Dental Exams and Cleanings

Oral Hygiene At Home Is Important

Our exams and cleanings will be the most effective if they are built around a consistent regimen of brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice a day. You can make a enormous difference in your oral health with responsible and diligent home care.

Why Do I Need Cleanings?

Even if you are very diligent in your oral hygiene, plaque and tartar can build up in hard-to-reach places. Our dentists and hygienists have been trained and given professional tools to give your mouth a thorough cleaning at least every six months. They will not only leave your mouth feeling fresh and invigorated, but they will make it a pleasant experience.

Why Do I Need Exams?

Some people might think that as long as they are brushing their teeth there should be no problems. While good oral hygiene definitely makes a difference, bacteria is very persistent in finding little hiding places and footholds in your mouth. Over time, this can turn into painful and expensive decay. Regular exams help your dentist diagnose problems when they first get started. This gives the dentist many more options for eliminating the problem. Semi-annual exams will very likely save you pain, money, and uncomfortable dental procedures in the future.
