What can you expect during a routine Cleaning and Checkup?
Routine cleanings and checkups involve coming into our office and first being seen by the hygienist. The hygienist works to check your gums for signs of gingivitis and gum disease. The hygienist then works to clean your teeth thoroughly and gets rid of hardened plaque and calculus. Our doctor will come in after the cleaning to perform the exam. The exam is meant to check for signs of decay and other problems like loose restorations and oral cancer. Both a cleaning and checkup take less than an hour in our office.
If you need both a cleaning and a checkup, call our office and one of our helpful staff members will be happy to assist you.
