At Smiles for Life Dental Clinic in Bloomington, MN, we strongly believe that good dental health is crucial to your overall health and that an attractive smile is great for your self confidence! For both of these reasons, Smiles For Life is dedicated to the preventive care required to maintain your mouth in the best condition possible!
Naturally, the best way to make sure that you get the best preventive dental care is to schedule a routine cleaning and exam. A basic cleaning goes a long way toward maintaining your dental health by removing tartar and plaque and preventing periodontal disease. A routine cleaning will also help to maintain your appearance by removing discoloring deposits so that you can have a brighter smile!
Cutting Edge Dental Technology
At Smiles For Life in Bloomington, MN, we have also integrated leading edge technology into our routine dental exams. Our dental exams begin with a visual examination of your mouth where we look for cavities, periodontitis, lesions in the tissue of your mouth or gums, and anything else that appears abnormal. In addition to a normal visual exam, we look for things that are more difficult to spot with the unaided eye by taking digital X-rays and performing an oral cancer screening.
The X-ray part of the examination is accomplished with the help of our Digital Dental X-ray system. Much like your digital camera, the images taken by the Digital X-ray system can be displayed instantly on a computer screen! This allows us to make a quicker and more accurate diagnosis. Plus, it uses only half the radiation of old fashioned film X-rays, so it’s safer for you too!
With the help of our fluorescent oral cancer light we will be able to spot oral cancer at a much earlier stage than is possible with a conventional visual exam. This is great news because oral cancer is much easier to treat in its earlier stages!
