Dental Exams & Cleanings
What are Dental Exams & Cleanings?
Dental exams and cleanings are essential for keeping your teeth and mouth healthy. Cleanings are performed by registered dental hygienists who will clean any tartar and stains off of your teeth. Exams are performed by Dr. Bloom to look for cavities and other intra-oral problems. We recommend having cleanings and exams done once every six months.
Why are Dental Exams & Cleanings needed?
If you continually forgo preventative care and treatment, minor problems can go unnoticed and get worse with time. Preventative care is the best way to keep your smile looking its best. It is never too early or too late to take control of the health of your teeth. Even if it’s been awhile since your last appointment, we welcome you into our office for professional quality treatment.
Who is a candidate for Dental Exams & Cleanings?
Every member of your family is a great candidate for a cleaning and exam. In fact, your children are never too young to get into the office for their first appointment. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care in a relaxed and personable environment. We’ve been working with patients for over 30 years and pride ourselves in creating and keeping healthy smiles.
What can be expected during your Dental Exam & Cleaning?
The first part of your bi-annual checkup appointment in our office will be a cleaning. The cleaning is performed by a hygienist who will clear away tartar, stains and plaque from the teeth. The teeth are then polished and flossed to clear away any remaining plaque. After the cleaning, the hygienist will check your gums for any signs of gum disease. Dr. Bloom then comes in and performs the examination to look for cavities and other issues. If treatment is needed, we will schedule you to come back in for the work to be done at your own convenience.
