Enjoy a Winning Smile With Regular Dental Cleanings & Exams

Our team is ready to help you and your family enjoy beautiful smiles with routine dental cleanings and exams. These appointments allow us to monitor your teeth and gums and provide early treatment for any problems that come up, like cavities or gum disease. If you’re a new patient at Above the Gate Dentistry, your first appointment will take about two hours. Here’s what will happen:

  • You’ll first meet with your dentist. They will ask you about your dental history and listen carefully to your wants and needs, so they can get a good idea of your goals.
  • You’ll receive a comprehensive exam by the dentist to look for any problems that need to be addressed. They will let you know what they find and make recommendations for treatment as needed.
  • Your dental hygienist will take X-rays and intraoral photos for up-close views of your teeth, gums, and roots. They may also advise you on the best ways to brush and floss your teeth and give you other dental tips.
  • Your hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth with an ultrasonic cleaner to remove any plaque and tartar. We can use a topical anesthetic called Oraqix to numb your mouth for comfort, if needed.

Take Advantage of Our Other General Dentistry Services

You’ll find more than just cleanings and exams. Here are some other treatments to help you show off your best smile:

  • Gum Disease Treatment – Your hygienist will deep clean your gums and smooth your teeth roots to help prevent bacteria from collecting under your gumline. We’ll use either Ultrasonic or traditional scaling and root planing to do this. After treatment is performed, a laser treatment may be recommended to remove any harmful bacteria and create a clean space for gums to heal.
  • Chronic Dry Mouth and Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment – Our team will work to determine the causes of these conditions, so we can make recommendations for specialty products and give you advice on managing them.
