Cleanings & Exams

Cleanings

The American Dental Association recommends a full oral exam and prophylaxis at least twice a year. In addition to having your teeth cleaned, they will be checked for cavities and broken or damaged fillings. We also thoroughly examine all the soft tissue in the mouth to make sure the gums are healthy and there are no signs of oral cancer. Detailed oral hygiene instructions will also be provided.

If you are due for a dental cleaning, please call or email our office to schedule an appointment. Requests can also be made directly on the website.

Initial Exam

When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete insurance and health information forms. This information will help us to get acquainted with you, and to begin your dental treatment.

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Dr. Giordano will thoroughly exam your teeth and gums. X-rays may be recommended.  In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit.
