Everyone has different dental needs and smile goals, so each appointment time varies. However, the average length of a full-mouth examination and teeth cleaning is between 30-60 minutes.

What to Expect at Your Dental Checkup

If you are coming in for a routine dental checkup, one of our dentists will review your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have.

We then take digital dental x-rays of your mouth to ensure all underlying structures are healthy and functional. Because your continued health is our priority, we screen for oral cancers at every dental visit.

The dentist assesses the condition of your teeth, gums, lips, cheeks, and other soft tissues to ensure there are no signs of decay, damage, or disease.

When the exam is complete, the dental hygienist gently and thoroughly cleans your teeth with specialized tools. Only your hygienist or dentist can effectively remove plaque and tartar from each tooth.

If you have gingivitis or gum disease, your dentist or hygienist will clean below the gumline and smooth the gums to promote soft tissue healing and elasticity.

At the end of your visit, your dentist will discuss any areas in need of improvement and offer guidance regarding your oral hygiene practices.

You are welcome to schedule your next appointment with our office and continue your day with a fresher, cleaner smile.
