If you're a new patient coming to our office, first thing we do is take you in through hygiene, find out exactly what your chief complaint is. If you don't have any, we'll clean your teeth up, take some X-rays, and get a treatment plan of what you need to have done, and go from there.
Here are a few of the high-tech tools your Zanesville, OH dentist uses during your dental exams:
- DIAGNOdent cavity detectors, which use laser technology to help us detect cavities in their earliest stages before they are visible to the naked eye.
- VELscope, which helps us identify tissue abnormalities that can be an early warning sign of oral cancer or other health conditions.
- Digital X-rays, which provide accurate images more quickly and comfortably than traditional X-rays, while using a fraction of the radiation.
- Microscope Bacteria Screening, which helps us see specific bacteria like spirochetes, gliding/spinning rods, amoebas, cytophaga and more. These little creatures feed on the tissue in your mouth and can cause significant damage, so it’s important that we treat any infections quickly and completely.
In addition to oral cancer and cavities, Dr. Hawkins checks you for signs of gum disease and wear and tear that may indicate bruxism (teeth grinding) after having your dental cleanings. And because your family’s health is our top concern, our office is a latex-free environment. We’ll also check on any dental work we’ve done recently to uphold our five-year dental care guarantee.

Get Your Teeth Squeaky Clean
Keeping teeth free of bacteria-filled plaque is one of the best ways to prevent problems like cavities and gum disease. No matter how well you brush and floss at home, it’s easy to overlook some areas where bacteria collects in your mouth. But don’t worry; we get into all the nooks and crannies that you might miss. If necessary, we also supplement your dental cleaning with preventive treatments like fluoride applications or dental sealants. You’ll walk out with your teeth looking and feeling great!
Not only that, but our amenities like massage chairs and fresh-baked cookies will make you feel special every time you visit our office, including for your regular checkups. To visit a dental practice where your regular dental exams and dental cleanings are anything but routine, call Hawkins Complete Dental Service at 740-214-1301.
