Cleaning & Exams

Get Brighter, Whiter Teeth with Regular Cleanings and Exams from Michigan's Favorite Dentists and Hygienists!

You deserve an amazing smile!

And really, great smiles begin with clean teeth and healthy gums. Daily brushing and flossing is only part of good oral hygiene. Regular check-ups and cleanings from dental professionals like the ones at Southfield Family Dental Center help ensure your smile will last a lifetime!

Your Regular Dental Check-Up Includes a Dental Cleaning and Exam

Before the Dentist examines your teeth for decay, you’ll be treated by a friendly and talented hygienist. The hygienists at Southfield Family Dental Center truly care about your teeth and gums. They are very gentle, but very thorough when it comes to your cleaning. They are qualified to spot areas you or your children may be missing with your toothbrush and will be able to offer great advice for daily oral care- including what foods you should (and should not) be eating. They will be happy to answer any questions about toothpastes and toothbrushes (we like the spinning kind) as well as how to prevent staining from foods like tea, coffee and cola. They can also help you understand how to care for your children’s baby teeth and newly emerging permanent ones. Be sure to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge our hygienists can provide you with for caring and maintaining a great smile!

Top 10 Reasons to Schedule a Dental Cleaning and Exam:

  1. Prevent oral cancer.
  2. Prevent gum disease.
  3. Help maintain good physical health.
  4. Keep your teeth for a long time.
  5. Detect dental problems early.
  6. Maintain good oral health.
  7. Use your dental insurance plan.
  8. Create a treatment plan.
  9. Have a bright and white smile.
  10. Prevent bad breath.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends the following:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush will not do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
  • Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner.
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.

Help Prevent Heart Disease by Taking Care of Your Teeth!

Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks but for general health as well. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, bone loss, heart disease, strokes and more. Regular check-ups and cleanings can prevent these problems, help spot warning signs, as well as provide you with a clean and healthy smile.
