Cleanings, Exams, and Dental X-Rays

Professional cleanings performed by the best dentist in Paducah, KY are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Using specialized tools and training, your hygienist at Woodyard Dental Care will:

Remove plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth.

Bacteria in the mouth form plaque, which collects on teeth and causes decay, gum disease, and gingivitis.

Remove tartar from teeth surfaces.

Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has become so hardened on the teeth that its removal requires special procedures.

Tartar below the gum line is also an indication of gum disease.

Remove surface stains from teeth through polishing.

Some patients will require a deep cleaning due to gum disease and past periodontal treatments. Dr. Jonathan Woodyard will review your past dental history and identify any issues you may need treatment for.

Dental Examinations

Regular examinations, by Dr. Jonathan Woodyard, help detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Dental examinations generally include the following:

  • Gum disease screening

  • Oral cancer screening

  • Visual tooth decay evaluation

  • Gum pocket measurement and tracking

  • X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums and other hidden issues

Regular examinations by Dr. Jonathan Woodyard are very important for your health. Remember, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." –Benjamin Franklin

X-RAYS (RADIOGRAPHS)

Dental x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Your Paducah, KY dentist can detect issues with x-rays before they become problems, saving you money in the long run by preventing the need for more expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect internal tooth decay, cysts (fluid filled
sacks at the base of your teeth), tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that are still coming in.

Dr. Woodyard has been my general dentist for more than 10 years and he’s always been so concerned and professional. He is up to date on all the newest innovative treatments. He has done several crowns for me and I was able to get it all done in one day since they were made with the latest technology in house by Dr. Woodyard. I would highly recommend him for all dental needs.

Best dentist I've been to! Very professional operation in all respects. Love that Dr. Woodyard does the majority of usual procedures right in house -- including crowns and root canals. Getting a crown in one visit is truly amazing. Mary is a wonderful hygienist with a solid knowledge of her area of expertise. You won't be disappointed!
