Optimize Your Total Body Health Through Regular Dental Checkups

At Blankenship Family Dentistry, our new patient dental exam is very thorough. We don’t want to miss the slightest detail that could cause your smile or your body’s health to suffer. Our teeth cleaning is equally extensive. You’ll leave our office with smooth, clean teeth that you can only get from the dentist! Here’s an overview of what you can expect at your routine dental checkup:

  • Medical History Review – For convenience, new patients can complete their medical history and new patient forms online. We’ll also discuss specific issues or pain you’re having, as well as your goals for your smile.
  • Digital X-rays – We’ll take a detailed look at your teeth, jaw, and nerves while exposing you to less radiation than traditional X-rays.
  • Head and Neck Exam – Our dentists look for early signs of oral cancer.
  • Full Dental Exam – We check for cavities, gum disease below the gumline, bite issues, and TMJ problems. We also look at the condition of previous dental restorations. Our intraoral cameras allow you to see what we see. Plus, we use cavity detectors to locate tooth decay not visible to the naked eye.
  • Complete Teeth Cleaning – Our team pays special attention to areas you might miss at home. Our hygienist will rid your mouth of disease-causing bacteria, plaque, and tartar.
  • Detailed Review of Your Exam Findings – We’ll take time to answer any questions you have.
  • Custom Treatment Plan With Financial Options – Depending on your situation, we will create a treatment plan at the time of your exam review or schedule another time to do so. We’ll work with you to customize a plan you’re completely comfortable with, including looking at payment options.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings & Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

The length of these services may vary a bit, depending on whether we take X-rays or provide any preventive services like dental sealants. Usually, though, we can complete an exam and cleaning in about an hour. You may need to allow more time if it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a dentist.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

To keep your teeth and gums in the best possible shape, we recommend visiting our office every six months for dental cleanings and exams. This allows our team to remove bacteria-filled plaque before it can cause any serious problems. It also enables us to find issues like cavities and gum disease in their earliest stages, when they are easiest to treat.

What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

At our office, both your dentist and dental hygienist will examine your mouth. Your hygienist will floss between your teeth and use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar buildup. To finish, we will polish your teeth so your smile can look its best. While you are here, we want you to be comfortable and pain-free. We’ll be happy to provide you with a cozy blanket and dental sedation, if you’d like.
