Routine Exams & Cleanings

Regular dental examinations allow us to identify and treat any developing issues before they become serious. Exams may include dental x-rays and other diagnostic procedures as needed.

Professional dental cleanings are important because they can remove tartar and plaque build-up that regular brushing and flossing cannot. Your dental hygienist will remove tartar and plaque build-up from your teeth, and then floss and polish them.


Fluoride treatment can help strengthen enamel and prevent cavities in both children and adults.

Oral Cancer Screening

Your dental checkup may include an oral cancer screening, during which your dentist will closely examine the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Digital & Panoramic X-Rays

Digital x-rays use sensors instead of the traditional photographic x-ray film to produce extremely detailed images of the teeth, bones, and other oral structures. Panoramic digital x-rays create a single, flat representation of the entire mouth.

As a diagnostic tool and clinical adjunct, x-rays help your dentist identify diseases and abnormalities that are not visible to the naked eye.
