Dental cleanings and exams are key to keeping your mouth and smile healthy and are among the most important preventive treatments our dentists and team provide. We recommend that you visit our office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. These regular checkups allow us to monitor your oral health and provide prompt treatment for any problems that may develop. Depending on your individual needs, our dentists may recommend that you visit more frequently.
When you receive a dental cleaning and exam, we will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any plaque and tartar (calculus) from your tooth surfaces
- Floss your teeth to remove plaque from between your teeth
- Polish your teeth
- Examine your teeth and mouth for signs of decay, gum disease or other dental conditions
Our team may also take dental X-rays to check for cavities and other problems that are developing or are in areas where we cannot easily see them.
In addition to visiting our practice regularly for preventive care, we welcome you to contact us if you are experiencing pain or have a dental emergency. Our dentists and team will be happy to help you.
