Dental Exams & Cleanings

Dental Exams & Cleanings

What are Exams & Cleanings?

An exam is performed to help detect problems with cavities, loose restorations, cancer and other oral complications. The dental cleaning is performed by our hygienist who works to remove calculus, tartar and stains from your teeth and check the overall health of the gums. Together, exams and cleanings are part of your preventative care routine and are essential in keeping your mouth healthy. We recommend coming in for a cleaning and exam once every six months.

Why are Exams & Cleanings necessary?

It is important to be proactive about your dental health and the best way to accomplish this is by preventing problems and detecting issues early on. Treatment is more effective when issues are found immediately rather than allowed to get worse. Professional cleanings have even been found to help in preventing both tooth decay as well as gum disease. It’s recommended that everyone, even toddlers, have regular bi-annual checkups to improve the health of their teeth and gums.

The. dental work I had done yesterday is a magnificent work of art. My dentist was fantastic. She made me comfortable and explained to me in detail just what she was doing. I am extremely pleased and satisfied customer.

What makes you a good candidate for Exams & Cleanings?

Everyone is a good candidate to come in for preventative care. Even if it has been awhile since you’ve seen a dentist, it is never too late to start taking better care of your teeth. Our mission is to provide you with the care that you need in a warm and family-friendly environment. We can pre-schedule your checkup appointments so that you never have to remember to make time for them.

What can you expect with routine Dental Exams & Cleanings?

The first step is taking x-rays, which are useful in detecting certain intra-oral conditions. Our hygienist then works to remove any hardened calculus, tartar and staining from your teeth and polish the teeth to a high shine. Your gums are checked and measured to check for symptoms of both gingivitis as well as gum disease. After the cleaning is finished, Dr. Kye will come into the office and perform an exam. We check for cavities, loose restorations and even oral cancer as well as other problems. We will create a treatment plan if additional work is needed.
