Dental cleaning and examination, commonly known as a dental checkup, is a crucial component of maintaining oral health and overall well-being. During this routine procedure, our skilled dentist or dental hygienist meticulously cleans and scales the teeth to remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to cavities and gum disease if left untreated. We recommend that you receive a dental cleaning and exam from our caring dentist every 6 months.

What does a Dental Cleaning & Exam Entail?

Dental Cleanings & Exams

Who needs dental cleaning?

Regular checkups and cleanings are essential for maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. Additionally, a healthy mouth can help shield your body from serious illnesses that affect the rest of it. Vital organs and other body parts can become infected by oral infections.

A dental hygienist is the person who typically cleans people’s teeth. Your entire mouth is physically examined before the cleaning procedure starts. The dental hygienist examines the area around your teeth and gums with a small mirror to look for any indications of gingivitis (inflamed gums) or other potential issues.
