Very kind, considerate, helpful people. From the front staff to the RDAs and RDHs, to Dr. Loftin himself I have always felt really cared for. Dental anything has always held a lot of anxiety and insecurity for me but this has been the best experience and has changed how I felt about going to the dentist! Definitely a forever patient so long as they will have me.

Dental Exam

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial visit to Loftin Dental. At regular check-up exams, Dr. Loftin and a hygienist will perform the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic X-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleaning (prophylaxis) are usually performed by a registered dental hygienist. Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is a hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of gum and tooth disease.
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
