You want to make the most of your dental visits. Through our general dental care, you can avoid a number of problems. If problems do arise, you are at an office with the expertise and experience to treat even complex issues. There’s no need to visit an outside specialist. During your checkups, we can provide all these services:

  • Professional Cleanings – This is far more thorough than what you do daily at home. We remove all the plaque and tartar from your mouth that we find. It’s the best way to keep your teeth in top condition.
  • Professional Exams – We aren’t just taking a look with our eyes. We use intraoral cameras and digital X-rays to get a close-up view so we can find dental problems wherever they may be in your mouth.
  • Fluoride Treatment – Fluoride makes your teeth stronger and more resistant to decay.
  • Dental Sealants – Sealants are like a shield for your teeth that blocks disease-causing bacteria. Often recommended for children and teens, they work well for cavity-prone adults too.
  • Oral Cancer Screenings – Cavities and periodontal problems aren’t the only things we look for when we examine your mouth. If we notice anything unusual, we’ll recommend you visit your physician. We want you to know as soon as possible, so you can get the care you need for the best outcomes.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

For most of our patients, a dental exam and cleaning will take about an hour. We’ll begin by asking you about any problems and possibly taking a set of X-rays. Your dental hygienist will then look over your mouth and perform a thorough teeth cleaning. Finally, your dentist will perform a complete dental exam and make any recommendations needed for a healthy smile.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, we recommend that a patient come in every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. Routine checkups allow us the chance to keep an eye on your oral health and provide early treatment for any problems we spot. You may need to visit us more often if you’re susceptible to gum disease.
