Cleanings And Exams

Preventive Dental Care for the Whole Family in Monroe, WI

professional dental exam and cleaning every 6 months is essential for maintaining optimal oral health. Adults and children should see us at least twice a year to help keep tooth decay and other troublesome issues at bay.

Not only does regular dental care prevent major problems with your teeth, gums and jawbone, but it also helps your dentist detect diseases like oral cancer and periodontitis (gum disease) in the earliest stages, while they are still very treatable.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

  • During your examination and cleaning appointment, one of our capable team members will take digital pictures, and possibly X-rays, of your teeth, gums, and jaws. They will also ask you questions to get as clear a picture as possible of your general oral health.
  • Next, one of our doctors will physically examine your teeth and mouth and review the pictures and X-rays to check for problems like tooth decay and gum disease. If they find any trouble spots, they will show you exactly what they see and explain the best course of action to restore your oral health.
  • After your exam, one of our dental hygienists will clean and polish your teeth using special instruments designed to eliminate tartar and plaque buildup from the areas that are hard to reach with regular brushing and flossing. At the end of your cleaning, your teeth will look and feel amazing!

Next Steps

It is essential to follow through with any treatment recommendations you receive from the dentist. If you have any questions about treatment options or timing, the dentist will be happy to answer them and provide you with a detailed plan. If you are concerned about cost, our patient coordinator will help you take advantage of any insurance benefits you may have and explain additional financing options available to you.

The Bottom Line: We want you to enjoy excellent oral health for your lifetime, and we will do everything we can to help you get the treatment you need and deserve.
