Dental Exams And Cleanings

Keeping your teeth and mouth healthy will both prevent tooth decay and other oral problems and contribute to the health of the rest of your body. Brushing and flossing regularly is essential, but it’s also important to visit your dentist for a thorough examination and professional cleaning every six months.

Routine exams and cleanings can help you:

  • Avoid expensive dental procedures
  • Prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease
  • Reduce or eliminate the stains from food or drinks on your teeth
  • Spend less time in our offices overall
  • Keep your smile happy and healthy for a lifetime

While you’re in our office, we’ll take a close look at your teeth and gums, checking them for any problems, such as signs of gum disease or tooth decay. We’ll most likely take a few X-rays as well to get a look at what’s going on under the surface. Without X-rays, we wouldn’t be able to detect many dental problems until it’s too late to deal with them effectively.

We’ll also give your teeth a thorough cleaning. Your dental hygienist will take a look at your teeth to check for cavities and to make sure any dental work you’ve previously received is holding up well. Then we’ll start the cleaning process, using a wide variety of tools to get at plaque and tartar that you wouldn’t be able to remove on your own. We’ll also floss and polish your teeth, and we may even apply a special fluoride to help prevent cavities. There’s no need to feel anxious, but if you’re nervous, let us know, and we can provide you with sedation to make you more comfortable. If we find any problems with your teeth or gums, we’ll let you know and discuss treatment options with you.

Our Happy Patients

"When it comes to going to the dentist I'm not going to lie, I get anxiety. But as soon as I walked in everyone was so nice, to the girl who took my xrays, to Cyndi who cleaned my teeth, and to the dentist. They made me feel comfortable which was a big plus! Big thanks to Cyndi for being so patient with me, especially being the last person to be seen today. She explained my plan in detail to make sure I understood everything. Definitely would recommend this place!"
