What Are Dental Exams and Cleanings?

In order to keep your smile beautiful, healthy, and bright, our team at Dlight Dental recommends getting dental exams and cleanings twice per year. A dental exam is a thorough assessment of the teeth, gums, jaw, and tongue to identify and treat any underlying oral health issues that may be impacting your general well-being, such as tooth decay or oral cancer. A dental cleaning utilizes professional-grade tools to remove built-up tartar on the teeth and prevent gum disease. We will also provide tips on how to improve your at-home oral hygiene. To schedule your routine dental exam and cleaning, which are typically performed during the same appointment, call our office in Rockville, MD or Washington, D.C.

What Can I Expect from Dental Exams and Cleanings?

Annual exams at our Washington, D.C. and Rockville, MD facilities start off with an overview of your dental history. We may also speak with you about any oral or cosmetic concerns you have so we can properly address them. During particular yearly check-ins, a set of advanced x-rays might be ordered to provide us with greater insight into the wellness of your teeth and oral bone structures. A professional cleaning usually follows the dental exam. To start your cleaning, we will use an ultrasonic device to break down the bigger pieces of tartar and plaque from your teeth. Afterward, a handheld instrument, such as a scaler or curette, will remove the tinier pieces. Once the teeth are clean, they will be carefully polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If requested, a fluoride treatment may be completed as well.


Thank you Dr. Kwoh for my recent dental cleaning and imaging for a nightguard in your newly renovated office with the latest high-tech equipment.

L.N. Google

My experience at Dlight Dental was fantastic from start to finish. The dentist was friendly and conversational, and he took the time to do the cleaning himself. The staff is friendly, energetic, helpful and quick to see me. I don’t remember ever waiting to see the doctor, which is especially appreciated when fitting a dentist visit into a busy schedule.
