Exams and Cleanings

Routine cleanings and exams at the dentist’s office are necessary to improve and maintain your oral health. We recommend visiting the dentist at least twice a year for best results, and more often if you have gum disease. During your routine cleanings and exams, Dr. Wood and our dental team will:

  • Review your dental X-rays
  • Look for signs of tooth decay
  • Evaluate your gums and teeth for periodontal (gum) disease
  • Determine the condition of current restorations (bridges, fillings, etc.)
  • Thoroughly clean the teeth, removing plaque and calculus (tartar)

These routine visits, along with consistent home care, can help you achieve healthy, functional, and beautiful teeth for life. If it has been over six months since you last visited the dentist, call Wood Family Dental in Hyannis today to schedule an appointment. With our caring team and gentle hands, every appointment is a pain-free and comfortable experience!
