Dental Exams & Cleanings FAQs

How often should I have a dental exam and cleaning?

We generally recommend that patients visit us every six months for a routine exam and cleaning, though some individuals might require more frequent visits depending on their specific oral health needs.

What can I expect during a dental exam?

During a dental exam, your dentist will check for cavities, examine your gum health, and screen for oral cancer. X-rays may be taken to diagnose issues not visible to the naked eye.

Is a professional cleaning really better than at-home care?

Yes, professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar that regular brushing and flossing can’t, which is crucial for preventing decay and gum disease.

What is the difference between a cleaning and deep cleaning?

A regular cleaning focuses on the surfaces of the teeth and the gum line, while a deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, is needed when there is significant tartar buildup below the gum line, often due to gum disease.

Will my insurance cover dental exams and cleanings?

Most dental insurance plans cover exams and cleanings twice a year. We recommend checking with your provider to understand your specific coverage.
