What Can You Expect During Your Dental Checkup and Teeth Cleaning?

Your biannual dental visits have two distinct parts. First, we’ll conduct a thorough dental exam, which is known as a checkup. We’ll closely inspect your teeth, gums, soft tissues, bite alignment, and the rest of your mouth for any signs of developing issues. We may take digital X-rays to look for problems hiding underneath your gumline or between teeth. Afterward, we’ll discuss our findings with you and create a custom treatment plan to maintain excellent oral health.

Then, we’ll wrap up your appointment with a gentle teeth cleaning. With a sharp eye, special tools, and a gentle touch, we will carefully remove built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth. Once all these particles are cleared away, we’ll polish your teeth to remove any surface stains and leave you with a refreshed, gleaming smile!

How Often Do You Need a Dental Checkup and Cleaning?

For most patients, we recommend coming in for dental checkups every six months. However, some patients may need to visit us more frequently, such as those who:

  • Have a history of poor oral health
  • Are overcoming a significant issue like gum disease
  • Are pregnant (which increases your risk of gum disease)
  • Smoke or chew tobacco
  • Have certain health conditions or take certain medications

Why Are Dental Checkups and Teeth Cleanings Important?

While these regular dental visits are quick and easy, they are very important for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Spot and stop issues as early as possible: Even if your teeth look and feel fine, visiting us twice a year lets us spot issues that you may not see or feel yet and treat them before they become much larger problems.
  • Boost overall health: Keeping your mouth healthy with routine checkups encourages better overall health. Studies show that keeping your teeth and gums clean can boost your immune system and reduce your risk of systemic conditions like heart disease and arthritis.
  • Save money: Catching and treating issues as early as possible typically costs far less time, money, and discomfort than waiting for worse problems to develop. In fact, experts estimate that for every dollar spent on preventive dental care, up to $50 can be saved on future repairs and treatments.
