New Patient Cleaning & Checkup
Our office uses advanced technology and modern techniques to ensure the highest quality dental care with minimal discomfort.
Regular cleanings are essential to both your oral and overall health! We’ll help you keep a healthy mouth and fresh breath so that you can enhance your relationships and live better.
The backbone of every oral health care plan is twice a year dental checkups and teeth cleanings with our skilled team. Each six month checkup starts with diagnostic evaluation using state-of-the-art digital x-rays. During the checkup, we offer gentle, attentive examination of every smile screening for oral cancer, tooth decay, gum disease, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching. Then, our skilled hygienists carefully remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar from every tooth surface to restore and preserve oral health. Finally, our dentists meet one-on-one with each patient to discuss the results of our thorough oral health assessment and screenings. We’re happy to answer questions throughout any appointment, but this consultation time is a great opportunity to ask our team questions, express concerns, and create a plan for future care.

Typically a general cleaning will last around 60 minutes while one of our qualified hygienists gently cleans the surfaces of your teeth. The process rids your teeth of any built up tartar, plaque, and stains by using an ultrasonic water scaler and various manual scalers. The hygienist will then carefully examine your mouth for any existing or potential problems such as decay or periodontal disease.
