A cleaning/checkup appointment will generally last around 30-60 minutes depending on the level of oral hygiene. This process rids your teeth of any tartar, plaque, and stains. One of our highly qualified doctors will then inspect your mouth for any decay or potential problems such as periodontal disease.
Our hygiene appointments also include a medical history update, digital imaging if required, and a thorough screening exam for oral cancer, gum disease, bone health, and bite abnormalities. We aim to ensure your comfort while providing the most effective treatment possible.
