It is extremely important that you visit the dentist twice a year for routine check-ups and cleanings to ensure that any problems that might arise, like cavities and more severe problems, are prevented and taken care of before they become worse. Dr. Georgei, our Murrieta dentist, will perform an exam to look for these problems and will recommend the needed treatment to correct them.

Dental Exams

Dr. Georgei will perform a comprehensive dental exam during your initial visit at our Murrieta dental office. Regular check-ups and exams will include the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.  X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: We will check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: We will check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of existing restorations: We will check current fillings, crowns, etc.

Professional Dental Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are performed by our Registered Dental Hygienists. Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface.  Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth.  It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva.  The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums.  This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
