Why Dental Cleanings And Dental Exams Are Important

Aside from maintaining great home dental hygiene, professional dental cleanings and dental exams are the best way to make sure you never have to deal with major dental issues. The main purpose of a professional dental cleanings and dental exams session is to diagnose any existing issues, plan to treat them, and rid the mouth of any harmful substances that shouldn’t be there (calculus). Our Norton Shores, MI dentist and staff can help you catch dental problems while they are small and allow you to avoid more serious problems that come with extra costs, discomfort, and time.

What To Expect From Your First Appointment

Your first appointment at our office will be pretty simple. First, you will check in at our front desk. You will be greeted with a smile and asked to fill out some new patient forms (if you haven’t already). Once we are ready for you, you will undergo a series of X-rays and exams to check for any signs of a problem. We will then perform your professional cleaning. At some point, we will also take a moment to visually check your smile for any signs of oral cancer or other disease. This appointment should take only about an hour.

Other General Dentistry Services

In addition to our cleaning and exam services, we offer a few other general dentistry options to provide at your checkup. We can help you prevent disease and decay with dental sealants, fluoride treatments, nutritional counseling, and more. We also can fill cavities, treat gum disease, and protect your teeth with mouthguards. Please visit our page on general dentistry to learn more. We are here for all of your dental needs!
