What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

During the dental appointment for a cleaning and exam, a thorough cleaning and examination of your mouth will take place. Our dental hygienist will look at your teeth and gums to ensure the cleaning can proceed. Once our dental hygienist determines your teeth and gums are in good condition, special dental tools are used to help remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. The hygienist will polish, floss, and rinse your teeth and let our dentist do a final checkup. During this time, you can express concerns about your oral health, ask questions, or discover if you have to schedule another dental appointment to complete restorations.

How often should I have a dental exam and cleaning?

A dental exam and cleaning with your local dentist should occur at least twice a year. This dental appointment time frame allows the dentist to check up on your oral health and treat dental issues before they worsen. However, if your oral health is at risk for tooth decay or periodontal disease, then your local dentist may recommend more frequent dental appointments. Overall, regularly visiting with your local dentist can prevent, treat, and manage your oral health.
