Our dentist and team here in Newport News, VA, and Hampton Roads, VA, are excited to help you prepare your smile for the approaching spring season with a professional dental exam and cleaning. Receiving regular dental cleanings every six months can greatly improve your oral health, and they are the perfect partnership to your daily oral care routine of brushing and flossing your teeth.

Studies show that regular dental cleanings can also help lower your risk of general diseases like stroke and heart disease, and dental exams can help identify health problems such as oral cancer while they are in their early stages. Regular dental exams and cleanings also help to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease, as well as allow us to detect and fix these problems early on when they can be treated easily and inexpensively.

During your dental exam and cleaning, our team will perform an oral exam, possible take some dental X-rays, and clean your teeth. The cleaning involves removing tartar above and below your gums, polish your teeth, and floss away plaque. Our dental professionals may also review the following:

— Signs of cavities

— Status of your gum health

— Occlusal bite

— Indications of TMJ or tooth grinding

— Dental infection or signs of oral cancer
