Protect Your Oral Health With Thorough Cleanings & Exams

When you come in for a dental checkup, we want you to feel right at home with our team. Our relationship-focused atmosphere puts you first, so you feel confident about discussing your dental concerns with us. Here is what you can expect at your initial visit:

  • Comprehensive Exam – We will do a full-mouth exam and look for signs of cavities, gum disease, and other issues. We also take digital X-rays and capture photos of your mouth with our intraoral cameras.
  • Detailed Cleaning – We’ll remove any plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth. We may also suggest preventive services such as dental sealants or fluoride treatment if your teeth need an extra layer of protection against bacteria.
  • Problem-Focused Exam – If you have a particular problem you are visiting us about, you’ll meet with your dentist before our hygiene team. He’ll create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and gets your smile back in excellent shape.
  • Modern Dental Technology – You’ll discover that we use the most up-to-date dental technology to make your visits go smoother. Digital X-rays capture detailed images of your mouth, and intraoral cameras allow us to share images with you so you better understand your dental issues. We use ultrasonic cleaning technology so cleanings are quicker and involve less scraping.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

At Dorr Family Dentistry, we never rush you through an exam or cleaning! We take time to address all your questions and concerns. We also use techniques and technologies to deliver these services in the most efficient way possible. Most exams and cleanings can be completed in about an hour. It may take a bit longer if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

To keep your teeth and gums in the best possible shape, we recommend visiting our office every six months for dental cleanings and exams. This allows our team to remove bacteria-filled plaque before it can cause any serious problems. It also enables us to find issues like cavities and gum disease in their earliest stages, when they are easiest to treat.
