Dental Cleanings & Exams
The foundations of a healthy smile can be found in two things: dental cleanings and exams. While most people need to come in every six months, our dentists, Dr. Chelsea Longlet, Dr. Michael Longlet, and Dr. Eric Alston may need to see you more often, depending on the health of your smile. If it is time for you or the members of your family to have a dental cleaning and exam in Bend, Oregon, call 541-388-0078 today to plan your visit to Mill Point Dental!
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we provide at our office. Each time you visit our dental practice for a checkup, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to help your smile stay healthy. During your cleaning and exam, our dental team will:
- Clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases
We may utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your smile and make certain that you receive the dental care you need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
We recommend that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain or injury. To schedule your next appointment, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
From start to finish, I was very comfortable with the process of X-rays, cleaning (by Cassandra) and exam (by Dr. Chelsea). Everyone I encountered was very cordial and professional. My husband and I recently moved from the Southern Oregon Coast, and I am so glad I was referred to Mill Point Dental.
