  • Enjoy a “fresh-from-the-dentist” feeling after your appointment
  • Keep cavities and gum disease at bay
  • Catch problems early for easier treatments
  • Improve your at-home oral care routine
  • Feel confident about how your smile feels and functions

Protect Your Teeth & Gums With Regular Checkups

Regular checkups are the best way to stay on top of oral health problems. All members of your family are welcome for exams, including infants. Checkups from an early age help ensure proper development of adult teeth.

By seeing us every six months for a cleaning and exam, you’ll get treatment for infections in the early stages. We can also remove the plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth. You can’t do that with only an at-home routine! When you come in for your appointment, here is what you can expect:

  • If it’s your first appointment with us, we’ll take time to get to know you and your oral health concerns. We’ll also take scans and digital X-rays of your teeth if needed.
  • Then we’ll do a thorough exam to look for cavities, gum disease, or signs of oral cancer. Your dentist will address existing issues by creating a treatment plan.
  • A member of our team will do a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing. However, same-day cleaning isn’t possible for every patient at their initial exam.
  • If your teeth require extra protection, we may recommend preventive services like fluoride treatments or dental sealants.

Depending on the condition of your mouth, you may need to return at another time for additional treatments. For example, if you have cavities or dental damage, we’ll repair your teeth with restorative treatments. Or we’ll provide relief for TMJ disorders or sleep apnea with a special mouthguard.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How much does a dental cleaning and exam cost?

These preventive services are essential to your oral health and help reduce your overall dental costs. You can join our Advantage Program to make your regular exams and cleanings affordable. It only costs a low monthly fee. Plus you get discounts on other services.

Who performs dental cleanings and exams?

You can get a dental cleaning and exam here. One of our experienced hygienists will clean your teeth and perform an initial exam of your teeth, gums, and mouth. They’ll note any suspect areas that your dentist will need to take a closer look at after coming in to do a complete exam. Between your hygienist and dentist, your smile will get the best treatment possible during your cleaning and exam.

Are dental cleanings and exams necessary?

The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day. But that is only part of maintaining good oral health. Brushing and flossing won’t remove dental plaque that builds up and hardens on your teeth and infects your gums. Only a trained hygienist has the skills and equipment to do that, which is why you need to visit the dentist for cleanings and exams about twice a year.
