Regular Checkups at Our Family Dentistry Practice
Six-month check-ups are a great way for our family dentists to check for cavities, infections, oral cancer, and other issues. Catching these problems early can keep your smile healthy and happy. During regular professional cleanings, our dental hygienists are trained to remove plaque, which will prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Our final polishing will make your smile shine!
Our Exam & Cleaning Process
During a routine dental check-up, maintaining oral health is the prime focus. The process generally follows a systematic approach. First, a hygienist tackles the dental cleaning, ensuring teeth are free from unwanted build-up. The subsequent examination by the dentist identifies potential concerns to ensure early intervention if needed. Here’s a breakdown:
- Review of dental and medical history.
- Digital X-rays (if necessary) to detect unseen problems.
- Removal of plaque and tartar using specialized tools.
- Polishing teeth to eradicate surface stains.
- Detailed oral examination to check for signs of decay, gum disease, and other issues.
- Discussion and recommendations based on findings.
These steps work in tandem to promote oral well-being and address potential problems proactively.

Protecting Your Family’s Dental Health
Protect your family’s teeth with good hygiene and regular checkups. For added protection, we recommend dental sealants and fluoride supplements. Dental sealants use a thin layer of biocompatible plastic to create a protective seal on your teeth.
When you come in for a cleaning, our dental hygienist can also provide fluoride supplements. Fluoride supplements are applied by brushing a varnish coating on your teeth to help with sensitivity and long-term protection.
