Cleanings & Checkups

Your routine cleanings and checkups are one of the best investments in general dentistry to maintain oral health and a beautiful smile. From the toddler with only a few teeth in place to the senior fighting off periodontal disease, cleanings and checkups should be the number one tool in your family’s arsenal to maintain their oral health. At Atencio Family and Sedation Dentistry, we would be honored if you chose us to help you care for your family’s smiles.

When you come to our office for an annual or bi-annual cleaning and checkup, you will start your appointment with our talented hygienist. We will begin by taking any needed x-rays and begin your cleaning. Professional cleanings can remove plaque and tartar that can be difficult or impossible to remove during home oral care. In addition, our hygienist will measure your gums to check for signs of gum disease.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

The next step after teeth cleaning is your comprehensive dental exam. Dr. Atencio will take the time to carefully review x-rays and any findings from the hygienist, along with performing a thorough exam of your teeth. These checkups are the best way to monitor your oral health. We aslo offer oral cancer screenings, which can catch this form of cancer in the early stages when it is easily treatable. Dr. Atencio will also let you know of any signs of dental decay or infection that need treatment, helping you stay on top of minor dental issues before they become painful and expensive dental problems.

Most insurances include cleanings and checkups as part of their preventive coverage, making it worth the time to use this beneficial service. For those without insurance, we offer discount plans to help cover these important office visits. Contact Atencio Family Dentistry today to learn more about scheduling your next cleaning and checkup.
