Preventative at-home care and regular visits to the dentist are the keys to maintaining a lifetime of excellent oral health. At Maras Dentistry, we offer regular exams and cleanings to keep your teeth healthy and your smile shining.

How Long Do Dental Exams Take?

Your regular exam will take about 45 minutes. Each regular exam includes a detailed tooth cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth's surface.

Why Do I Need a Professional Teeth Cleaning?

Try as you may, it’s impossible to get the same level of clean at home that you can at a dental office. We can get in crevices that are hard to reach and remove plaque and tartar build-up that can lead to gum disease. Professional cleanings are thorough, effective, and their effects are longer-lasting than any regular dental hygiene routine you can do at home.

What Do Dentists Look for During an Exam?

Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular exam, we will:

  • Check for any problems that you may not see or feel

  • Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay

  • Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease

  • Perform thorough teeth cleanings

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends that everyone visit the dentist at least twice a year. Visiting our office every six months gives you the chance to talk to the doctor about any questions you may have about your oral health and stay ahead of any potential tooth problems.
