Oral Exams to Protect Your Smile

One of our main goals is to help you achieve a healthy smile for life. Regular checkups at KMA Dental in Kingston allow our team to not only keep an eye on your oral hygiene but also detect early signs that you might be developing an oral health condition.

By keeping track of your dental health, we aim to help you avoid complicated and expensive procedures later on.

During routine oral examinations, your dentists will look at your entire mouth. This includes a look at all of your oral structures, like your teeth and gums, as well as the function of your jaw.

If needed, our oral health professionals will use diagnostic tools to gain a more in-depth view. This can help us to see everything that is happening beneath the gumline, helping us to manage all aspects of your dental health to the best of our ability.

Oral Cancer Screening

Cancer is a disease that can develop in any part of your body, including your face and mouth. During your exam, your dentist will check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums. They will look for any of the typical signs of oral cancer and, if detected, provide you with information as well as the next steps you should take.

Keeping Your Smile Healthy at Home

Your dentists recommend brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time and flossing at least once a day. Keeping your teeth clean will help to reduce the risk of developing dental issues.

Clean Mouths Make for Happy Smiles

A clean mouth is the first step toward preventing dental health problems. Through routine professional dental cleanings, our goal is to help every patient maintain a healthy smile and protect their oral health. These dental cleanings are crucial when it comes to preventing tooth decay and maintaining optimal oral health.

To begin, your hygienist will remove any tartar and plaque buildup using specialized tools, such as a scaler. They will then use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any stains, as well as plaque that was not removed during the initial cleaning. Once the cleaning and polishing are complete, your hygienist will perform a thorough flossing, getting the hard-to-reach areas that are often missed.

Fluoride Treatment

For patients who may have an increased risk of cavities and decay, our dental team may also recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
