Removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth protects you against many oral health threats, but we do so much more than clean your teeth and examine your mouth to keep your smile healthy!

Seeing you every six months for dental checkups also gives us a chance to detect and treat dental problems while they’re small and manageable. This helps you avoid complicated, costly treatments down the road.

Along with that, you can take advantage of other preventive dentistry services we offer:

  • Dental Sealants – Preventing tooth decay can be especially challenging for the hard-to-reach molars in the back of your mouth. To keep bacteria from collecting in the rough crevices in those teeth, we can apply dental sealants as a shield against cavities.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Fluoride treatments help rebuild your tooth enamel, making it stronger and more protected against microscopic damage and harmful bacteria. We can also send you home with prescription-strength fluoridated toothpaste to boost your oral care regimen!
  • Oral Cancer Screenings – Part of your comprehensive dental care with us includes periodic oral cancer screenings using early detection technology.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

We recommend getting your teeth cleaned and examined every six months. Biannual visits will keep your teeth and gums in good shape. It will also give your dentist a chance to discover any problems while they are small and easily treatable. Plus, exams give us a good opportunity to discuss your smile challenges and goals with you.

Why are dental cleanings and exams necessary?

The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day. Unfortunately, that alone is not enough to prevent harmful plaque buildup that causes cavities and gum disease. That’s why it’s important to see a general dentist twice a year to ensure that your teeth and gums are clean and healthy.

Does insurance cover a dental cleaning and exam?

In our experience, most dental insurance providers want to encourage preventive care, such as dental cleanings. Most plans will cover at least a portion of the costs of one or two cleanings per year. With that in mind, you should check the details of your plan. Know that our team will do our part to help you get the maximum benefits of your coverage.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

Can I get an oral cancer screening at my dental checkup?

Yes, your dental checkups will include periodic oral cancer screenings and dental X-rays. Typically, a trained hygienist will clean your teeth and examine your mouth for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. They will also look for any other abnormalities related to your teeth, gums, and jaw and note them for the dentist.
