Routine Exams & Cleanings

I’m ready for my biannual exam and cleaning. Now what?

  1. We’ll start with a comprehensive exam of teeth, gums, and tongue. This may include x-rays, macro digital imaging, and bite evaluation. We will also check for cavities, assess prior fillings, crowns, or implants, and pre-screen for oral cancer.
  2. Next, we will gently remove plaque and tartar build up on teeth and around the gum line.
  3. Once your smile is tartar free, it’s time to get polished! Pick your preferred flavor of toothpaste and get ready for a deep clean feeling.
  4. Floss? Yes, we will. We’ll expertly floss in between your teeth (even the hard-to-reach spots).
  5. Bonus! Dr. Wooten may recommend a post-cleaning fluoride treatment. (But only if you really need it.)
  6. Go show-off your pearly whites.
