Dental Exams

Think of your dental exam as a deep cleaning – just like you do to your home. You inspect the area, decide what needs cleaned and what looks good, and get to work! Your dentist will do the same for your mouth. During a dental cleaning and exam we will:

  • Examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any potential concerns
  • Possibly take x-rays, if needed
  • Polish your teeth with a dental-grade toothbrush and specialty toothpaste
  • Remove any plaque and tartar build-up
  • Floss
  • Apply a fluoride treatment, if needed

Wholesome Overview

While we may focus on the brushing and flossing part of an exam, the truth is, there is a lot more that goes into each and every dental cleaning and exam. Your dentist is often your first line of defense if something in your body is wrong, and your mouth will tell the tale. That’s why we always take a good look at the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. If your dentist finds you’re experiencing something like gum disease, then early detection is the key to getting everything under control and fixed!

A dental exam also gives you the perfect opportunity to speak with us about any questions or concerns you may have. Are you worried about a sore tooth, grinding your teeth, bad breath, etc.? Whatever it may be, we’re here to help you have a healthy, great-looking smile. Curious about whitening treatments or corrective aligners? Now is a perfect time to inquire.
