Routine Exams & Cleanings

Exams & Cleanings

We recommend that you schedule a routine exam/cleaning at least twice per year. Our routine exam and cleaning begins with a thorough cleaning and assessment by our hygienist, along with x-ray. During this exam, you will be instructed in proper home care and given tips on overall oral health. As needed, we also provide sealants to help protect teeth against decay and fluoride treatments for healthier and stronger enamel.

Our digital, state-of-the-art x-rays expose hidden dental decay; reveal dental abscess, cysts or tumors; show impacted or extra teeth; and also help determine the condition of fillings, crowns, bridges, and root canals. Dental x-rays can also reveal bone loss from gum disease, locate tartar buildup, find foreign bodies within the gum or bone, and see if there is enough bone for the placement of dental implants. These are just some of the many reasons why we rely on dental X-rays.
