Benefits of dental cleanings and exams

Regular dental cleanings and exams offer more than just a polished smile. Here’s what you can expect:

Maintain Oral Health

Regular cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, helping to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues.

Early Detection

Our comprehensive exams allow us to identify dental problems early on when they are easier and less costly to treat.

Personalized Care

We tailor our cleaning and exam services to meet your unique needs, ensuring a comfortable and effective experience every time.

Professional dental cleaning and exam for healthy teeth

We use state-of-the-art equipment, including an ultrasonic scaler (Cavitron), to ensure a thorough and comfortable cleaning experience. We understand that some patients may experience sensitivity, so we offer the option of using an anesthetic gel for temporary numbing during the cleaning process.

Don’t forget to choose your preferred flavor for the polishing paste — we’ve got some fun selections!

Common questions about dental cleanings and exams

Are dental cleanings and exams painful?


Our dental cleaning and exam procedures are designed to be comfortable. You may experience minor discomfort during the cleaning, but it’s generally well-tolerated. We utilize GINGICaine® for temporary numbing to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?


The duration of a dental cleaning and exam can vary depending on your oral health and specific needs. On average, the process typically takes around 45 minutes to an hour to complete.

How often should I have a dental cleaning and exam?


We generally recommend having a dental cleaning and exam every 6 months to maintain optimal oral health. However, the frequency may vary depending on individual factors such as oral hygiene habits, medical history, and the presence of dental issues.

What does a dental exam involve?


During a dental exam, we’ll thoroughly assess your oral health, including checking for cavities, gum disease, and any signs of oral cancer. We may also take x-rays to identify any hidden dental issues. This comprehensive evaluation helps us develop a personalized treatment plan to address your dental needs effectively.

“Will insurance cover my visit?”

While dental cleaning and exams are typically covered by dental insurance, coverage for additional services may vary. Our staff can assist you in understanding your insurance benefits and will work with you to maximize your coverage.

For those without insurance, we offer an annual savings plan that includes essential dental services and discounts on treatments. We also accept CareCredit and offer flexible financing options with Sunbit to ensure that cost is never a barrier to your dental care.
