What Happens During a Routine Dental Examination and Cleaning?

However, many patients in the area who are scheduled for an appointment may be curious as to what they can expect during this visit.

What To Expect During a Dental Cleaning and Examination

At the office of Dr. Kenneth Egger, patients in the area of Mount Pleasant, MI, can expect comprehensive dental care services, including cleanings and examinations.

  • Evaluation. During the appointment, Dr. Kenneth Egger will begin by discussing your medical and dental history with you to gain a better understanding of any existing conditions or concerns. Following this initial conversation, X-rays may be taken if needed to get an inside view of the condition of your teeth and gums.
  • Physical examination. Dr. Kenneth Egger will then thoroughly inspect each tooth for signs of tooth decay or infection, as well as check for oral cancer. If any cavities are found, Dr. Kenneth Egger might be able to fill them during the same visit to prevent further damage.
  • Professional cleaning. After the initial evaluation, our dental hygienists will start the professional cleaning process. They use special instruments to gently remove plaque and tartar buildup on all surfaces of the teeth that brushing alone cannot reach. Then, the dental hygienist will floss and polish the teeth to eliminate any residual staining and leave them feeling smooth and shiny.
  • Education. Our dental team can provide helpful tips on how to keep your smile looking its best in-between visits. When all of the necessary procedures have been completed, Dr. Kenneth Egger will then discuss any findings with you and answer any questions that you may have about your oral health.
