"Gentle Care From Our Family to Yours"
Cleaning & Exams
Because we are committed to preventive dentistry, we recommend that all of our patients see us at least every six months for a routine cleaning and examination. Dental problems start out small but can quickly worsen to become much more serious conditions. These problems are much easier to treat when we catch them early.
During your regular checkups, we examine the health of your mouth, measure the bone levels around your teeth, check for decay, screen for oral cancer, examine your restorations, evaluate your bite, and remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Your six-month exam and cleaning is a critical part of a preventive program. It is the best way for you to prevent advanced dental problems, and that minimizes the time and money you spend in the dental chair.
