Your oral health is incredibly important to your overall health and well-being.

We, along with the American Dental Association®, recommend that you visit the dentist every six months to receive a cleaning and exam. These routine visits help to:
- Prevent tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath
- Save you money by avoiding extensive and costly dental procedures
- Keep your teeth white by reducing staining
- Shorten the time you spend in the dental office
- Give you a healthy smile for a lifetime
During your dental exam, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for signs of developing problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Our dentists may also take X-rays to see what is happening below the surface of your teeth and gums and diagnose any issues not visible to the naked eye.
When you receive a professional dental cleaning, your dental hygienist will begin by exploring the surface of your teeth to determine if you might have any cavities and to examine the quality of any existing fillings or other restorations. A periodontal exam will then be performed to check the health of your gums. Next, your hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove hard mineral buildup (tartar) from your teeth. Your teeth will then be flossed and polished, and fluoride will be applied if needed.
We may also make recommendations about changes to your brushing and flossing habits, if needed, and recommend any other treatments you may require to help you maintain or regain your oral health.
Dental cleanings are not usually uncomfortable, but if you experience any anxiety, please let us know. We have several options to help ensure your comfort, and we will work with you to help you feel at ease throughout your cleaning and exam.
