Cleaning and Preventive Care

What You Can Expect from Dentist in Dodge City

Your experienced dentist in Dodge City will perform a comprehensive dental exam at your initial dental visit.

Your dentist and hygienist will include the following at all regular check-up exams:

  • Dental Radiographs: X-rays provide early detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss that cannot be seen in a visual exam. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Tooth Decay Exam: In addition to your x-rays, all tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special new state-of-the-art decay detection instruments.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Your dentist and hygienist will check the gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, bridges and other dental work for fit, leakage, or unusual wear.
  • Oral cancer screening: Your dentist will check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

DIAGNOdent

The surest way to detect cavities

Dental patients place value on healthy and attractive teeth. In order to maintain them, the earliest possible care is essential.

DIAGNOdent helps Dr. Stein with early detection. Even the smallest lesions are detected at the earliest stage, enabling us to protect and preserve the tooth substance.

Dexis CariVu

The Dexis CariVu is a laser diagnostic tool used at Stein Dental. It is used for caries detection as well as other lesions such as cracks in the tooth. Early detection is important for treatment and overall health of the tooth.

Intraoral Camera

Maybe if you could actually see those old fillings yourself, you'd feel a lot better about having them fixed. Here's where an intraoral camera is just the ticket!

An intraoral camera is about the size of a pen, so it fits easily into your mouth. Once positioned, it sends pictures to a monitor, where your teeth and gums appear in a full-color, usually as a very large image. Want a copy of the image? We can print one for you.
