Experience a Gentle But Thorough Cleaning With Our Special Technique

At your checkup, we’ll review your dental history so we have the full picture of your oral health. Then we’ll perform a complete dental exam, including using an electronic cavity detector to catch small traces of tooth decay. Your exam will also include an oral cancer screening and head and neck exam.

If we find any problems during your exam, or if we feel that you could benefit from other services, we’ll make recommendations accordingly. Some patients need fluoride treatment or dental sealants to help prevent cavities and keep their teeth healthy.

As for your teeth cleaning, we’re proud to say that Dr. Memar is certified in the innovative Guided Biofilm Therapy system. Since a cleaning is the service you’ll likely get from us most often, we make it as comfortable as possible. This technique uses a color discloser to turn biofilm on your teeth a purple color. Afterward, we will use AIRFLOW® MAX technology to gently remove the biofilm from your teeth, gums, and tongue. This system is easier on your mouth than traditional scaling techniques that are usually used for a teeth cleaning. Plus, you’ll leave with that fresh-from-the-dentist feeling that only a professional cleaning will give you.

To schedule your dental cleanings and exams in Richmond, call Dental Garden today at 281-853-9215. We’ll make sure you leave here with a sparkling smile!

Guided Biofilm Therapy

It is scientifically proven that the regular and complete removal of biofilm results in healthier teeth and gums. With Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) we are able to make the biofilm visible to ensure you are getting the most thorough cleaning at your visit. Using innovative technologies we are then able to remove the biofilm completely in a minimally invasive and pain-free manner.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment is the use of concentrated light to reduce bacterial levels within the infected gum tissue following a dental cleaning. It is used to decontaminate the infected periodontal pocket. Most laser procedures can be done without causing discomfort or trauma and involve little or no anesthesia.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

For most of our patients, a dental exam and cleaning will take about an hour. We’ll begin by asking you about any problems and possibly taking a set of X-rays. Your dental hygienist will then look over your mouth and perform a thorough teeth cleaning. Finally, your dentist will perform a complete dental exam and make any recommendations needed for a healthy smile.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

There’s no reason to wait to eat after your cleaning. However, your teeth and gums may be a little sensitive. So, you may want to avoid extremely hot, cold, or acidic food and beverages for a few hours. Be sure to ask your dentist if you have any concerns about what you can eat or drink after your appointment.

Why should I get a dental exam if I’m not in pain?

If you wait until you are in pain, you already have a serious problem. On top of that, not all dental problems cause pain. By getting regular exams, you get the benefit of having dental professionals look at your mouth. We can identify potential problems or catch them in the early stages. That allows us to fix them before you may need expensive and invasive treatments.
