Dental Exams and Cleanings
At Kalaheo Dental Group, we care for every aspect of your smile so you can enjoy excellent oral health for the rest of your life. Caring for your smile is an investment in your overall wellness and quality of life.
Many people say the mouth is the window to the body, meaning oral health is integral to whole-body health. Dr. Michael Lutwin, Dr. Kellian Rita, and Dr. Robert Stebbins offer preventive dental care, such as cleanings and exams, to ensure your smile stays healthy and disease-free for many years to come.
Preventing Problems Before They Start
Your oral health is precious, and we strive to provide the most personalized dental care possible using state-of-the-art technologies and comforts.
We offer the following at our Kalaheo, HI dental office:
Comprehensive dental exams allow us to monitor your mouth and identify any changes to your oral health. During your exam, we thoroughly inspect your teeth and gums for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other health concerns. We may also take digital dental x-rays to see what’s happening below the surface of your smile. These images provide us with the information we need to create detailed treatment plans to care for your teeth and gums.
Professional Teeth Cleanings
Your dental hygienist begins this process by exploring the surfaces of your teeth and identifying any areas of concern. We look for cavities and examine the quality of any existing restorations, such as fillings or crowns. Next, we perform a periodontal (gum) exam to ensure that your gums are healthy and that there are no signs of periodontal disease or bone loss.
Your hygienist carefully cleans the surfaces of each tooth, removing the hard mineral buildup of plaque and tartar from your teeth. After eliminating these substances, we floss and polish your teeth and finish off by applying fluoride to protect your smile against cavities.
Our cleanings are very gentle and thorough, and we always do whatever we can to ensure you have a pleasant and positive experience. If you have anxiety about your dental exam, please let us know to accommodate your needs and comfort level. Our patients are our ohana, and we always want to make sure you feel safe and “at home” at our dental office.
Personalized Treatments for a Healthier, Happier Ohana
If we discover any signs of tooth decay or gum disease, we’ll speak with you about your oral hygiene routine and ways to reduce your risk. This may mean changing your flossing and brushing habits, or we may recommend other dental treatments.
Practicing excellent oral hygiene and receiving professional dental exams and cleanings are essential to your oral health and wellness. Our team at Kalaheo Dental Group is here to guide and support you every step of the way, so your ohana can have healthy, happy smiles for life.
