Dental cleanings and exams are the backbone of all dental care, and they are two of the most important services provided at Hacienda Heights Family Dentistry. We recommend that you visit our office every six months to receive a dental cleaning and exam. Depending on your individual needs, more frequent appointments may be recommended.
Dental cleanings and exams allow our dentist and team to monitor your oral health. This way, we can prevent problems from occurring by removing decay- and disease-causing factors, and we can diagnose any developing problems when they are in the earliest stages and are therefore easier to successfully treat.
When you visit our office for your routine dental checkup, Dr. Bhatt and our hygienist will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth, including flossing and polishing them
- Perform a full examination, including a check for signs of periodontal disease
- Perform an oral cancer screening
- Take any needed X-rays
- Review your oral hygiene and make recommendations on ways you can improve your home care
We will help you schedule your next routine appointment before you leave our dental office.
