Exams & Cleanings
Professional dental cleanings give our team an opportunity to remove plaque and tartar that you may miss with at-home oral cleaning. We go beyond the standard cleaning, paying attention to every aspect of your oral health to give you the best treatment possible. This not only protects your oral health but your overall health as well.
At My Family Dentistry, you can experience worry-free dentistry in our relaxing, spa-like environment.
Restore Your Strong, Healthy Smile
What to Expect At Your Dental Cleaning
We take pride in going the extra mile at My Family Dentistry. That’s why we do things a bit differently in our dental office. We still perform the same treatments you can experience in other offices. However, our staff provides you with a thorough cleaning you won’t get anywhere else.
We don’t believe in cutting corners at My Family Dentistry. That’s why we spend about an hour with every patient that comes in for a cleaning appointment. Each appointment includes an in-depth tooth scaling to remove tartar and help prevent gum disease. We will perform a periodontal exam based on your gum health as well as take X-rays to assess your bone health.
Your oral health isn’t separate from your overall health. They’re both closely related, which is why we perform such rigorous dental cleanings. To protect your oral and overall health, we perform a dental evaluation to gain a better understanding of your dental care needs. This includes a list of your medications, so we can create an oral care plan personalized to your specific needs.
What Patients Say About Our Dental Cleanings
Most people have never experienced a dental cleaning as thorough as ours. This often leaves them pleasantly surprised once it’s over, telling our hygienists what a great experience they have had.
New patients often ask us, “Is that new? I’ve never had a cleaning like that before.” In truth, we’re only providing the best care for our patients. This means treating everyone who walks through our doors on a custom individual basis. Knowing that you have just received the best cleaning that you’ve ever had will leave you feeling confident in your smile.
Protect Your Overall Health with Dental Cleanings
Dental cleanings do more than keep your smile vibrant — they also help protect your overall health as well. This makes perfect sense when you consider that your mouth is a key access point to your digestive and respiratory systems.
Your oral health can affect your risk of other diseases, including:
- Oral cancer
- Sleep apnea
- Pregnancy complications
That’s why it’s so important to maintain good oral health habits. By combining at-home care with dental cleanings, you are protecting your overall health as well as the health of your teeth and gums.
Learn the My Family Dentistry Difference with New Patient Exams
We take a great feeling of pride in how people respond to our new patient exam. Like clockwork, new patients are astonished by how in-depth the entire process is.
Our team understands that there’s more to your oral health than a bright smile — it’s also part of your overall health. To make sure both are in the best shape possible, we take a patient-centered approach to dental care. We believe that it is the foundation of helping you get the best oral health and the best smile possible.
Our work shines brightest when we combine in-depth exams and long-lasting relationships with our patients. It allows us to serve our patients more holistically than other offices, going beyond the surface issues and giving you the smile you love and deserve.
