Dental cleanings and exams are critical to maintaining overall oral health and enhancing the well-being of our patients’ lives. At Gillespie Dental Associates, we are committed to providing extraordinary dental care and world-class customer service, ensuring a comforting and relaxing experience from start to finish. During your cleaning and exam, our dental team will:
- Clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine your teeth and gums for signs of any damaging dental conditions, diseases or signs of oral cancer
- We also utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your smile and make certain that you receive the dental care you need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
We recommend that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain or injury.
