At Hawkins Complete Dental Service, we don’t “save” our leading-edge dental technology for complex procedures. Dr. Charles Hawkins delivers great care by also using it for general dentistry services like dental cleanings and exams in Zanesville.
Here is some of the technology we use 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 crisp 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). 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 work guarantee.
To schedule your dental exams and dental cleanings, call us at 740-214-1301 today.
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. But don’t worry; we get into all the nooks and crannies you miss. If necessary, we will 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 will make you feel special every time you visit our office, including for your regular checkups.
