Dental Checkups in Costa Mesa

Regular six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings are the best way to safeguard your smile from common issues like cavities and gingivitis. Without a regular checkup from Brite Clean Smiles, you’re putting your teeth and gums at risk. During routine checkups, Dr. Girgis will perform a comprehensive oral exam and ensure that your teeth are in great shape. If any issues require further treatment, he’ll offer honest guidance and all the information you’ll need to make the best decision for your dental health.

Thorough Care for Healthy Smiles

We offer comprehensive oral exams and teeth cleanings. A  regular checkup will typically include:

  • Teeth cleaning and polishing – Our dental hygienists will use professional-grade tools to clean, buff, and polish your teeth.
  • Medical history updates – We’ll update your charts with information about new health issues or medications.
  • X-rays (yearly) – We’ll take yearly x-rays to ensure that your teeth are free from decay and infections, and thoroughly check for other oral health issues.
  • Gum disease assessment – Your gums will be examined for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Clinical exam – Your oral hygienist and Dr. Girgis will conduct comprehensive clinical exams to assess the health of your mouth and gums and the integrity of any dental work, such as crowns or fillings.
  • Oral cancer screening –  Dr. Girgis will examine your mouth for lesions or any other potential indicators that oral cancer may be present.

Depending on your oral health, we may opt to provide other services, such as periodontal cleanings and maintenance.

How Often Do I Need A Dental Checkup?

You should come in for a checkup every six months, without fail. By keeping up with these appointments, Dr. Girgis and the team at Brite Clean Smiles can ensure that any potential issues are caught before they become more severe and costly. If you skip your oral checkups and cleanings, you are putting your oral health at risk. Even if you take great care of your teeth, tooth decay or an infection can still be present. Many patients are completely unaware of common oral issues until it’s too late.
