Cleaning & Prevention

During your first visit, Dr. Lindeman will conduct a comprehensive dental exam including appropriate x-rays and photos.  Then, at regular check-up exams, Dr. Lindeman works with your hygienist to evaluate your current dental health. Each check-up exam will include the following services:

  • Professional dental cleaning: Our registered dental hygienists will remove calculus or tartar as well as plaque, followed by teeth polishing to remove stains and any remaining plaque.
  • Examination of tooth decay: A thorough check of all tooth surfaces will be conducted using specialized, sterile dental instruments.
  • State-of-the-art diagnostic digital x-rays or low radiation x-ray: Our office uses the latest diagnostic technology to detect decay, tumors, bone loss and other areas of concern.  Our advanced digital X-rays not only provide significantly less radiation they also help assess tooth and root positions and health.
  • Oral cancer screening: Dr. Lindeman and our registered dental hygienists and staff have undergone special training to screen your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums looking for any signs of cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: We carefully examine your gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of inflammation or bone loss.
  • Examination of existing restorations: For patients with restorations, we always evaluate current fillings, crowns and other types of dental restorations to ensure their integrity and comfort.
