<b>What’s a Cleaning and Exam?</b>
A cleaning and exam are designed to keep your teeth healthy. It is important that you come in every six months for both of these procedures to be done. Cleanings are performed by a hygienist while the exam is done by our doctor. At Omni Dental Care, the process is very quick and easy for patients of all ages.
<b>Why would a Cleaning and Exam be needed?</b>
The reason you’re going to need both a cleaning and exam is because you need to keep your teeth healthy. Even with great brushing at home, there is still a chance that you’re missing areas. Plaque that is allowed to harden forms into a substance known as tartar, which will need to be removed professionally. Likewise, the exam gives us an idea if and when you may need work to be done.
<b>Who is a candidate for a Cleaning and Exam?</b>
It is important that each member of your family come in regularly for both cleanings and exams. This is crucial for keeping your teeth healthy and looking their best. We aim to make the process very easy for patients, especially children. It’s never too late to start taking better care of your smile.
<b>What happens during the Cleaning and Exam process?</b>
First, we’ll have you come into the office for a cleaning. The cleaning is performed by our hygienist. The hygienist uses special tools to get rid of tartar and other debris. The next step is for us to carefully and quickly floss the teeth and polish them. Dr. Oleg comes in and performs the exam that is needed. We will let you know immediately if you need to have any other work done and if so, the best way to go about coming in to have it done at your very own convenience.
