Exams and Cleanings

When you visit Taunton Oral Health Center for your regular check-ups, you will receive a professional teeth cleaning and comprehensive exam. The cleanings that you receive from our dentists and dental hygienists differ from typical brushing and flossing. During your cleaning, you will receive:

  • Plaque and calculus removal to prevent gum disease and gingivitis
  • Teeth polishing to remove both plaque and superficial stains

It is very important to have your teeth cleaned on a regular basis by a dental professional. Only a dentist or dental hygienist can effectively remove all plaque and calculus from your teeth.

As part of your check-up, our dentists will perform a comprehensive oral exam. During this exam, we will evaluate the current state of your oral health and dental restorations. We will also perform screenings for oral cancer and periodontal (gum) disease to ensure that you remain healthy and safe. If we detect any signs of oral cancer or periodontal disease, we will take the appropriate actions to get you back to health.
