Cleanings/Exams

Dental cleanings are an important part of long term oral health and hygiene. The process involves the removal of plaque and bacteria from the teeth and surrounding tissue to prevent dental decay, gingivitis, and periodontal disease.

There are varying degrees of cleanings that patients may need, from simple plaque removal and polish to deep scale and debridement. This depends on the location and amount of tarter build-up along with existing oral conditions.

Regular dental exams are an important part of long term and preventive dental health. During your exam, the hygienist and dentist work together as a team to identify gum inflammation, bone loss, dental decay, and oral cancer. Your dentist and hygienist will also check your face, neck, and mouth for any abnormalities and discuss any other issues you may be encountering.
