We Put You First During Every Appointment

At our practice, we have a patient-first approach. We want you to feel comfortable during every appointment, no matter the reason you have to come to see us. Whether it’s been a while since your last cleaning or you never miss a checkup, you can expect a lecture-free zone and a team that wants what is best for your smile.

If you are a new patient, your first appointment with us will take around 90 minutes, so we can get to know you personally and find out your oral health history. We will:

  • Take digital X-rays and photos with our intraoral camera to spot and diagnose any underlying issues
  • Thoroughly examine you, so we can check for signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other problems
  • Discuss your concerns and any specific smile goals, such as cosmetic treatments

First appointments typically do not include a cleaning. However, if you are under the age of 18, a cleaning can be conducted on the same day as your first appointment. If we find issues that need attention, your dentist will make recommendations for treatments such as restorative care or gum disease treatment. They’ll discuss exactly what’s needed to get your smile in top condition again.

Your future dental checkups will be more streamlined. We’ll perform a thorough cleaning, getting rid of any signs of tartar and plaque build-up on your teeth. We also do a comprehensive exam and take digital X-rays as needed. Your dentist will create a personalized treatment plan if there are any issues that put your smile at risk for disease or damage.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

That depends on several factors, including the condition of your teeth. If you haven’t visited a dentist in years, it will likely require more time than usual for your hygienist to remove hardened tartar from your teeth. In addition, you may have more issues you’d like to address with your dentist during your exam. If it’s your first appointment, the average time for a cleaning and exam is about 90 minutes. Typical checkups usually take an hour.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

You can typically eat right after a dental cleaning, as it doesn’t require any numbing or recovery time. However, it’s important to consider the potential sensitivity of your teeth and gums after the cleaning. If you experience sensitivity or your dentist advises against consuming certain foods or drinks immediately after the cleaning, it’s best to follow their recommendations. In general, you can resume your regular eating habits after a dental cleaning without significant delay or restrictions.

Why should I get a dental exam if I’m not in pain?

Putting off dental appointments until you are in pain can lead to a serious oral health issue. Not all dental problems show painful symptoms until they are in the advanced stages. Regular dental check-ups give you the advantage of having a dental professional examine your mouth. Detecting oral health concerns in their early stages means less expensive and less invasive treatments.

Do dental checkups include oral cancer screenings?

Yes. Dental checkups typically involve a thorough cleaning, comprehensive exam, and dental X-rays to look for signs of problems like tooth decay or gum disease; an oral cancer screening; and time with your dentist to talk about any current or potential oral health issues that need to be addressed.
