What is a dental cleaning and dental exam?
- Plaque and tartar cause decay! We will gently remove all built-up plaque and tartar to prevent damage to your smile.
- Each tooth will be cleaned, dried, and polished for a beautiful shine.
- We will check existing dental restorations to make sure they are in good order and do not need any repair or maintenance.
- To ensure we provide a quick diagnosis and effective early treatment, we check for periodontal disease and perform an oral cancer screening.
- During your first visit, we will take a series of x-rays. If necessary, we will take more during later appointments.
