Your Dental Exam

At Smile Source Spokane Valley, we begin every preventive care appointment with a dental cleaning and examination. This allows us to get to know the patient and create a treatment plan that is specific to them. Preventive care is administered on an individual basis, and we always take your budgeting needs into consideration when planning out treatment for you. With the help of a complete consultation, we can get a feel for what your smile needs to look and feel its absolute best.

Dental Cleanings

Even with the best brushing habits, you can still benefit from a professional cleaning. Exams are just as necessary, since they can alert us of minor problems so that treatment is both easier and more effective. Cleanings help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay when done regularly. It's never too late to start taking better care of your smile with routine preventative treatment.

Keeping your teeth healthy and clean requires more than diligent brushing and flossing at home. In many cases, plaque will build upon different areas of the teeth, hardening into a chalky white substance known as tartar. The only safe way to remove tartar buildup is with a professional cleaning performed by a registered hygienist. Exams are necessary as well, since they give us a view of your dental and oral health to prevent issues from getting worse.

How often should you schedule Dental Exams & Cleanings?

At Smile Source Spokane Valley, we recommend visiting our office once every six months to keep up with your dental health. If you have children, try to get them in for their first appointment as soon as possible. If it's been a long time since your last cleaning, it's never too late to start loving your smile. We offer care in a judgement-free and relaxed manner.

The appointment will begin with a professional cleaning. This is performed by a licensed registered dental hygienist who uses special instruments to clear away heavy tartar buildup and surface stains. Your teeth are then polished and carefully flossed before the gums are checked for signs of inflammation or infection. Once the cleaning has been completed, we come in to perform the exam. The exam allows us to check for signs of tooth decay, loose or broken restorations and even oral cancer. To make your future appointments easier, we'll pre-schedule them before you leave the office.

Strengthening Mineral Treatment

Our strengthening mineral treatments are designed to protect and strengthen a patient's teeth, making them less susceptible to cavities. Regardless of the amount of fluoride that you use each day, we offer professional treatments that can add further protection for your smile. Fluoride treatments are great for adult and pediatric patients alike.

For your advanced mineral treatment, a liquid fluoride is brushed over the teeth. You will be instructed on how to care for your teeth after treatment, which may include avoiding eating and drinking for about an hour to allow the treatment to fully penetrate the teeth for optimal smile protection!

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, clear protective coverings that can be applied to the back teeth. They are meant to prevent cavities and deep staining that would otherwise occur if they weren't in place. The beauty about sealants is that they're ideal both for pediatric patients and adult patients. Most sealants have the ability to last for up to three years before they'll naturally wear away.

Patients whose back teeth have grooves, deep fissures and pitting often benefit from dental sealants. Because deep grooves in the back of the mouth can sometimes make it difficult to keep the teeth clean and  Likewise, these areas can become deeply stained over time and be more susceptible to tooth decay. Both children and adults can benefit from having sealants placed.

Dentistry for Kids

Smiles of all ages are welcome at Smile Source Spokane Valley! It's important to bring your child to see the dentist once every six months. Their six month checkup appointment allows our dental team to examine their teeth and provide them with a thorough dental cleaning, banish buildup on the teeth, and assess health of their gums. A pediatric dental exam allows us to check for signs of cavities and other problems that might get worse if left untreated.

At Smile Source Spokane, we provide a range of important procedures that are geared to improving and maintaining the health of your child's smile. Your child will establish themselves in our office with an exam and cleaning. From there, we can create a personalized treatment plan specific to them if additional dental treatments are needed, including dental sealants, fillings, extractions, crowns, and more.
