Even if you brush and floss regularly, you still need to visit us for dental cleanings and exams in Oakland. The reason? You can only do so much on your own at home. You need the help of a professional to get to all the places you miss and address underlying health issues you can’t see with the naked eye. As a patient of Laurel Smile Dentistry, you will:

  • Address oral health issues early on before they lead to a dental emergency
  • Enjoy peace of mind about having a healthy mouth
  • Remove plaque and harmful bacteria that causes cavities and tooth decay

Feel Confident About Your Oral Health With Cleanings & Exams

Although we are experts at restoring severely damaged or diseased smiles, we’d rather get ahead of problems with regular dental checkups. In fact, general dentistry is the cornerstone of dental care. We’ll use modern dental technology such as digital X-rays to determine what’s going on inside your mouth. You can also expect:

  • Thorough cleanings with ultrasonic technology to eliminate hardened plaque and tartar from your teeth
  • Comprehensive exams that look for cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other issues in your mouth
  • Dental sealants that are applied to the chewing surfaces of your teeth to protect against cavities and decay
  • Fluoride treatments to give your teeth an extra layer of defense against harmful bacteria

If we do discover issues that need addressing, we’ll walk through what’s necessary to restore your good oral health. We’ll discuss your treatment plan and ensure you feel at ease about moving forward with treatment.

Don’t wait another day to protect your smile! New patients can call 510-983-7444 for dental cleanings and exams in Oakland. Existing patients can call 510-240-7264 to schedule these services. We even have Saturday appointments available!

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

That depends on several factors, including the condition of your teeth. If you haven’t visited a dentist in years, it will likely require more time than usual for your hygienist to remove hardened tartar from your teeth. In addition, you may have more issues you’d like to address with your dentist during your exam. The average time for a cleaning and exam, though, is about an hour.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, most patients should plan to schedule a dental cleaning and exam twice a year. Doing so allows us to keep a close eye on your oral health and monitor any developing problems. If we discover a situation that needs attention, we can treat it early before it worsens and has the chance to damage your smile.
