Regular dental checkups for a confident smile
Details about Your Dental Checkup
A healthy mouth and strong teeth are a team effort. That’s why our clinic team works collaboratively with each patient to improve and maintain their oral hygiene.
After all, dental health can improve your overall health and wellness.
If this is your first visit to the Dental Health Clinic, your checkup will include a full-mouth, digital x-ray; an exam with one of our dentists; a full teeth cleaning with a hygienist; before-and-after photos of your dental hygiene; and a detailed treatment plan, if required. For most patients, a dental exam every six months is sufficient for regular cleaning and early diagnosis or treatment of any dental issues.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why bother with regular teeth cleaning and checkups?
Regular dental cleaning ensures that potentially harmful plaque and bacteria are removed from your mouth, especially in spots that you can’t reach with a toothbrush or floss at home. Without regular cleaning from a dental hygienist, the buildup of plaque and bacteria could lead to harmful health issues including dental disease in your mouth.
Will the teeth cleaning procedure be uncomfortable?
During your appointment, the hygienist will use an ultrasonic water scaler to clean your teeth. This tool is a less invasive way to remove any buildup of plaque, tartar, bacteria and stains from your mouth.
