Let Us Help You Protect Your Teeth for Years to Come

Keeping your mouth as healthy as it can be takes work. Your daily brushing and flossing can go a long way toward keeping your smile healthy and your teeth intact. Even so, no one brushes and flosses perfectly every time. This is why professional cleanings and exams are needed as part of your general dental care.

More than 90 percent of people will develop cavities during their lives. Professional checkups (along with your daily oral hygiene) can go a long way in reducing your risk of developing decay and needing restorative care. For added protection of your teeth, you can get fluoride treatments and dental sealants during your checkups. Fluoride makes teeth more resistant to damage from plaque. Sealants coat your teeth and keep bacteria getting into grooves that are hard to clean.

To make your visits easier and more efficient, we have invested in patient-friendly technology:

  • Digital X-rays – These produce clearer images in less time and use a fraction of the radiation of film X-rays. This helps us find cavities that may not be noticeable yet on the surface of your teeth.
  • VELscope – This device uses fluorescence to exposes anomalies of the soft tissues in your mouth. This can help identify potential oral cancer, so you can get tested to determine if treatment is needed. Early detection could save your life.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams
How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

The time needed for these services will vary depending on several factors, including whether we’ve seen you before and what shape your smile is in. Typically, though, it won’t require more than an hour. It will be time well spent, as your teeth will look and feel great!

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

To get the maximum benefit out of exams and cleanings, you should visit us every six months for these essential services. We remove the bacteria that causes disease and decay, lessening the chance you will suffer from cavities or gum disease. We also use digital X-rays to identify issues that may need attention.

What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

Your regular checkups are designed to uncover any dental problems 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, noting 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 recommend any needed treatment.
