Anesthetized Oral Exam and Cleaning

On the day of the procedure, a full anesthetized oral examination is performed. Each individual tooth is probed to check for periodontal pockets and a dental chart is recorded to keep track of potential problem areas. A treatment plan is then determined in the best interest of the patient. An ultrasonic scaler is used to clean all surfaces of every tooth, both above and below the gum line. Afterwards, each individual tooth is polished.
