Cleanings & Checkups

Your routine checkups and cleanings are a vital part of caring for your smile. One of the best ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy is with regular visits to the dentist for general dental care. At Ora Dentistry, we offer comprehensive dental exams and thorough cleanings to care for your smile. Stay on top of your dental health by visiting us for your next scheduled cleaning and checkup.

Daily home care for your oral health can help prevent many dental issues, but it is not enough on its own. Professional cleanings are also important to remove plaque and tartar that can lead to serious oral health issues like decay and gum disease. Most adults can benefit from receiving two cleanings per year, more if there are periodontal issues present. When combined with good oral hygiene, many dental issues can be prevented with regular cleanings.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

While cleanings can prevent and even treat some oral health issues, regular exams can catch small issues before they become larger problems. Annual dental exams can identify small pockets or decay, cracks or other issues that need treatment. Fixing these problems when they first start not only protects your smile, it can save you money. It is much less expensive to remove a small cavity or repair a hairline crack than to need root canal therapy or a dental crown if these issues are allowed to progress.

The good news is that most dental insurance plans cover cleanings and checkups under preventive care. Even if you do not have insurance, we have options to make preventive care affordable. Ask our team about our Dental Savers Plan and our payment options. Getting the routine care you need can protect your smile and reduce the cost of caring for your dental health. Contact Ora Dentistry today to schedule your next checkup.
