Frequently Asked Questions
Dental Exam & Cleaning FAQ’s
Does a dental exam include a cleaning?
Yes we do our best to provide a dental cleaning the same day as the exam for all scheduled exam/cleaning appointments.
How are teeth cleaned at the dentist?
The entire procedure typically takes 30 to 60 minutes and helps keep your gum and teeth clean. The dentist will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly with a small concave mirror checking for any oral problems such as plaque, dark spots on teeth, or inflamed gums. This indicates to the dentist what parts of the mouth should be focused on.
Why do I need an exam before my cleaning?
It is important to have an examination before your cleaning because your dentist has to complete a full diagnosis of your gum health.
How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?
Typically, a dental cleaning can take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour depending on your dental hygiene.
Is dental cleaning bad for your teeth?
No, dental cleanings are not bad. They do not damage the enamel on your teeth. Cleanings are completely safe and are used to remove any plaque and bacteria build up. If your teeth are not cleaned regularly they can become inflamed and develop gum disease.
