Dental Exams & Cleanings
Regular dental exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular exam, we will:
- Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
- Perform a thorough teeth cleaning
Performing these steps allows your doctor to identify issues at an earlier stage. If these issues were left untreated and undiagnosed they could end up costing time, money, and more pain.
How Long Do Dental Exams Take?
Your regular exam will take about 45 minutes. Each regular exam includes a detailed teeth cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth’s surface.
