The Benefits of Routine Dental Exams & Cleanings A mother holds her daughter during their routine dental exam.

Regular oral health cleanings can have massive benefits for your oral health, including the following:

  • Filling the gaps in your daily oral hygiene routine
  • Providing early diagnosis for gum disease, cavities, or oral cancer
  • Immediately treating underlying oral health issues 
  • Eliminating plaque and tartar


Plaque is a thin, white film of bacteria that food, beverages, smoke, and mucus deposit onto your teeth. Plaque buildup leads to tooth decay, chronic bad breath, and gum disease, along with a host of other dental problems. 

Eventually, deposits of plaque harden into tartar. This tough substance is difficult to remove without professional cleanings and leads to infection-harboring pockets between your teeth and gums.

Our Dental Exam & Cleaning Services

Preventive Dental Cleanings

Our North Miami Beach dentists recommend scheduling your appointments at our office twice a year. We’ll clean your teeth to rid them of plaque and tartar during these routine maintenance visits using specialized dental tools, advanced technology, and expert training. These cleanings can help prevent serious oral health issues when you add them to your daily oral health routine.

Diagnostic X-Rays

An essential tool in our office is our digital X-ray system. The X-ray images help us assess your children’s jaw development as well as monitor for and treat issues such as:

  • Tumors and oral pathologies


With digital imaging technology, we can instantly get a clear picture of your facial structure while exposing you to up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays.

Oral Cancer Screening

One of the most vital aspects of your routine dental exam is an oral cancer screening. Our dentists provide this service during every exam, making sure to assess even the subtlest signs of cancer and other oral pathologies. 

If we detect any symptoms, we’ll advise you about diagnosis and treatment options. Ask about your routine oral cancer screening at your consultation at our North Miami Beach dental office.

Frequently Asked Questions

Not at all! Dentists have extensive knowledge and experience in providing gentle, painless dental cleanings and exams. Your dentist can even apply a local anesthetic to ensure you stay comfortable throughout your visit. If you experience discomfort, this may indicate an underlying issue or condition, including periodontal (gum) disease or tooth decay.
Having your teeth cleaned and examined by a professional dentist is essential. It will protect your teeth from underlying problems and remove harmful plaque and tartar that routine brushing just can’t clean. Cleanings can also help your dentist to create a personalized treatment plan so that they can address any issues that may threaten your teeth like cavities and decay.
Children should begin seeing their dentist regularly as soon as their first baby tooth starts to erupt. Both plaque and tartar buildup can happen at any age, so developing healthy habits early is essential. If you need to register your child to begin receiving oral cleanings, reach out to your dentist so that they can protect their oral health and get started on developing good habits.
Most dental insurance companies can cover the cost of cleanings and exams. However, this may depend on your specific plan or policy. Be sure to reach out to your insurance provider beforehand so that you can get a more accurate understanding of your benefits. Your dentist may also provide financing options to help cover any out-of-pocket expenses you may have.
