Posted .

The overall health of your mouth has a direct bearing on your quality of life. Preventing and detecting oral health issues early is incredibly important for maintaining a healthy mouth. The American Dental Association recommends having a routine dental exam and cleaning performed twice a year.

Each dental checkup performed at Dr. Emanuel Amato’s clinic in Chandler, Arizona encompasses the multiple phases necessary to address all aspects of maintaining good oral health.

The first phase calls for dental hygienist to perform a thorough cleaning to remove all traces of hardened tartar and plaque from your teeth. This is followed up by a dental polishing procedure to remove minor surface stains. If you’ve been struggling with more significant stains on your teeth, you might want to ask about a dental bleaching treatment or other whitening measures.

Dr. Emanuel Amato will then examine your mouth. If there are any problems with tooth decay or early signs of gum disease, he will present you with treatment options. This might include administering a simple fluoride treatment or discussing the installation of dental sealants.

The final phase of the checkup calls for Dr. Emanuel Amato to conduct a basic oral cancer screening. This will involve an examination of your tongue, neck, cheek, and throat to detect any early signs or symptoms of oral or pharyngeal cancer.
