What Does a Dental Exam and Teeth Cleaning Include?

- Tooth decay
- Bone loss
- Teeth grinding
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Oral cancer
Based on the results of your examination, our dentist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan to address your unique dental needs.

Why Should I See a Professional for a Dental Exam and Gum Disease Treatment?
While an at-home oral health regimen of brushing and flossing is certainly instrumental in protecting your oral health, only a dentist can remove the plaque and calculus that can build up on your teeth over time. Plaque is the bacterial film that develops on our teeth after we eat or drink. If not removed by brushing and flossing, that film can harden into a hard calculus that can attack the tooth enamel and cause cavities. The bacteria that cause plaque can also get under the gumline to cause gum disease. During the initial stage of gum disease, which is known as gingivitis, your gums may become inflamed, red, and sensitive. They may also start to bleed when you brush and floss. Gingivitis can normally be reversed with proper treatment. If not addressed, however, it can progress to periodontal disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss. Once gum disease reaches this stage, more aggressive treatments, including surgery, may be required.
Do You Offer Treatments for Bad Breath?
We have all experienced the embarrassment of bad breath after eating certain foods. Unfortunately, more than 25% of Americans live with chronic bad breath, called halitosis. In most cases, the condition is caused by poor oral health and inadequate oral hygiene. Our dentists can recommend a home oral health regimen, professional cleanings, and other specialized treatments to help you manage your halitosis symptoms. If you are embarrassed by chronic bad breath, call today to schedule a consultation.
Who Should Consider an Oral Cancer Screening?
Many types of oral cancer can be successfully treated if diagnosed during the early stages. Regular oral cancer screenings are the most effective way to identify suspicious lesions and lumps before they spread and become life threatening. Oral cancer screenings are a noninvasive procedure in which the dentist inspects the face, lips, and oral cavity for any abnormalities, including swelling, bumps, ulcerations, or asymmetries in color or texture. If your dentist identifies any areas of concern, he or she may order additional tests, such as a biopsy, to confirm the diagnosis. Our dentists perform oral cancer screenings during every initial exam, and we recommend them for every patient over the age of 18. Individuals who use tobacco or drink alcohol on a regular basis may need more frequent screenings.
How Much Do Dental Exams and Cleanings Cost?
We strive to keep our services as affordable as possible, and we are proud to work with a number of popular dental insurance plans. If you have dental insurance, all or part of the cost of your exam and cleaning may be covered. Of course, insurance coverage varies from plan to plan, so we recommend that you contact your insurer to familiarize yourself with your plan’s benefits and limitations. If you need any additional treatments, we will provide you with an estimate of your cost and various payment options following your initial consultation once you and your dentist have decided on a treatment plan.
