Your Teeth & Gums Stay Healthy With Routine Dental Care

We recommend patients visit us for a dental checkup at least every six months so we can stay on top of dental health issues as they arise instead of when they become a dental emergency. Routine cleanings are part of what helps prevent problems like gum disease. Here is what you can expect when you visit us for a checkup:

  • Dental Cleanings – We’ll thoroughly clean your teeth and remove the plaque and tartar that has built up on your tooth enamel. We can also apply fluoride varnish and dental sealants to give your teeth an extra layer of protection against cavities.
  • Dental Examinations – Our dentists will look for any signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and other issues that need attention. We also do screenings for oral cancer.

If you are a new patient, your first visit will focus on building a relationship with our team. We’ll discuss your smile goals and any areas of concern, take X-rays, and do a thorough examination. Your first visit may or may not include a cleaning, since this initial appointment is all about gathering information and developing a personalized treatment plan for you.

Keep your smile healthy with dental cleanings and exams in Atlanta. Call 678-990-3143 if you are a new patient or call 404-567-8900 if you are an existing patient to make an appointment.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

That depends on several factors, including the condition of your teeth. If you haven’t visited a dentist in years, it will likely require more time than usual for your hygienist to remove hardened tartar from your teeth. In addition, you may have more issues you’d like to address with your dentist during your exam. The average time for a cleaning and exam, though, is about an hour.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait a little while since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

To keep your teeth and gums in the best possible shape, we recommend visiting our office every six months for dental cleanings and exams. This allows our team to remove bacteria-filled plaque before it can cause any serious problems. It also enables us to find issues like cavities and gum disease in their earliest stages, when they are easiest to treat.
