Every six months, we recommend that you come in for a routine dental exam and teeth cleaning in San Juan Capistrano, California. Our dentist or hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing all plaque and tartar. Then Dr. Scott G. Lamming will perform a comprehensive exam. All of your teeth and gums will be inspected for tooth decay, gum disease, or other damaging conditions. Our staff will take X-rays of your mouth and those will be studied for signs of decay or other problems as well. This exam is important, as it allows our dentist to determine in what areas your oral health can be improved. Dr. Scott G. Lamming will then discuss a plan of action with you to remedy any problems that were detected.
