Dental cleanings and exams are fundamental components of maintaining your oral health. These routine visits are essential to preventing dental problems and ensuring your smile remains bright and disease-free. During your appointment, our dentists and team will perform several crucial tasks to keep your teeth and gums in optimal condition.

Firstly, we will meticulously clean your teeth to eliminate plaque and tartar buildup. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on your teeth, while tartar, also known as dental calculus, is hardened plaque. If not removed, plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and other problems. This makes removing these substances from your teeth crucial to preventing oral health issues and maintaining the health of your teeth and smile.

Following your dental cleaning, we will floss and polish your teeth, leaving them not only clean but also gleaming. This step contributes to a healthier, more attractive smile.

During your dental exam, our dentists will carefully inspect your mouth for any signs of dental conditions or diseases. Detecting problems early is vital for prompt treatment and preventing further complications. We may also take dental X-rays as part of your exam to gain a deeper understanding of your oral health. These images help us identify issues that may not be visible during a visual examination alone.

We advise scheduling regular dental cleanings and exams every six months to maintain optimal oral health. If necessary, we may recommend more frequent visits. Additionally, if you experience a dental emergency, pain or injury, do not hesitate to reach out to us for prompt care.
