Dental Exams and Cleanings

iSmile provides comprehensive dental exams and cleanings to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy and quickly treat any developing problems. We recommend that you receive this preventive treatment every six months. Call our office today to make your appointment with our dentists and hygienists and learn more about dental cleanings and exams in Utah and Arizona.

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 professional teeth cleaning and dental exams 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

iSmile strives to provide compassionate, high-quality dental services using the latest techniques and to allow you to have healthy teeth and a beautiful smile for a lifetime! To promote a comfortable environment, we offer the following comfort care items.

  • Wifi
  • Refreshments
  • Blankets
  • Earplugs
  • Neck Pillows
  • Dark Glasses
  • Chapstick
  • Headphones
  • Mouth Props
  • Stress Balls

We encourage all of our patients to visit us at least once every six months. We will provide a thorough dental cleaning and exam during these routine appointments to ensure that your smile is in good health. Depending on your individual dental needs, you may need to come to our office more often.

We may utilize dental X-rays to evaluate your smile further and make sure 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 treating any harmful conditions as early as possible.

Practice routine oral care at home with regular brushing, flossing, oral rinse, and any mouth guards or at-home products discussed with your dentist at any dental cleaning. Avoiding foods high in acid and sugar can help protect your teeth as well.

A dental cleaning should not cause any discomfort. However, if you have any complicating factors, it may. Please discuss any uncomfortable moments you may have, and the iSmile dental team will help distinguish any underlying factors and console your discomfort.

Can I eat after a dental cleaning?2021-09-13T10:24:05-09:00

You will need to discuss eating after your dental cleaning with your provider. Some routine treatments done at cleanings, such as fluoride or sealants, need time to be absorbed and take effect before eating.
