeth, and they will feel fresh and smooth when you walk out the door. We always provide gentle dental care and will help each of our patients feel completely comfortable during their dental cleanings.

Our younger patients may benefit from additional preventative care such as a fluoride treatment or dental sealants. Both treatments help to protect against cavities and promote healthy smiles.
