Exams & Cleanings

Probably the most important piece of your dental hygiene plan is to continue to have routine dental exams and cleanings. We’ve all heard the old adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, and that does double for dentistry. We custom make our dental health plan for each and every one of our patients, ensuring that you get the perfect schedule for your dental needs.

Our regular exams include the following basic procedures:

  • Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
  • Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
  • Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
  • Perform a thorough teeth cleaning
  • Polish your teeth with gluten-free prophy paste

How Long are Dental Exams?

Most routine exams and cleanings will last between 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on your dental needs. Your exam includes an extensive dental cleaning where we clean, polish, and remove any plaque buildup from your teeth.

Our standard dental health plan recommends that you visit our office twice a year for your cleaning to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and that we can stay well ahead of any potential dental disasters. The earlier we catch the warning signs of potential dental trauma, the easier we can take care of it. After your initial appointment, our team of administrators will set you up with a reoccurring dental exam plan, minimizing your need to schedule and plan these appointments yourself. We strive to make it as easy as possible for you to maintain and keep your smile beautiful, healthy, and vibrant. Your oral health and hygiene has far-reaching impacts across the rest of your body, and by choosing Essentially Pure Dentistry, you will notice yourself looking and feeling better than ever before.
