Oral Exams & Cleanings

Dental Exam and Cleaning in Maryland Heights

It is important that your teeth are regularly cleaned and checked for decay. It is recommended that a comprehensive dental exam and cleaning be done twice every year. Plaque and calculus (tartar) can only be effectively removed by a dentist or hygienist with specialized instruments. Dental Exams are performed in order to detect cavities early and other diseases at your regularly scheduled checkup appointments.

During your dental cleaning and checkup exam the dental team will remove plaque and calculus (tartar) to prevent gum disease, polish your teeth to remove stain, take dental x-rays (radiographs) to detect decay, abnormalities, bone loss, and infections, perform a thorough oral cancer screening, evaluate for gum disease, and evaluate for tooth decay.
