Receive Thorough Cleanings & Exams From Our Team

During your first visit, your dentist will spend an hour with you, examining your mouth, identifying any dental issues, and asking you about the types of care and treatment that you are looking for from us.

After a thorough examination, you will also have your X-rays taken and your teeth cleaned. Newingham Dental Center uses:

  • Safe, low-radiation digital X-rays
  • Ultrasonic technology to fully clean your mouth, which eliminates any tartar or hard-to-remove plaque that we find
  • VELscope fluorescent technology to screen for oral cancer and any other abnormalities that a visual screening might miss
  • Preventive dental treatments such as fluoride

Though we provide extremely comprehensive dental exams and dental cleanings, you will be in and out of our office within 90 minutes to two hours.

We give you efficient and convenient treatment, and we try to be especially efficient during your first appointment. That being said, during your appointment you will have ample time to ask your dentist about your dental health, our services, and the treatments that you are looking for from us. Don’t hesitate to ask our staff any questions you may have. We are all happy to help!

Call 248-972-8720 to receive the highest level of care during your dental cleanings and exams in Birmingham. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

The length of these services may vary a bit, depending on whether we take X-rays or provide any preventive services like dental sealants. Usually, though, we can complete an exam and cleaning in about an hour. You may need to allow more time if it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a dentist.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

To keep your teeth and gums in the best possible shape, we recommend visiting our office every six months for dental cleanings and exams. This allows our team to remove bacteria-filled plaque before it can cause any serious problems. It also enables us to find issues like cavities and gum disease in their earliest stages, when they are easiest to treat.

What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

Both your dental hygienist and your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and entire mouth to look for signs of any problems. We may also take digital X-rays and images inside your mouth with an intraoral camera. Then your hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, paying special attention to areas you might miss at home. We’ll recommend any services needed to keep your mouth healthy.
