Checkups and Cleanings

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

Your at-home oral hygiene routine provides the foundation for clean and healthy teeth and gums. However, alone it is insufficient to fully prevent oral health issues such as gum disease and tooth decay. This is why maintaining biannual checkups and cleanings is so very important for the long-term health of your smile.

If you are overdue for a dental checkup, please contact Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory G. Miyake online or by calling 559-224-0103 today to schedule your next appointment.

Professional Services

Your regularly scheduled appointments begin with a professional tooth cleaning and polishing. This allows your hygienist to completely remove plaque and tartar from all surfaces of your teeth – even below the gum line. It also removes surface stains to ensure your smile is bright and beautiful year round.

Following professional cleanings, Dr. Miyake performs a complete examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. This examination allows Dr. Miyake to spot common dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer, enabling us to provide treatments that can prevent small issues from becoming serious problems. When needed, Dr. Miyake will use digital x-rays and other diagnostic tools to help ensure detection of issues that cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Jaw examinations allow Dr. Miyake to evaluate proper alignment and to detect neuromuscular dental problems like TMJ. When detected early, we can provide treatments even before the discomfort of a misaligned jaw begin, helping preserve both the comfort and strength of your bite. Cosmetic dental concerns can also be discussed during these visits to help ensure your smile is radiant and beautiful as well as healthy and strong.
