Regular cleanings and exams are an important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy. We recommend our patients schedule a routine exam and cleaning every six months. During this exam, we will:
- Check for any issues that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
- Perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth and polish them
Your exam and cleaning will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. These routine appointments include a comprehensive cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth’s surface, and bring out the natural shine of your teeth! Regular cleanings and exams are offered by appointment only, so please contact us today to schedule your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.
Additionally, if you have any other questions about your smile, or are interested in Invisalign or veneers (for example), let us know ahead of time so we can make sure your appointment lasts a little longer so we can answer all your questions! We want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your smile, so don’t be shy about asking questions!
