Dental Cleanings & Exams
Dr. Strandburg provides dental cleanings and exams for children and adults. In order to remove dental plaque and prevent cavities and other oral diseases, you should receive a professional dental cleaning every six months. Even with careful brushing and flossing, certain areas of your mouth are too difficult to clean on your own.
Our office cleans your dentures and partials as well. Learn more about our dentures services.
What to Expect at Your Dental Cleaning
During a routine dental cleaning and exam, we take several steps to ensure your oral health, including:
- Examining the health of your gums and charting your existing restorations, such as fillings, crowns, and more
- Taking dental x-rays and photos of the inside of your mouth
- Performing an oral cancer screening
- Cleaning and polishing your teeth
- Performing a complete oral evaluation and presenting options on how to restore your teeth, if needed

“Happy Visits” for the Kiddos
Beginning at 3 years old, you can bring your children in for a dental cleaning and exam. Children under 3 or who are hesitant about coming to the dentist are welcome to join us for a “happy visit” at no charge. During this visit we let them ride in the dental chair, watch cartoons while we count their teeth, and receive a balloon and something from the treasure box at the end. Parents are absolutely allowed in the treatment room. Hopefully, the “happy visit” will make your child less scared when you bring him or her back to see us.
