Exam and Cleanings

Preventive dental care is the practice of cleaning and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums even if there aren’t any problems develop. Preventive dental care will help you avoid gum disease, cavities, wear on your enamel, and other serious dental health issues. Perhaps you didn’t know that you do preventive dental care every day by brushing and flossing your teeth at least two times daily.

Brushing your teeth and flossing won’t cut it. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends everyone to see their dentist at a regular basis to help ensure everyone with healthy, clean, strong, and white teeth. Here at Parkwest Dentist, we urge our patients to establish a habit of visiting the dentist, and building this habit will help our patients achieve that perfect smile. Additionally, we urge parents to bring their children in so they can also build a strong dental hygiene as they get older.

Here in Parkwest Dental, our highly professional staff will ensure a proper dental examination and cleaning for every one of our clients. Our dentists will examine your oral health and search for uncommon imperfections while trying to identify any pathogens. After the examination is over, our dentists will discuss about the overall oral health, and evaluate what is to be done and create a treatment plan for the patient.

Take the test yourself:

Your gums are more pinkish (as it should normally be) or rather dark red?
When passing your tongue on your teeth do you feel something wrong?
1. Do you bleed when you brush your teeth?
2. Do you have bad breath?
3. Do you feel that your tooth is getting longer?
4. One of your loved ones has lost his teeth particularly early?


If you answered yes to any of the questions, be reassured. Modern preventive care can preserve the health of your teeth and gums. Luckily, the dentists and dental hygienists of Parkwest Dentist know how to prevent and treat these problems at the same time as providing you with the peace of mind!

Dental examinations and cleaning, and our other services, may be covered by dental insurances such as Medicaid or CHIP.
