Dental Exams & Cleanings

What are Dental Exams & Cleanings?

Cleanings and exams are preventative treatments which are essential to keeping your teeth and mouth healthy. They are important for patients of all ages to have. Exams help to identify oral problems before they’re able to get worse. Cleanings are essential for removing tartar and stains that can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

Why are Dental Exams & Cleanings needed?

Both exams and cleanings are essential for keeping your teeth healthy. Exams look for cavities, problematic restorations, and even oral cancer. Cleanings are done by hygienists who will work to remove hardened plaque and stains from your teeth. Your gums are then checked for signs of inflammation and pocketing, which can be a sign of gum disease.

I hate going to the dentist, my kids absolutely adamantly refuse to go to the dentists, but Dr Nellie totally changed our perspective! I mean yes customer service is superb, staff is friendly office is sterile and technology is great, but what won us over is how unbelievably painless the whole process was! My daughter who screams bloody murder at the sight of the dentist did not even bat an eye when Dr Nellie put a crown on her broken tooth. She was literally stunned with how quick and smooth the whole procedure went. My teeth are super sensitive and cleaning is a torture for me. I barely felt anything with Dr Nellie, and my teeth are super clean, white and smooth. Absolutely loved the experience at her clinic, and 100% would recommend.

Just had a great experience in Federal Way Dentistry! Came for check up and broken tooth, Dr. Nellie offered me same day crown and like 90 min later I left the office with fixed tooth, new crown and clean teeth! I am really impressed with new technology and knowledge of the stuff! Federal Way Dentistry is my dentistry now.

How often are Dental Exams & Cleanings needed?

We recommend that you come into the office twice a year for an exam and cleaning. By coming in regularly, we can keep up with the health of your teeth and gums, while identifying any problems early. Patients of all ages should be coming in for bi-annual exams and cleanings. It’s never too late to start taking a proactive approach to your dental care.

What can you expect during Dental Exams & Cleanings?

We begin with a cleaning that removes hardened plaque and staining from your teeth. We then polish and floss your teeth, before checking your gums for signs of inflammation and pocketing. After the cleaning is done, the doctor comes in and performs an examination. During the exam we’re looking for signs of tooth decay, problematic restorations, and other issues that could be detrimental to your oral health. If you need additional work done, this will be scheduled at a later time that is convenient for you. Exams and cleanings are done within about an hour in our office, and by coming in regularly, the appointments will be shorter and more convenient. Even if it’s been awhile since your last cleaning and exam, it’s never too late to start taking care of your teeth.

If you think you might need a dental exam and cleaning, call our office today and we will be happy to further assist you.
