Dental Cleanings and Exams

The importance of regular dental visits cannot be overstated, and as advocated by the American Dental Association (ADA), it is recommended to schedule these appointments at least twice a year. These routine check-ups and professional cleanings serve as the cornerstone of maintaining optimal oral health throughout your life. At Allenton Family Dentistry, we take this recommendation to heart and are dedicated to consistently providing our patients with high-quality dental cleanings and comprehensive preventive exams.

Professional cleanings rid the teeth of harmful plaque and tartar build-up. This is important for preventing tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues.

Additionally, a professional cleaning by our hygienist may remove some surface stains. This can help keep your teeth looking whiter and brighter. 

During your examination, we will also: 

  • Evaluate your overall oral health 
  • Discuss oral hygiene practices and habits 
  • Check your bite and jaw for any issues 
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer 
  • Evaluate existing tooth restorations 
  • Take dental x-rays if necessary

Regular professional dental cleanings and exams are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile. Contact us to request an appointment for a dental exam and cleaning.
