At your teeth cleanings and exams, Dr. Tate and our team will treat you to outstanding smile care. He will take time to get to know you one-on-one, asking you questions so he can find out your concerns as well as the goals you have for your smile.

In your diagnosis and treatment, we will use some of the latest technology that dentistry offers. It includes:

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams
How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

For most of our patients, a dental exam and cleaning will take about an hour. We’ll begin by asking you about any problems and possibly taking a set of X-rays. Your dental hygienist will then look over your mouth and perform a thorough teeth cleaning. Finally, your dentist will perform a complete dental exam and make any recommendations needed for a healthy smile.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

Luckily, there’s no reason to wait to eat after your cleaning. However, your teeth and gums may be a little sensitive. So you may want to avoid extremely hot, cold, or acidic food and beverages for a few hours. Be sure to ask your dentist if you have any concerns about what you can eat or drink after your appointment.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, we recommend that a patient see us every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. Routine checkups allow us the chance to keep an eye on your oral health and provide early treatment for any problems we spot. You may need to visit us more often if you’re susceptible to gum disease.
