Enjoy Your Best Smile With Regular Dental Cleanings & Exams

Dental cleanings and exams are fundamental to general dentistry. It’s important to have a professional cleaning every six months, as well as a complete exam to look for problems that could damage your smile. At these important visits:

  • We’ll take a set of digital X-rays and potentially panoramic X-rays to uncover any hidden issues.
  • You’ll meet with your dentist to go over any concerns you have about your smile.
  • Your dentist will perform a thorough exam on your teeth, gums, and mouth with the aid of an iTero intraoral scanner. We’ll also perform an oral cancer screening and an airway evaluation.
  • Your dental hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, making sure to reach the areas you might miss at home.
  • We’ll present you with a treatment plan and give you options for any problems that need to be addressed, such as gum disease or orthodontic issues.

Common Questions About General Dentistry
What is general dentistry?

Daily oral hygiene is essential to keeping your mouth clean and healthy. But as important as brushing and flossing are, they aren’t enough on their own to protect your teeth and gums. General dentistry covers a wide range of treatments designed to help you prevent and detect dental problems, so you can keep your oral health on track.

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to rid your mouth of built-up tartar, plaque, and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your gums. We’ll first use special instruments to clean around and below your gumline where bacteria have collected. Then we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it harder for bacteria to grow there. This treatment may need to be repeated every few months for best results.

Why are mouthguards important?

Mouthguards can serve several important functions, including protecting your teeth, gums, and jaw while playing sports and preventing you from grinding your teeth at night. In either case, a mouthguard created by your dentist is the best way to ensure a custom, comfortable fit and that it’s made of high-quality, durable material.
