Preventive Cleanings & Exams
Keeping up with your six-month cleanings and checkups will ensure that your teeth and gums are looking and feeling their best. During a standard cleaning, our hygienist will gently remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from the surface of your teeth. She’ll also polish your teeth and floss to test the condition of your gums.
Dr. Cherian will then perform a thorough examination, including a visual assessment, an evaluation of your current restorations, a review of any X-rays that were taken, and a screening for early signs of gum disease and oral cancer.
