What to expect for dental cleanings and exams
So what you should expect with a basic cleaning and exam here in the practice is a thorough examination of your gum tissue and your teeth, as well as an oral cancer screening. We do a lot of basics that work through all those aspects so that we make sure that you’re in good health, not only are your teeth in good health.
Our hygienist will take X-rays. We do that every six months so that we can be proactive. We use all-digital radiographs, so they’re very low radiation so that we’re taking good care of the patient, but that we’re catching things early so we can be proactive and protect, rather than have a lot of issues coming down the road that are bigger to address.
