Portage Mi Dental Cleanings And Exams

Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we offer. Each time you visit us for a checkup, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to help your smile stay healthy. During your cleaning and exam, our dental team will:

  • Clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
  • Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
  • Examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases

Tartar is plaque that has hardened onto your teeth and cannot be removed by normal brushing, flossing, or mouthwash. Only a dental professional can remove tartar. While it may not happen every time, you may notice your teeth look whiter and/or brighter after a teeth cleaning and this is due to the removal of plaque that discolors your teeth.

We may utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your smile and make certain that you receive the dental care you need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
