Dental Checkups at Modern Dental at Flying Horse
Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential to good dental health. Visiting the dentist every 6 months can help keep your teeth looking their best and ensure you won’t have a dental emergency later down the line.
During the appointment, your hygienist will give you a professional teeth cleaning and polishing which gets rid of stubborn plaque and tartar and refreshes your mouth. Your dentist will also check for potential issues like cavities, decay, and other dental problems like gingivitis.

Cavity Treatment & Prevention
The best cavity treatment is prevention. That’s why our dental team is dedicated to helping our patients avoid them altogether if possible and stopping existing ones from getting bigger. However, if your dental techniques and routine were lacking in the past, you may still need treatment for an existing cavity.
Typically, cavities are treated with fillings due to their effectiveness and immediate benefits. For bigger cavities, other treatments may be recommended. We try to make the procedure as painless and comfortable as possible by numbing the area surrounding the tooth. Your dentist will then remove the decayed part of the tooth and fill it back in. And you’re done!
Oral Cancer Screenings
At your checkup, you have the option of receiving an oral cancer screening. Your dentist will examine the inside of your mouth, as well as your throat and neck for any characteristic signs of oral cancer. The earlier oral cancer is detected, the higher the chances are of a full recovery, so we highly recommend you take advantage of the exam.
