Dental Cleanings & Exams

Regular dental cleanings and exams are a fundamental aspect of maintaining optimal oral health. You need these services at least twice a year, as recommended by our dentist. However, some individuals might require more frequent visits based on their specific dental conditions or concerns. Whether you have a history of dental issues or simply want to enjoy excellent oral health, preventive care through routine cleanings and exams is vital to catch problems early and prevent them from escalating.

What Happens During Your Cleaning & Exam

During your dental cleaning and exam at River Point Dental, you can anticipate a comprehensive and personalized experience.

  • Our dental hygienist will carefully clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar buildup. This not only leaves your teeth feeling fresh but also helps prevent cavities and gum disease.
  • Following the cleaning, Dr. Antony Thomas will conduct a thorough examination, checking for any signs of oral health issues like cavities, gum disease or oral cancer. X-rays may be taken to provide a deeper look at your oral health.
  • We will discuss your at-home hygiene routine with you and may make recommendations to help you improve your brushing and flossing. We may also recommend the use of other oral hygiene aids, such as a Waterpik, or specific products which may benefit you and help you maintain better oral health.
  • If any additional treatments are needed, we will discuss them with you and create a treatment plan to provide you with the care you need.
