Dental Exams & Cleanings

Keep your teeth healthy for life! By taking small preventative measures regularly, you can keep your teeth and gums healthy today and every day.


While home maintenance is essential, regular cleanings and examinations are necessary to maintain a healthy mouth. A professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar. Tartar is plaque that has hardened and can be above or below the gum line. Your teeth will also be polished which removes plaque and stain.

A comprehensive dental examination will be performed by your dentist at your regular check up which will include:

  • Gum disease evaluation
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Evaluation of restorations
  • Tooth decay evaluation
  • Evaluation of x-rays for decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss


Using the most advanced dental technology possible is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.

Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.

A full mouth series of dental x-rays is recommended for new patients. A full series is usually good for five years. Bite-wing x-rays (x-rays of top and bottom teeth biting together) are taken at recall (check-up) visits and are recommended once or twice a year to detect new dental problems.
