Regular Dental Exams,
Prevention & Cleanings

Dr. Lim and staff are committed to preserving your natural smile through gentle and focused preventative dental work. Your preventative program is designed to fight new cavities, preserve restored teeth and manage periodontal disease.

Routine Dental Examinations

More than a “check-up”, a healthy mouth plays an important role in our overall health and well-being. It functions in speech, the ability to chew nutritious foods, and is the gateway to the rest of our body. Prevention and early detection are the cornerstones of good dental health.

During a dental exam Dr. Lim is inspecting a number of areas and functions of your mouth to identify any early signs of dental disease in order to prevent small problems from becoming more serious. Through regular dental exams, we can detect any problems early to achieve good oral health.

Dental emergencies can be a stressful and painful event, especially if it occurs when dental offices are closed. Our office has a 24/7 dental emergency pager that you can call.

Dental X-rays

The use of teeth X-rays is determined on a case-by-case basis. Dr. Lim will work with you to review your oral health and assess the potential benefit of obtaining an X-ray to support your care. During your dental exam we can discuss X-Ray details including benefits, frequency and cost.

Teeth Scaling and Root Planning

Removal of dental plaque and calculus from teeth is crucial to prevent cavities and gum disease. Severe gum disease causes at least one third of tooth loss in adults. It is recommended that teeth be cleaned at least twice a year.

Fluoride and Sealants

Fluoride has a positive effect on oral health by making teeth more resistant to decay. Fluoride can also prevent or even reverse tooth decay that has started.

Fissure sealants is applied over grooves in chewing surfaces of back teeth, it blocks food being trapped and halts the decay process.
