Dental Cleanings & Exams

What Are Dental Cleanings and Exams?

Dental cleanings and exams are fundamental components of preventive dental care, designed to maintain oral health and prevent dental issues before they develop. At ConfiDent Smile Studio, Dr. Ken, Dr. Powell and our skilled team provide thorough cleanings and comprehensive examinations to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy and strong. These routine visits are crucial for identifying potential problems early and keeping your smile bright and healthy.

The Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings and Exams

Regular dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing might miss, preventing cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. Exams allow our dentists and team to detect early signs of dental health issues that can lead to more serious problems if left untreated. These visits also provide an opportunity to discuss oral hygiene practices and address any concerns you may have about your dental health.
