More About Hygiene & Exams
A healthy smile starts with regular cleaning. Just like getting the oil changed in your car, to keep a healthy mouth, you have to get regular hygiene appointments. Our hygiene appointments are comprehensive. We don’t just look at your teeth, but also look at your gums, tongue, mouth and overall health.
We strongly encourage you to play a part in practicing good oral health by following a dental hygiene routine and working with us by asking questions about how you can improve it.
If you have a history of poor dental health, you should be coming in for your cleaning every 3-4 months. If your smile is healthy and you take very good care of your mouth (brush 2-3 times/day and floss properly) you should visit every 6 months.
If you are a new patient and are booking your appointment for the first time, please let our treatment coordination and front end staff know when the last time you had a hygiene appointment. If it’s been more than 1 year, we’ll need to spend some extra time on your visit.
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.

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.
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.
