Dental Cleanings
& Exams

We encourage regular checkups for anyone one year and older or when teeth become visible, whichever occurs first. Regular check ups are important to assess dental health risk and treat problems early while they are still manageable.

A regular checkup will include a thorough cleaning and polishing and head, neck and oral exam by one of the doctors. During the exam all hard and soft tissues will be evaluated to ensure good overall health. This includes the jaw joint, teeth, gums, tongue and the surrounding soft tissues. A regular check up and cleaning usually take around one hour.

Your first visit

At your first visit we will go over your medical and dental history. We will then take a Panoramic X-ray that shows the entire structure of the jaw, the position of the teeth and any possible issues in the jaw or surrounding areas. We will then take four more Bitewing X-rays that capture in between the teeth and show breakdown of tooth structure and/or bone. With all this information we will then generate a risk assessment for current and future oral issues. We will go over all our findings with you and figure out a treatment plan that is ideal for your needs. Our office also takes a great deal of time setting up a plan that involves preventative care that you can oversee to lessen your risk and lessen the amount of dental work needed in the future.

  • I went for my first visit today and everyone was super nice and informative, while willing to take time to listen and answer any questions I had. It was also extremely clean and they had Netflix, which is always a plus since I'm behind on Home of Cards and always forget to watch it.
