Protect Your Oral Health With Routine Dental Care

A study showed that about a quarter of adults between the ages of 20 and 44 have cavities. That may not sound like a big deal, but cavities can put your teeth at risk if left untreated. At Colorado Smiles, that’s one of many dental problems we look for during your checkup. We spend time getting to know you, your oral health history, and any underlying issues that put your oral and overall health at risk. Here is what you can expect at your first visit:

  • Comprehensive Exam – Dr. Rawlings will sit down with you and do a complete one-hour exam. This includes taking digital X-rays and clinical photographs. She’ll check your head and neck for any indications of oral cancer. We’ll also look for signs of gum disease, cavities, and other issues.
  • Thorough Dental Cleaning – The second hour of your appointment will include a cleaning. We’ll use ultrasonic cleaning technology that gets rid of tartar and plaque build-up. If necessary, we’ll have you return for another appointment if you have gum disease and need a deeper cleaning.
  • Preventive Treatments – If your teeth need an extra layer of defense, we’ll apply fluoride treatments or dental sealants.
  • Personalized Tips – Dr. Rawlings will discuss ways you can improve your oral care routine at home. She’ll also explore treatments to improve your smile, such as restorative or cosmetic care, depending on your goals.

Call 888-495-5508 for dental cleanings and exams in Montrose. We recommend you visit us every six months for your checkup!

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

The length of these services may vary a bit, depending on whether we take X-rays or provide any preventive services like dental sealants. Usually, though, we can complete an exam and cleaning in about an hour. You may need to allow more time if it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a dentist.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

Why should I get a dental exam if I’m not in pain?

If you wait until you are in pain, you already have a serious problem. On top of that, not all dental problems cause pain. By getting regular exams, you get the benefit of having dental professionals look at your mouth. We can identify potential problems or catch them in the early stages. That allows us to fix them before you may need expensive and invasive treatments.
