Dental health comes down to routine, and we hope you’ll consider Kemp Dental a part of you and your family’s health routine. Whether it’s a routine exam, cleaning, or something a bit more serious, we are grateful that you’ve chosen us to be a part of the process.
ROUTINE DENTAL CHECKUPS & CLEANINGS
At your appointment, you will receive a thorough exam assessing your overall oral health. X-rays may be taken to diagnose hidden decay and excess tartar, plaque, and stains will be removed. We use an iTero scanner which digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. Finally, your teeth will be polished giving you a bright, fresh smile.
Periodontal therapy is required when bacteria in the plaque attack your gum tissue causing it to become inflamed and detach from the tooth. During periodontal therapy, your hygienist will remove plaque and build-up, promoting healthy gums and teeth, and then finish with polishing.
If decay is found in one or more of your teeth, it is very important the decay is removed and the space is filled to retain the health and structure of the tooth. We offer “tooth-colored” fillings made from a sturdy composite material to do just that. We will match the shade of your natural tooth so there is no obvious difference between your natural tooth and your filling.
ORAL CANCER SCREENING
During an Oral Cancer Screening, we look over your gums, lips, and the inside of your cheeks for any abnormal sores or areas that may require additional care.
