Dental Cleaning and Consultation
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we provide at our office. Your cleaning and consultation will consist of a thorough visible examination of the teeth and gums. We utilize digital x-rays for a comprehensive view of your teeth and bone with minimal radiation. Your teeth will be cleaned by one of our gentle and highly skilled dental hygienist, who will use special instruments to remove hardened plaque (tartar) from your teeth and polish them. They will provide you with tools and specialized home care instructions to help you maintain optimal dental health at home. Finally, you’ll consult with one of our dentists about any oral health or questions that you may have and your dentist will discuss any treatment recommendations he or she may have for you.
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. Even if you brush and floss after every meal and before bed, bacteria-harboring plaque can accumulate in the tiniest crevices, grooves and pits. Over time, the teeth will begin to decay in those areas, which may result in pain and partial or total tooth loss.
We recommend to most patients that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain, or injury.
