Improve Your Smile With Dental Cleanings & Dental Exams

Dental cleanings and exams are very simple yet important aspects of our office’s general dentistry services. These no-fuss procedures include:

  • Having digital X-rays taken of your smile, which are safer than traditional X-rays and ensure we see exactly what’s happening with each of your teeth
  • An oral cancer screening
  • A swift yet thorough dental cleaning to rid your teeth of plaque and tartar that over-the-counter products just can’t remove
  • Fluoride treatments or fluoride varnish to fight bacteria that cause tooth decay
  • Nutritional counseling to benefit your smile’s health and your diet

While you’re here, we may also recommend dental sealants to further shield your teeth from decay. Sealants will save you time and money spent on tooth fillings to repair cavities. If we notice any irregularities in your smile after reviewing your X-rays, we’ll recommend the proper course of action for those issues as well. For example, we can save you the discomfort of wisdom teeth that may be on their way to affecting your smile.

Even though dental cleanings and exams are painless and not a big deal to most people, our team understands how greatly patients of all ages can be affected by dental anxiety. If a tooth is sensitive to the touch, we will be extra gentle and sufficiently numb the area during any treatment.

We also provide laughing gas to help soothe the nerves of anxious patients. Laughing gas is even safe for children, who can be understandably afraid to visit the dentist. Our caring staff will also ensure you have the best possible experience and accommodate your needs.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings & Dental Exams

How long does a dental exam and dental cleaning take?

That depends on several factors, including the condition of your teeth. If you haven’t visited a dentist in years, it will likely require more time than usual for your hygienist to remove hardened tartar from your teeth. In addition, you may have more issues you’d like to address with your dentist during your exam. The average time for a cleaning and exam, though, is about an hour.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, most patients should plan to schedule a dental cleaning and exam twice a year. Doing so allows us to keep a close eye on your oral health and monitor any developing problems. If we discover a situation that needs attention, we can treat it early before it worsens and has the chance to damage your smile.

What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

Your regular checkups are designed to uncover any dental problems you may have as well as get your teeth sparkling clean. We may take a set of X-rays, then your hygienist will look over your teeth and gums, making note of any problem areas. They will then perform a thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria. Your dentist will then do a complete exam and make any recommendations needed for treatment.
