What are dental cleanings?

Dental cleanings and exams are vital to the health of your smile and are generally performed by one of our trained dental hygienists. We will perform a dental cleaning and exam during your initial visit and at each subsequent routine checkup appointment. During a dental exam and teeth cleaning in San Antonio, Texas, we will:

  • Clean, dry, and sanitize each tooth
  • Check for signs of decay and damage
  • Examine existing dental restorations for needed repairs
  • Take a series of digital X-rays
  • Review your oral health history

Why are dental cleanings important?

Dental cleanings and exams are important because they allow Dr. Walker to diagnose your smile early while also providing preventive measures. We also take the time to help educate you about your smile and help you love it as much as we do. To make the most out of your dental cleanings and exams, we encourage you to visit our office at least once every six months and as soon as you sense problems may arise. If you would like to schedule an appointment with us, please contact us at Leon Springs Dental Center today. We would be happy to help you in any way we can.
