Dental exams and cleanings are essential to maintaining good oral health. Our knowledgeable dentist, Dr. Kaitilin Riley, recommends that you visit our dental office every six months for a regular dental exam and cleaning. Dental exams include the following components:
- Oral cancer screening
- Thorough evaluation of your current and future dental needs
- Digital X-rays to further examine your teeth and dental health (digital X-rays require less than 1/10ththe energy of traditional film-based X-rays)
If needed, we may also take digital photographs of teeth, groups of teeth, or tissue for our records. Dr. Kaitilin Riley will recommend any needed dental treatments to improve your oral health and prevent future dental problems. Thanks to the computer screens in our treatment rooms, you will be able to comfortably view X-rays and photographs from the dental chair to better understand your oral health and dental treatments.
Our dental hygienists will also provide a careful dental cleaning, during which they will remove any plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from the teeth that you may have missed during your daily flossing and brushing. Our hygienists are passionate about comprehensive care and dental education, and they are committed to helping you improve your home dental hygiene.
