Dental Cleanings

At Yam Dental, our dentists in Newmarket recommend regular visit to our dental hygienists. These visits are your best defense against gum disease and other dental problems. Our hygienists clean your teeth gently and thoroughly to make sure all the plaque and tartar, even in hard to reach areas, are removed. For more information on dental cleanings, please see Prevention of Gum Disease. At the end of the cleanings, the hygienists polish all the stains off your teeth, and you can choose if you would like a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth against cavities.

Dental Examinations

Our office recommends complete oral examination for your initial visit. During this visit, we document the condition of your teeth and your oral tissues. We also check your jaw to detect any problems with your bite. Digital x-rays may be taken after assessing your individual needs. Should you need dental treatments after we complete the examination, we will discuss with you what treatments are needed, and our administration team will advise you the cost of the treatments. If you have a dental plan, an estimate will be submitted to your insurance company for pre-determination of benefits.
