Dental Exam & Cleaning in Arlington Heights
Why schedule your exam and cleaning today?
The most basic dental appointment is also the most necessary: This is the bi-annual exam and cleaning. Routine exams and cleanings cement a strong base for your oral health. Keeping up with these appointments is important in maintaining exceptional oral health and preventing disease and decay.
What to Expect
Routine dental exams are generally quick and easy. You’ll likely be in and out of the office within 45 minutes to an hour.
The exam portion of your appointment consists of a few “bite downs” and “open wides”. That’s it. The process of checking for dental issues is rather simple. Depending on your case, the dentist may want to conduct a quick set of X-rays.
The cleaning portion of the exam is more effective than any toothbrush. Following the removal of plaque and tartar, your dentist will conduct the deepest clean possible, using a high-powered electric brush. Your dentist will then floss your teeth for you and will finish off the session with a fluoride treatment that protects teeth against cavities for months on end. You will leave the dentist’s office not only looking sharp but also feeling fresh.
