The dental exams and cleanings by dental offices are done to address every component of your oral health and help you enjoy your smile for a lifetime. We begin with a professional dental cleaning performed by our highly trained dental team, followed by a thorough dental exam on behalf of our dentist.
During your regular dental cleaning, our team will screen for signs of tooth decay and gum disease, and will note any vulnerable areas for the dentist to look into. At the end of the process, we will also polish your teeth to remove any surface stains and help your smile stay radiant. If you have any significant tooth enamel stains, you are welcome to ask us about your options for teeth whitening.
When Dr. Lonnie Anderson performs a thorough examination of your smile, he pays special attention to any vulnerable areas noted by our team. If he is concerned about your tooth enamel quality, he might recommend fluoride treatment. If you suffer any issues such as cavities or gum disease, we will explain your options for treatment. At the end of the checkup, our dentist will screen for signs of oral cancer, examining your tongue, mouth, and neck.
If you are due for your next dental checkup in Juneau, Alaska, we invite you to call Lonnie A. Anderson, DDS at 907-789-2066 and schedule a visit as soon as you can.
