One of the most important services provided here at Athens Dental Design is dental cleanings and exams. This routine preventive care plays a vital role in keeping your smile healthy and free from problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental cleanings and exams are among the most basic treatments our dentists and team provide, yet they play an important part in your ongoing treatment plan. These preventive services allow our dentists to monitor your oral health and ensure that any problems which develop are diagnosed and treated promptly, before they can cause significant damage to your teeth, smile and oral health. Making and keeping regular appointments for cleanings and exams every six months can prevent you from experiencing discomfort and spending large amounts of time in our office to resolve issues that have caused significant damage.

When you receive a dental cleaning and exams, our dentists will:

  • Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar
  • Floss and polish your teeth
  • Examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions, including taking X-rays for further evaluation

We recommend that you schedule a dental checkup every six months to receive this care, though we may recommend more frequent visits if needed.
