Dr. Jason M. Peterson and our dental team believe that the first step to achieving all of your smile goals is to keep your smile clean and bright. This is one of the reasons we offer dental cleanings and exams, which are performed with the goal to prevent and diagnose decay effectively. Generally performed by a dental hygienist under the direction of our periodontist, we will generally follow these measures during a teeth cleaning in Idaho Falls, Idaho:

  • Remove built-up plaque and tartar with a thorough cleaning
  • Polish each tooth to a beautiful shine
  • Check for signs of gingivitis and periodontal disease
  • Take a series of dental X-rays to better understand your smile
  • Examine each tooth for signs of decay or damage
  • Ensure existing restorations are functioning properly
  • Review your dental history and any questions you may have

Dental cleanings and exams are important diagnostic tools and allow our team to begin planning any treatments you may need. If it has been some time since you have visited the dentist, we invite you to contact our office today and schedule a time to come see us. We look forward to helping you achieve optimal dental health.
