Professional Cleanings, Exams, and X-rays


Professional cleanings performed by a licensed dentist or hygienist are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Using specialized tools and training, your hygienist at Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS will remove:
•  Plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth. Bacteria in your mouth form plaque, which collects on teeth and causes decay, gingivitis, and gum disease
•  Tartar on teeth surfaces. (Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has become hardened on the teeth which now requires scaling for its removal)
•  Surface stains on teeth through polishing

Some patients will require a deep cleaning due to gum disease and past periodontal treatments. Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS will review your past dental history and identify any issues you may need treatment for.

Examinations
Regular examinations, by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS, help detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive and expensive procedures to repair. Dental examinations generally include the following:
•  Gum disease screening
•  Oral cancer screening
•  Visual tooth decay evaluation
•  Gum pocket measurement and tracking
•  X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums and other hidden issues

Regular examinations by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS are very important for your health. Remember, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." –Benjamin Franklin

X-rays (Radiographs)
Dental x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Your Syracuse dentist can detect issues with x-rays before they become problems, which could save you money in the long run by preventing the need for more expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect internal tooth decay, cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth), tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that are still erupting.
