We’ll Find & Address Problems With Thorough Checkups

When you bring your family in for a cleaning and exam, you aren’t just protecting your teeth and gums, your whole body benefits too. Regular cleanings can prevent gum disease, which can increase your risk for heart disease, stroke, and other systemic health issues.

Here is what you can expect during your checkup appointment:

  • Dental Cleanings – We’ll carefully clean your teeth and get rid of any tartar or plaque that has built up. If you show signs of gum disease, we’ll do a deeper cleaning, supervised by our in-house periodontist.
  • Preventive Treatments – We offer fluoride treatment with either varnish or using trays. Fluoride is ideal for patients who need an extra layer of protection against harmful bacteria.
  • Dental Exams – We check for signs of oral cancer, gum disease, and other underlying oral health issues that require our attention. We may recommend additional treatments depending on our findings.

We can also create mouthguards if you grind your teeth or play sports. Plus, we’ll discuss any specific smile goals you have. For example, if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth, we can recommend cosmetic treatments that are suitable for you.

If you are nervous, we do our part to help you feel comfortable. In addition to a topical anesthetic to numb your mouth while we work, we also have oral sedation available.

If you need dental cleanings and exams in Brookline, call 617-397-3958 for an appointment. You can also schedule online. We can’t wait to see your smile!

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

Most of the time, a routine dental cleaning and exam will take about an hour. We’ll give you a thorough dental exam, then our hygienist will clean and polish each of your teeth to get them as white and clean as possible. We may also take a set of X-rays to look for any underlying problems. If we see any areas that need attention, we may recommend additional treatments to keep your smile healthy and attractive.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

Why should I get a dental exam if I’m not in pain?

If you wait until you are in pain, you already have a serious problem. On top of that, not all dental problems cause pain. By getting regular exams, you get the benefit of having dental professionals look at your mouth. We can identify potential problems or catch them in the early stages. That allows us to fix them before you may need expensive and invasive treatments.
