Get a Dental Physical & Be Proactive About Your Oral Health

We emphasize biologic dentistry because we understand the importance of your oral health to the health of your whole body. When you come to our office, ask for a dental physical. You will experience a thorough evaluation of your overall health, including insightful tests you won’t find at most practices:

  • Cavity Inspection – By using the DIAGNOdent laser detection system, we can identify decay much earlier than we can with our eyes alone.
  • Oral Cancer Screening – Periodontal problems and decay aren’t the only risks to your oral and overall health. The VELscope Enhanced Oral Assessment System reveals any irregularities that could indicate the early signs of oral cancer.
  • A1C Test – By measuring your average blood glucose level, we can assess your likelihood of diabetes, a risk factor for gum disease and other health problems.
  • HRV Test – The heart rate variability test is an indicator of your overall health.
  • Oral Bacterial Test – Since we want to identify any potential problems as soon as possible, we use a microscope to check a gum sample for signs of gum disease. We follow up with testing by an outside lab. This can help personalize treatment for dry mouth and bad breath, too.
  • Additional Testing – We offer many other tests to help you better understand how your body is operating and how that affects your overall health. This includes but is not limited to testing your thyroid, adrenals, stomach acid, vitamin D, nitric oxide, or PH levels.

We then do a thorough dental exam along with take digital X-rays to create a path to wellness uniquely for you.

We recommend you take a moment to complete this tooth decay risk assessment. Then, call Synergy Dental Center at 307 228 7117 or schedule online to make an appointment for your dental cleanings and exams in Gillette.

Commonly Asked Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

The time needed for these services will vary depending on several factors, including whether we’ve seen you before and what shape your smile is in. Typically, though, it won’t require more than an hour. It will be time well spent, as your teeth will look great, and we’ll care for your oral health while also paying attention to your overall health.

Why should I get a dental exam if I’m not in pain?

If you wait until you are in pain, you already have a severe problem. On top of that, not all dental problems cause pain. By getting regular exams, you benefit from having holistic dental professionals look at your mouth and how it’s affecting your overall health. We can identify potential problems or catch them in the earliest stages. That allows us to fix them before you may need expensive and invasive treatments.

What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

We care about you and your long-term overall health. Therefore, we are a fluoride-free office and only use biocompatible, natural, and organic materials. Your dental hygienist will inspect your teeth and gums for any problems. We may also take a set of X-rays, depending on your needs. Then we will clean and polish each of your teeth until they shine. Your dentist will come in later and perform a complete dental exam, paying particular attention to any problem areas noted by your hygienist. Finally, we’ll recommend any needed treatments to improve your oral health.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

To keep your teeth and gums in the best possible shape, we recommend visiting our office every six months for dental cleanings and exams. This allows our team to remove bacteria-filled plaque before it can cause any serious problems. It also enables us to find issues like cavities and gum disease in their earliest stages, when they are easiest to treat.
