Typically done every 6 months, this exam includes a visual inspection of the teeth and gums, a professional cleaning, and sometimes x-rays to detect any changes or issues since the last visit

Emergency Dental Exam:

Conducted when a patient experiences acute pain, trauma, or other urgent dental issues. It focuses on identifying and treating the immediate problem

This routine cleaning removes plaque and tartar above the gum line and is recommended twice a year for maintaining oral health

Scaling and Root Planing:


A deep cleaning method for patients with gum disease, it involves cleaning below the gum line and smoothing the tooth roots to prevent bacteria buildup

Full Mouth Debridement:


If tartar has built up significantly, this intensive cleaning is necessary to clear the surfaces and allow for proper dental examination
