Because dental cleanings and exams in Rochester will likely bring you to our office more than any other service, we do our best to make them a positive experience every time. One way we do that is by using dental technology that minimizes poking and prodding during your exams. We’ll examine you with:Chelsea on the Convenience of Northwest Dental Group
- DIAGNOdent, a handheld tool that uses laser fluorescence to find cavities when they are small and simple to treat.
- Digital X-rays, for clear digital images of your mouth and teeth. With less radiation and no film, they are safer and faster than traditional X-rays.
- Digital panoramic X-rays, which give our dentists a view of your whole mouth in one image.
- Intraoral cameras, handheld cameras which make it easier for us to see into every part of your mouth. We can also share images with you while discussing your options for treatment.
We recommend visiting us every six months for a cleaning and exam. To schedule your next exam, call Northwest Dental Group at 507-315-2932. Our extended hours make it easy to schedule exams. We even offer Saturday appointments!
We Pride Ourselves on Thorough Dental Exams
New patients can plan to spend about an hour and a half with our team for dental exams and cleanings. Less time is needed if you’re a returning patient. Here is what you can expect during our exam:
- Examination of your teeth and mouth, during which we’ll look for evidence of issues like decay, gum disease, and destructive teeth grinding
- A thorough cleaning, with removal of the plaque and tartar that can cause cavities
- A screening for oral cancer
- Treatment for any problems that can’t wait, like badly decayed teeth
- Discussion of a treatment plan, which may include preventive dental care such as application of fluoride and/or dental sealants
- Digital X-rays of your teeth, if needed
