Preventative Services - Routine Exams, X-Rays & Cleanings


Our hygienists are experienced, well trained, and state certified.  Their main concern is the health and comfort of all their patients. 

Children and adults are encouraged to have two routine cleanings and exams per year as these are the frontline tools in the prevention and treatment of tooth decay and gum disease.   During this visit, one of our dental hygienists will remove plaque from your teeth, especially from places where your brush can't reach, such as underneath the gum line and in-between teeth.  We will then clean your teeth and if appropriate, apply fluoride to help protect your teeth once you leave the office.  Studies show that exposure of teeth to fluoride helps to strengthen and rebuild tooth structure, and helps prevent future decay.

All patients receive comprehensive head and neck examinations and clinical oral cancer screenings at their initial exam appointments and at all checkup hygiene appointments.  In addition, our hygienists and dentists use visual and palpation clues as useful tools in the detection of cancer. 

Bitewing x-rays and full mouth series of x-rays are taken at proper intervals, and a panograph is taken when necessary.  Our digital x-ray system and panograph are high tech, efficient, low exposure, and comfortable for the patient.

Daily brushing and flossing can keep plaque to a minimum and, in conjunction with professional cleanings 2-4 times a year, can keep your teeth healthy for life.
