Receive a Comprehensive Exam & Thorough Cleaning

When you visit us for your dental exam and cleaning, you can be assured of receiving gentle yet comprehensive care:

  • We’ll begin your visit by asking about your dental history.
  • Then we’ll take a set of digital X-rays for a closer look at your teeth and the structure of your mouth.
  • Our dental hygienist will examine your mouth for any problems, making note of areas your dentist needs to pay special attention to.
  • Next, the hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, making sure to include areas you might miss at home with regular brushing and flossing.
  • Your dentist will then perform a complete dental exam.

Depending on the results of your exam, we may recommend one or more preventive treatments such as fluoride treatment or varnish, which can strengthen your tooth enamel and help prevent cavities. Tooth sealants may also be recommended to protect the biting surfaces of your molars against decay.

If we see any signs of gum disease, we offer “deep cleaning” using a scaling and root planing procedure. To make your treatment more comfortable, we’ll first numb your gums with Oraqix, a painless gel we apply to them. Oraqix can also be used during a regular teeth cleaning if needed.

Regular dental cleanings and exams in Corpus Christi will give you the most beautiful smile possible. Call Sabal Dental today at 361-256-5958 to schedule your next appointment. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings & Exams

How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?

For most of our patients, your dental cleaning and exam will take about an hour. During this time we may take a set of X-rays, then your hygienist will look over your mouth for any obvious problems. You’ll also receive a complete teeth cleaning and polishing to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your mouth. Your dentist will then perform a complete dental exam.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

We recommend you visit us at least twice a year for a dental cleaning and exam. These routine checkups give us the chance to keep an eye on your oral health and spot any dental problems early on. Early detection and treatment of problems like cavities and gum disease mean less invasive treatment and a better overall outcome.
