Exams and Cleanings

Dental ExamsPreventive dentistry is the best way to keep your oral health on the right track. While good oral hygiene habits are essential to preventing dental problems, you should not overlook the value of dental checkups and cleanings. Regular dental office exams and professional cleanings at Ivy Rose Family Dentistry enable us to keep your teeth and gums in the best condition possible. The gums are the foundation to your oral health and it’s important to protect that foundation. In addition, the head is connected to the body and as a result protecting your smile impacts your overall health.

State-of-the-Art Equipment

When you schedule your routine cleanings at Ivy Rose Family Dentistry, you can expect to get professional cleanings customized to your dental health. Our dental hygienists have over 20 years’ experience utilizing ultrasonic scalers that remove bacteria and tartar while maximizing patient comfort. We are also highly educated about the latest medical-grade gels and prescription mouth rinses due to regular training.

Extrinsic stains and dental plaque are effectively removed with our hi-tech ultrasonic scaler and we utilize a special instrument called a Prophy-Jet to help remove tough stains from smoking or drinking tea and coffee. We incorporate the use of digital x-rays and other preventative diagnostic tools to reduce the amount of radiation exposure for our patients. These tools help us diagnose potential problem areas while keeping the exposure to radiation minimal. The frequency of x-rays is determined based on caries risk level. Please ask us about this.
