Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dental checkup and clean?

A dental check-up and clean is a routine dental appointment that includes an examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth to check for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health problems. A professional cleaning is also performed to remove plaque and tartar build-up, and to polish your teeth to prevent future build-up.

It is recommended that you visit the dentist for a check-up and clean every 6-12 months, or as recommended by your dentist. This frequency can vary depending on your oral health and other factors, such as your age, medical history, and oral hygiene habits.

During a dental check-up and clean, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, looking for any signs of decay or disease. They may also take X-rays to check for any issues below the surface of your teeth. After the examination, your teeth will be professionally cleaned, including scaling to remove plaque and tartar, and polishing to smooth the surface of your teeth.

A dental check-up and clean is generally not painful, and most patients experience only mild discomfort during the procedure. However, if you have sensitive teeth or gums, or if you experience pain during the procedure, let your dentist know and they can take steps to make you more comfortable.
