Dental Exams
and Cleanings

Preventive Dental Care in Cincinnati, OH

The health of your teeth and mouth is very important to the well-being of your entire body, and while routine brushing and flossing at home is necessary to keep your smile looking its best, visiting your dentist for a comprehensive exam and cleaning is essential. The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist every six months to ensure your teeth stay healthy and your smile stays beautiful.

By routinely seeing your dentist for exams and cleanings, you can:

  • Prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath
  • Save money by avoiding costly and extensive dental procedures
  • Keep your teeth white by reducing staining from food and drinks
  • Shorten the time spent in your dentist’s office
  • Have a smile that will last a lifetime

THE DENTAL EXAM

During your exam, your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other health problems. Your dentist may also want to take X-rays to see what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. Whether these X-rays are traditional or digital, the images provided will help your dentist discover dental issues not visible to the naked eye.

PROFESSIONAL CLEANINGS

Your dental hygienist will begin your cleaning by exploring the surface of your teeth to determine if you have any cavities and to examine the quality of existing fillings. The dental hygienist will then perform a periodontal exam to make sure your gums adhere tightly to your teeth, and no periodontal disease or bone loss may be occurring. From there they will make sure your teeth get cleaned properly and professionally.

Dental Hygienist in Cincinnati

Your hygienist will carefully clean your teeth with a variety of tools to remove any hard mineral buildup (tartar) from your teeth. Then your hygienist will floss your teeth, use a polishing compound, and apply fluoride. Cleanings usually aren’t painful, but if you have any anxiety about your dental exam, be sure to let your hygienist know. They may offer several sedation options to ensure your comfort. If your dentist or hygienist finds tooth decay or gum disease, they will talk to you about changing your brushing or flossing habits. In severe cases, they may recommend antibiotics or other dental treatments. If your teeth and gums appear to be healthy, your dentist will probably recommend that you continue your brushing and flossing routine as usual.

Great experience. I have been to a few dentists and this one is the best! They are not too quick to recommend replacing crowns like some others. I had a crown replaced which I dreaded but it was easy and painless. The staff provides clear information and the office is very clean.

Just left a long appointment where Dr. Bartish and several assistants missed their lunch hour to make sure they took really good care of me in the dentist's chair--that's really putting patients first. Top notch dentistry, excellent atmosphere and people.

As wonderful an experience as visiting the dentist could be. Dental hygienist, Nicole, is an angel. Gentle and explaining every step. Dr Bartish is extremely knowledgeable, caring and informative of all procedures. Excellent rapport with all. Polite and caring staff. Dr Bartish took out old fillings that were so old they were ready to fall out. Did all dental work at one time...painless and not bad at all. Such a skilled, knowledgeable, great dentist. Staff is wonderful too!!
