Dental exams and cleanings are fundamental components of maintaining optimal oral health. These routine visits to Dental Excellence of Kennesaw play a crucial role in preventing dental problems and ensuring the longevity of your smile. During your dental checkup, our experienced dentists and team will perform a thorough cleaning as well as an in-depth exam to help keep your teeth and gums in the best possible condition.

One of the primary objectives of a dental cleaning is the removal of plaque and tartar, also known as dental calculus. The presence of these substances on your teeth can contribute to tooth decay and periodontal disease if left untreated. Our skilled dental hygienists will meticulously clean your teeth, leaving them smooth and free from harmful buildup. They will also provide thorough flossing and polishing to leave your smile looking and feeling its best.

In addition to the cleaning process, our dentists will conduct a comprehensive examination of your oral health. This examination includes a careful review of your teeth, gums and oral tissues to identify any potential issues. Detecting dental conditions early on is crucial for prompt intervention and successful treatment. To aid in our assessment, we may employ dental X-rays, a valuable diagnostic tool that allows us to see beyond the surface. This helps us identify hidden problems and plan appropriate treatment if necessary.

Maintaining a regular schedule of dental cleanings and exams, typically every six months, is recommended for most patients. However, individuals with specific oral health concerns may require more frequent visits. Additionally, if you ever experience a dental emergency, pain or injury, do not hesitate to reach out to our office for prompt assistance.
