Dental cleanings and exams are important parts of maintaining good oral health.

We can’t overstate the importance of brushing and flossing your teeth every day. But it is equally important that you make time to see our dentist, Dr. Noelle McKenney at least every six months for your routine cleanings and exams.

patient with hygienist cleaningWhen you visit our office, we will clean the plaque and tartar from your teeth that your toothbrush could not remove, as well as polish your teeth to give you a bright, fresh smile. We will also take X-rays to track any changes in your teeth and jaws, and to see if you have any developing problems that may need treatment. The dentist will also give your teeth and mouth a thorough examination to check for cavities, gum disease or other oral health problems. If the dentist finds anything concerning, she will make treatment recommendations to address the problem. The sooner dental problems are treated, the better the outcome will be. The dentist may also give you suggestions for improving your oral hygiene routine. Normally, you should see the dentist every six months for your cleaning and exam, but if you have an issue of concern to the dentist, she may want to see you on a more frequent basis.
