Cleaning & Prevention
Exams, Cleaning, & X-Rays
We advise healthy patients to visit our team once every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. Regular cleanings are the best way to prevent gum disease, which is caused by built-up tartar and plaque. Tartar and plaque can only be removed through a professional cleaning.
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic, yet important preventive treatments we provide. Six-month checkups include a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to keep your smile healthy. During your appointment, our dental team will clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar, as both can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease; floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile; and, examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases.
We utilize dental X-rays to evaluate your smile and make certain that you receive the proper dental care. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
While we highly recommend cleanings every six months, our dentists may suggest more frequent visits if needed. We also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain, or injury or have any questions about the benefits of a routine dental exam and teeth cleaning.
