Check-up and General Cleaning: What to Expect
One of our fabulous dentists will meet with you and examine your teeth. During your examination, we will perform the following:
- Oral cancer screening
- Check for cavities and tooth infection
- Check for active periodontal or gum disease by doing periodontal measurements, which check the space between the teeth and gums (pocket depths)
If you do not have active periodontal or gum disease, then a general cleaning would be recommended. Getting your teeth cleaned at Valley Dental Group is fast, painless, and great for your teeth. One of our dental hygienists will perform the following procedures:
- Tartar and plaque removal using specialized tools
- Fluoride application, as needed
Our cleanings typically take about 60 minutes, depending on how much plaque and tartar buildup you have. Tartar buildup and cleaning is a complex matter to deal with, but we have the experience to complete your cleaning with no hassles.
