Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

That depends on several factors, including the condition of your teeth. If you haven’t visited a dentist in years, your hygienist will likely require more time than usual to remove hardened tartar from your teeth. In addition, you may have more issues you’d like to address with your dentist during your exam. The average time for a cleaning and exam is about an hour.

Why should I get a dental exam if I’m not in pain?

If you wait until you are in pain, you already have a serious problem. On top of that, not all dental issues cause pain. By getting regular exams, you get the benefit of having dental professionals look at your mouth. We can identify potential concerns or catch them in the early stages. That allows us to fix them before you need expensive and invasive treatments.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel slightly sensitive after cleaning.
