Keep Your Smile Healthy With Dental Cleanings & Exams

Regular dental cleanings and exams are crucial if you want your smile to look its best and keep your natural teeth for as long as possible. Our office, along with the American Dental Association, recommend that you get these visits twice a year for optimal oral health.

If you’re a new patient to Above the Gate Dentistry, your first cleaning and exam will take about two hours. This gives us plenty of time to get to know you as well as your goals for your smile. Here’s what will happen:

  • You’ll first meet with your dentist, who will ask you some questions and examine your mouth, teeth, and gums.
  • Our hygienist will take digital X-rays and intraoral photos so we can check for any problems.
  • We’ll thoroughly clean your teeth using an ultrasonic cleaner to remove all the plaque and tartar. If needed, we can numb your mouth with Oraqix, a topical anesthetic.
  • We’ll advise you of any problems we’ve noted and give you treatment options so you can decide what’s right for your smile.
