Ensure Long-Term Dental Health With Thorough Care

Your car needs regular maintenance to stay in top shape, and your teeth do too! Our dental cleanings and exams help keep dental issues from causing you pain or leading to expensive procedures. Here is what you can expect:

  • We closely examine your teeth, gums, tongue, and cheek tissues for any irregularities with the help of digital X-rays. You can feel safe knowing that they use far less radiation than traditional X-rays.
  • You will be able to see exactly what we see when examining your mouth, thanks to our intraoral cameras that produce images you can watch on monitors.
  • We will clean your teeth and remove any signs of plaque and tartar that you can’t reach with regular brushing.
  • We may recommend other preventive services, such as dental sealants and fluoride varnishes, to further protect your teeth.
  • At the end of your visit, we’ll provide several tips for taking care of your teeth at home until your next dental cleaning. We can even provide nutritional counseling if you need assistance protecting your smile through your dietary choices.

Although cleanings and exams are painless, you may have sensitive areas of your mouth, which we will treat gently and numb if necessary. For exceptionally anxious patients, we offer sedation. Inhaled sedation provides a calming sensation that only lasts the length of your visit. It is safe for children, and it can relieve their dental anxiety so they no longer fear visiting the dentist in the future. For a deeper level of relaxation, we may recommend oral sedation.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings & Exams

When should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

For the best results, you should have your teeth cleaned and examined every six months. Regular visits reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Your checkups are an opportunity for our dental professionals to discover problems while they are still simple to treat. Additionally, your visits give you a chance to discuss your goals for your smile.

How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?

We can usually complete these essential services in about an hour, but the time needed for your cleaning and exam depends on the condition of your mouth. Our hygienists need more time to remove hardened tartar from your teeth if you haven’t had a professional cleaning in years. You also may have other oral care issues you want to discuss with one of our dentists during your appointment.

How long after a cleaning can I eat?

If you receive a fluoride treatment during your appointment, you will need to wait about 30 minutes before you eat anything. If you have received a dental sealant, it will take about 48 hours or so for your teeth to feel normal while the sealant takes the shape of your teeth. We recommend avoiding any sticky, gummy or chewy foods that can break or chip the sealant. If you’ve only had a cleaning, there’s no need to wait to eat at all after your appointment!
