Check-Ups & Cleanings

Preventative Dental Care

Dental Check-Ups

We recommend that all patients over the age of one come in for a dental check-up every 6 months.

A dental check-up includes a physical exam of your entire mouth to check around your teeth and gums for any signs of gingivitis, cavities, oral cancers or other potential concerns. Your check-up may also include x-rays of your teeth and jaw.

Dental Cleanings

Our gentle dental cleanings are performed every checkup by one of our experienced and caring dental hygienists to remove tartar and plaque buildup that causes dental disease.

After a scaler is used to make your teeth tartar-free, the hygienist will give them a deep clean with a high-powered electric brush and floss between your teeth to make your pearly whites sparkle.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that cleaning began at age one and no later than age three.  Fluoride is also administered by the hygienist based on the child’s age.
