Exams & Cleanings in Denver

Healthy teeth require a commitment on your part, but the reward is a beautiful smile that helps you feel good about the way you look. Two of the most beneficial things you can do to care for your oral health is regular exams with Dr. Litvak or Dr. Woller, and dental cleanings with our hygienist. These treatments, used in combination with other preventive methods, are your best defense against developing serious dental problems like periodontal disease.

Every day we are learning more about the importance of maintaining a healthy mouth to promote your general health and wellbeing. Recent research has established a link between the health of your mouth and your total wellness, known as the oral-systemic link. It’s vitally important to prevent and control oral disease as we learn more about the effects it has on your body.

Ongoing studies have looked at the link between chronic oral disease and an increased risk of developing heart disease, respiratory disorders, stroke, and other serious health problems. We offer preventive treatments are designed to improve your general health and oral wellness, leaving your smile healthier than when we started.

Dental Exams at our Cherry Creek Dentist Office

Seeing you for routine dental exams give us an opportunity to evaluate the current state of your oral health. In addition to your teeth, during your exam, we focus on the entire oral cavity to look for problems that may be developing, like the onset of gum disease. We also evaluate your smile for problems with your dental bite and even early signs of oral cancer.

If you’re a new patient, Dr. Litvak, Dr. Woller, and our team will take the opportunity during your first visit to talk to you about your long-term expectations for a healthy mouth. As we get to know you, we’ll learn about your priorities and how we can help you achieve your goals in a way that makes sense for you.

After we spend some time talking with you, we’ll perform a visual exam, which includes an oral cancer screening. During the screening, our 80246 dentists will look for signs of any cancer or precancerous abnormalities in your mouth. The goal of oral cancer screenings is to detect cancer at its early stages when removal of affected tissue is easier and the disease is more likely to be cured.

We’ll check your dental bite for malocclusion and note the condition of any existing dental work. Digital radiographs (x-rays) help us see if any problems are developing deep inside your teeth. Our dentists in Denver, CO will take all these details into account to develop a long-term comprehensive treatment plan. At your second visit, we’ll review our findings with you and map out a long-term treatment plan. We’ll discuss your concerns and help you establish a timetable for treatment that fits your budget and lifestyle.

Your best defense against gum disease and other related oral health problems is routine professional dental cleanings with a skilled hygienist. Even if you are an oral hygiene superstar, routine cleanings with a hygienist are still needed to ensure that your teeth are as clean as they need to be to stay healthy.

As part of your cleaning, we may also recommend one or both of the following procedures:

Fluoride treatments are an effective tool for strengthening teeth and helping to maintain oral health, and routine exams help us determine if we should add fluoride treatments to your preventive dental care.

Sealants are a thin coating of protective plastic that’s applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth with deep grooves. Smoothing over these surfaces makes them easier to clean and reduces the risk of decay.

Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to put off these basic treatments, especially when you’re busy and your teeth feel okay. But avoiding these important procedures can allow decay and gum disease to significantly damage your smile before you even know it exists.
