Teeth Cleaning & Exam

Regular Teeth Cleaning

Current dental cleaning technology is a successful practice that has led patients to care for their teeth at home. Although patients today have the ability to maintain their oral health, some practices are not as successful as a professional dental cleaning.

A professional dental cleaning and exam is an extension of your current oral hygiene practices and can help you achieve your dental goals. Our dental teeth cleaning treatments enhance your oral health and helps avoid numerous dental emergencies and other dental health disorders.

Our family dental practice's routine dental cleaning and exams help detect health problems before they become serious. A dental examination every 6 months allows us to identify and treat dental issues quickly, which results in less severe conditions and lessens discomfort and pain.

Educating Our Patients

We provide the education you may need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Maintaining proper oral hygiene at home is just as important as visiting our dental clinic.

Our dentist recommends brushing your teeth twice daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Furthermore, flossing daily helps reduce plaque buildup, which can decay and destroy teeth. Ward off germs and bacteria and strengthen your teeth with a proper oral hygiene routine.

Dental Cleaning Cost

The cost of a dental cleaning is very affordable and ensures the health of your gums and teeth for years to come. In addition, most dental insurance and Medicaid provide annual coverage for dental cleaning and exams - so there's nearly nothing out of pocket.

Typically, our dental hygienists will perform the dental cleanings while our dentist will conduct the exam. X-rays are often taken initially to review your teeth below the gum line and ensure the health of your teeth.
