Dental cleanings and exams are among the most basic treatments provided by our dentist and team. They are also among the most essential dental services you can receive. You should visit our dentist every six months to receive preventive care, and at each of these regular appointments we will provide a professional cleaning and exam to help your mouth and smile remain healthy.

During your appointment, our dentist and team will:

  • Thoroughly clean your teeth to eliminate plaque or tartar (also known as dental calculus) to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Floss and polish your teeth.
  • Examine your teeth and mouth for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases.
  • Take any necessary X-rays to further evaluate your oral health.
  • Discuss your oral health with you, including any additional treatment recommendations.
  • Review your at-home oral hygiene routine with you – we may also make recommendations on ways you can improve it.

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of receiving regular cleanings and exams. These preventive services are vital to your oral health, working to reduce your risk of developing a damaging dental condition and ensuring that any problems which do develop are diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. While biannual visits are typically enough to help you maintain good oral health, our dentist may recommend a more frequent schedule of visits if needed.

We also encourage you to contact our office if you experience a dental emergency – you can reach us at our regular office number or at our emergency number, 703-728-2000.
