Good Oral Health Begins With a Dental Cleaning & Exam

Your regular visits to Johnson Dentistry give us the opportunity to monitor your smile and look for any problems before they have the chance to worsen. Generally speaking, the sooner we can detect cavities and other issues, the easier it is to treat them and the less likely they are to cause extensive damage.

During your cleaning and exam:

  • Your dental hygienist will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums for any problems, including oral cancer. We may also take a set of X-rays for an up-close look at your teeth roots, bones, and nerves. We’ll also use an electronic cavity detector that can pick up traces of decay invisible to the human eye. Any problems will be noted so that Dr. Johnson can also look at them.
  • We’ll thoroughly clean and polish each of your teeth. Your hygienist will be careful to get into all the tight places that you miss when brushing and flossing. Your teeth will sparkle, and you’ll have that “fresh-mouth” feeling.
  • Dr. Johnson will give your mouth a thorough examination, paying special attention to any potential problems noted by your hygienist.
  • Our team will lay out a treatment plan for additional services, if necessary. Depending on the condition of your mouth, we may recommend fluoride treatments to strengthen your tooth enamel and prevent cavities, or tooth sealants that protect your teeth against bacteria. If we find cavities, we’ll recommend restorative dentistry such as tooth fillings to repair the damage.

Take good care of your only teeth with regular dental cleanings and exams in Spring, TX. Call Johnson Dentistry today at 281-944-3634 to schedule an appointment.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, we recommend that a patient come in every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. Routine checkups allow us the chance to keep an eye on your oral health and provide early treatment for any problems we spot. You may need to visit us more often if you’re susceptible to gum disease.

What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

Both your dental hygienist and your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and entire mouth to look for signs of any problems. We may also screen for oral cancer and take digital X-rays to get a panoramic image of the inside of your mouth. Then your hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, paying special attention to areas you might miss at home. We’ll recommend any services needed to keep your mouth healthy.

How much does a dental exam and cleaning cost?

Your dental care costs will vary depending on the services the practice includes in a typical checkup, your individual treatment plan, and your dental insurance coverage. Typically, dental cleanings and exams can cost anywhere from $100 to $400 without insurance, but most providers include routine care benefits. For members of our savings plan, two preventive cleanings and exams are included annually.
