Checkup and Cleans

Just as you likely take your vehicle in to get it serviced at recommended intervals, it’s essential to “service” your smile with regular visits to the dentist. At Exceptional Dental Care, we take a preventative approach to oral health. That’s why we recommend that you visit us twice a year for a checkup and clean. These appointments can help you to enjoy optimal oral health.

What to Expect

  • An examination of each tooth
  • A periodontal evaluation
  • X-rays (both OPG and bite-wing)
  • Oral cancer screening

We’ll polish away surface stains and leave your teeth sparkling clean. All tartar buildup is removed from your teeth and you’ll leave with smooth-feeling teeth. Your dentist will provide a diagnosis and recommend any further treatment. Please allow 45 minutes for the appointment.

Gum Disease Screening

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a quite common and serious problem. This condition can lead to tooth loss if not caught early and treated as soon as possible. Typical symptoms of gum disease include swollen, bleeding or red gums, chronic bad breath, receding gumlines or teeth that shift. If you notice any of these signs of gum disease, be sure to contact us to schedule an evaluation.

If you have gum disease, we can perform a scaling and root planing (a deep clean). This type of cleaning will help to manage your gum disease.

What If I Need Additional Treatment?

If we determine at your checkup that you could benefit from additional treatment, we’ll discuss that with you. You’ll be given all the possible options for treatment so that you can decide how to proceed.
