Routine dental cleanings and exams help patients receive preventive treatment and maintain a healthy smile! Your appointment may involve a thorough cleaning to remove bacteria from your teeth and an exam to determine the state of your oral health. 

Dental cleanings and exams are the most basic and essential preventive treatments offered at Miner Dental in San Antonio, Texas. Professional teeth cleaning and a dental exam are provided at every check-up to help you achieve and maintain good oral health.

During your clean and exam visit, you can expect:

  • Dental cleaning and x-rays – our dental hygiene team will provide you with gentle cleaning, removing any tartar or plaque, and will polish your teeth to prevent any bacteria from sticking to them. The hygienist will then take necessary x-rays to enable the dentist to check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues.
  • Intraoral examination – your dentist will check for any wear and tear on your teeth and if you have any alignment issues or jaw pain. He will also check for any early signs of oral cancer and tooth restorations to ensure sealing out of any bacteria. They will then work with you to create a treatment plan that will help restore your oral health and overall wellness. 

Planning advanced care 

The team will use dental x-rays to evaluate your smile and ensure that you receive the necessary dental care. They will also guide you on good hygiene habits and homecare such as flossing to help you maintain good oral health.

We recommend a routine dental cleaning and exam every six months to maintain good oral health. Regular visits also help prevent cavities, gum disease, and early treatment for any adverse conditions that may occur.
