What is a dental cleaning and exam?

Dental cleanings and exams are essential components in maintaining good oral health. We encourage you to visit the dental office of Dennis K. Sacry, DDS, PC every six months for a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam. During the cleaning, our friendly dentist and dental team will remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth that you may have missed during your normal brushing and flossing. Tartar, which can contribute to tooth decay and periodontal disease, can only be removed by a dental professional, so it is important to visit us regularly for a teeth cleaning in Whitehall, Montana. We will also polish your teeth to give you a healthy, radiant smile.

The dental exam includes an examination of your teeth, gums, and the rest of your mouth. We will check for signs of dental problems, such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and oral cancer. We may use digital dental X-rays to further examine your smile and check for conditions that may not be detected by the unassisted eye. We are dedicated to treating any problematic dental conditions before they become more serious. If it has been more than six months since your last dental cleaning and exam, we invite you to contact us today to schedule your visit with Dr. Dennis Sacry. We are eager to care for you!
