Professional Dental Exams and Cleaning Services in Surrey

Do you want a dentist to make an early diagnosis and prevent you from undergoing an expensive treatment in the future? Dr. Chahal at Opal Dental in the Surrey does extensive dental exams and cleaning for every new patient. During these exams, our dentist assesses the anatomy of your teeth, jaws, face, gums, and tissues to identify any risk factor for your long-term oral health.

Regular Dental Check-Up

Our hygienists also do a regular check-up including:

  • Diagnostic X-rays: to find decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, and tooth positions. In our office, we use digital X-rays as a preventative, diagnostic tool that allows us to see abscesses, bone loss, decay, developmental abnormalities and problems inside a tooth or below a gum line. Digital X-rays emit a lower level of radiation than traditional X-rays.
  • Oral cancer screening: to check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: to check your gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
  • Examination of tooth surfaces: to check for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of existing restorations: to check your fillings, crowns, veneers, and more.

Dental Cleanings

Our hygienists do professional dental cleaning including scaling, root planing, and polishing. Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam by Dr. Chahal and:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has formed on the tooth and remains firmly attached. Calculus forms above and below the gum line, and can be removed with appropriate 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 that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease and can affect your general health.
  • Teeth polishing: remove stains and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
