Dental Exams & Cleanings
What are Dental Exams & Cleanings?
A cleaning is a great way to keep your teeth looking their best by removing tartar and buildup. Exams allow us to check for cavities and other intraoral problems. Our goal is to provide you with the preventative care you need in a comfortable and relaxed environment. It is important that each member of your family come into the office every six months for a cleaning and exam.
Why are Dental Exams & Cleanings needed?
If you continually forgo visits to the dentist, you are only doing your smile a disservice. Small problems can get much worse, requiring more invasive treatment. Exams and cleanings are a great way to keep your teeth healthy and to prevent issues like tooth decay and gum disease from developing. Regardless of the quality of the products you use at home, you still need to have professional cleanings done often.
Who is a candidate for Dental Exams & Cleanings?
Everyone is a good candidate for an exam and cleaning. It is never too early to get your kids in for their first appointment. Likewise, it’s never too late to take care of your smile. Regardless of how long it’s been since your last appointment, we welcome you into our office to begin the treatment that you need.
What happens during Dental Exams & Cleanings?
To begin the appointment, our licensed hygienist is going to clean your teeth using special instruments. These instruments will remove tartar and other stains from the teeth. The gums are checked for signs of gum disease so that treatment can be started if it is found. Our doctor will then come into the office to perform the exam. We will make notes if any cavities and other problems are found during the course of the exam. The entire appointment takes less than an hour in our office.
