Maintaining a healthy smile starts with regular dental cleanings and exams. At Mission Family Dentistry, we prioritize your oral health by providing comprehensive cleanings and thorough examinations designed to prevent dental issues before they develop. These routine visits are essential not only for keeping your teeth and gums healthy but also for catching potential problems early, when they are easier and less expensive to treat.

A dental cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar from your teeth, areas that regular brushing and flossing might miss. This process helps prevent cavities and periodontal disease. The dental exam follows, during which our dentist and team checks for signs of oral diseases, such as decay and gum disease, and assesses the overall health of your mouth.

During your appointment, you can expect a thorough cleaning by our dental hygienist who will scale your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, polish your teeth, and floss between them. A detailed examination by Dr. Sean Odenwalder, including digital X-rays if necessary, identifies any hidden issues and plans any needed treatments. You will also have a chance to discuss your oral health, including any specific concerns you may have or areas requiring attention.
