Dental cleanings and exams are fundamental preventive services provided at State Street Dental to ensure your oral health remains in top condition. Every time you visit our office for a checkup, our dedicated dentist and team will perform a thorough teeth cleaning and comprehensive dental exam to help keep your smile bright and healthy.

During your cleaning, our experienced dental hygienists will meticulously remove any plaque or tartar buildup. This is crucial because these substances can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease if not properly managed. After eliminating plaque and tartar, we will floss and polish your teeth, enhancing your smile’s appearance and promoting overall oral hygiene. Our team may also offer recommendations on ways to improve your at-home care, including oral hygiene aids.

Our dental exams are equally thorough. Dr. Gregory Davis will carefully examine your teeth and gums for any signs of dental issues, including cavities, gum disease and other potential problems. To ensure a complete assessment, we may use dental X-rays. These allow us to see what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums, helping us detect issues that might not be visible during a standard exam.

Regular dental cleanings and exams are vital for maintaining good oral health. They help prevent cavities and gum disease and ensure that any dental problems are caught early when they are easier and less expensive to treat. We recommend that you visit us every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. However, depending on your individual needs, we might suggest more frequent visits.

In addition to routine appointments, please contact us right away if you experience any dental emergencies, pain or injuries. Our team is always ready to provide the care you need to maintain your oral health.
