What is a dental cleaning & comprehensive exam?

teeth-cleaning-encinoOur team performs dental cleanings during routine visits to our office. Each time you or your child comes in for a checkup, we will provide a professional cleaning to help your smile stay healthy. This teeth cleaning is important, as we can give a more thorough cleaning than can easily be done with a toothbrush. During your tooth cleaning, our dentists and team members will:

  • Clean your teeth by removing plaque and tartar, therefore helping prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease.
  • Polish your teeth for a bright smile
  • Examine your teeth and gums for signs of any dental conditions or diseases

During your exam, we use digital X-rays to check your smile and see if any further treatments are needed. Come in for a dental exam and teeth cleaning in Encino, California, today!

How often should I go to the dentist?

Drs. Howard and Howard recommend that you visit The Dental Office of Encino at least every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We encourage you to visit more often if needed. We urge you to contact us quickly if you experience any dental emergency, including pain or damage to the teeth, gums, or jaw. To schedule your next appointment, please contact our office today!
