Preventive Care & Cleaning

Having regular exams and cleanings is key to maintaining the best oral health possible. Visiting with the doctor every six months can help prevent dental diseases and conditions that can become hazardous to your health. Teeth Cleaning will include thorough polishing of teeth to remove any built up tartar and/or plaque, helping keep teeth and gums healthy. During a comprehensive dental checkup, Dr. Borchers will check for any problems related to oral health, such as:

  • Cavities and tooth decay: The doctor will look at tooth surfaces for decay or damage.

  • Oral cancer: Patient can expect the doctor to look for any signs of oral cancer by screening for lumps, growths, and sore areas in and around the mouth area.

  • X-rays examination: X-rays allow for a thorough look at the teeth and gums. They can detect the presence of decay, tumors, bone loss, infection, and other oral conditions.

  • Gum disease: Doctor will check for signs of Gingivitis and other periodontal (gum) disease.
