Dental Cleanings & Exams

Among the most important treatments provided at TLC Escondido Dental are dental cleanings and exams. This routine preventive care plays a key role in helping you maintain good oral health and avoid dental problems.

What Happens During A Dental Cleaning?

During your dental cleaning, our hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease if not removed. We will then floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile.

What Happens During A Dental Exam?

Dental exams involve our dentists checking your teeth and supporting oral structures for signs of cavities, gum disease or other damaging dental conditions. X-rays may be taken to further evaluate your teeth and mouth and check for any developing problems. After your exam, our dentists will share their findings with you so that you can understand your oral health and make informed decisions about your care. If any additional treatments are needed we will discuss your options with you. Please feel free to ask any questions or bring up any concerns you may have — we are always happy to provide you with more information and want you to feel completely comfortable and confident in the care you receive.

Why Is Preventive Care Important?

Many people only visit the dentist if they have a problem, and while they may think that this saves them time and money, the reality is that these treatments to repair and restore damage costs more money and time than simply coming to our office for routine preventive care. Preventive care helps you avoid developing problems in the first place, and ensures that any issues which do arise are diagnosed and treated in the early stages of development, before they can cause any significant damage.

We recommend that you visit Dr. Jorge Reyes or Dr. Catalina Madrigal every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam.
