More About Hygiene & Exams


Take control of your oral health with regular checkups and cleaning.

Your body as a whole is greatly affected by your oral hygiene—maintaining a healthy mouth and fresh breath is a key part of sustaining your livelihood. Why see the dentist?

To prevent gum disease and other issues that may turn into more costly dental issues.

To maintain clean teeth and healthy gums.

To prevent staining on the teeth and enhance your white smile.

To prevent cavities.

To minimize tooth sensitivity.

To live with fresh breath.

Tartar and plaque accumulation are the starting stages of tooth decay and gum disease.

With regular cleanings and checkups, we can attend to the above minor issues and prevent the more detrimental ones. During your visit we will:

  • Go over your dental and medical history forms.
  • Take X-rays of your teeth and mouth.
  • Discuss the results.
  • Work with you to form a specific treatment plan.
  • Ease any anxiety you may have by answering all of your questions.
  • Perform a routine teeth cleaning which includes polishing and an assessment of your teeth and gums.

Common Questions


How often do I need to visit the dentist?

For most people without serious oral health issues, a visit to the dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and evaluation is sufficient. Those who have special circumstances may need to see a dentist more often.

What common oral health problems should I be aware of?

Gum disease and cavities are by far the most common oral health issues that you need to watch out for. Brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist regularly is the best way to guard against both of these problems.
