Regular Checkups in Newnan

Anyone who is serious about keeping their teeth healthy should know that regular checkups provide major benefits that simply cannot be achieved with at-home dental care alone. We recommend that patients visit our practice at least once every six months for regular checkups so that our experts can stay on top of their oral health. Making these visits regularly gives our dentists the best chance of detecting any new or developing issues before they become major problems. We also provide a thorough cleaning that will present the patient with a clean sensation of freshness that will last for many months to come. Our regular checkups are quick and easy, and they provide a patient with a complete assessment of their current oral health. Smiles of Newnan is proud to offer the best regular checkups in Newnan, Georgia.

During a regular checkup, we can assess the patient’s teeth and gums and to create a personalized treatment plan that will help them improve their oral health. Our staff may recommend follow-up appointments, such as fillings, root canal treatment or periodontal services. Our regular checkups include a professional cleaning, a full examination, digital or traditional X-rays if necessary, an oral cancer screening and cavity detection using DiagnoDent Technology. Overall, these visits are a crucial step in achieving and maintaining strong, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.

Professional Cleaning

The goal of a professional cleaning to reach oral areas that cannot be accessed with regular brushing and flossing. Our hygienists scrape away at any plaque, tartar and bacteria. We make sure to use a gentle touch so that the patient stays comfortable. The teeth are then thoroughly cleansed and polished to eliminate surface stains, while also providing the patient with a pleasant sensation of fresh breath. This process is highly effective in cleaning the teeth and presenting the patient with the best opportunity to maintain their oral health.

Full Examination

A very important part of a complete checkup is to obtain a proper assessment of the patient’s current dental health. We do this with a full examination. Our experts know exactly what to look for, and we can spot any signs of cavities, tooth decay or possible gum disease. Based on our findings, we can create a personalized treatment plan if necessary.

X-Rays

We offer both digital and traditional X-rays. Not every dental condition or problem is visible on the surface. We need special tools and equipment to look out for issues that exist below. A major advantage of digital X-rays is that the images can be uploaded to a monitor for easy viewing. This way, we can quickly share any notable findings. We catch many problems and conditions using X-rays including tooth decay, gum disease, jawbone deterioration, cysts, oral cancer and more.

Oral Cancer Screening

It is impossible to tell if a person will develop oral cancer. The condition is very serious, and the patient has the best chance of receiving successful treatment if the disease is detected early on. That is why we take the time to conduct an oral cancer screening during every regular checkup. Our dental team knows exactly what to look for, and we can quickly spot any signs or symptoms that could suggest oral cancer. The screening involves us checking the patient’s face, tongue, throat, gums and other soft oral tissues.

DiagnoDent

DiagnoDent is an advanced technology that is used to check teeth for cavities, decay and deterioration. The DIAGNOdent™ pen can quickly and easily show us where the decay lies. The laser fluorescence detector within DIAGNOdent is a precise method for identifying both cavities and periodontitis.

Love my smile by Dr. Clifton! It’s been over 15 years and everyone compliments my beautiful smile and teeth. 18 DaVinci veneers were my best option and Dr. Clifton helped me make the correct choice for a long lasting smile.
