Enjoy A Bright Smile With Dental Cleanings & Exams

50 % Only about 50% of adults go to the dentist 2x a year. Source.
Our dentists, along with the American Dental Association, recommend that you visit a dental office at least twice a year for a routine dental cleaning and exam. By coming to see us regularly, we can monitor your oral health and provide early treatment for any problems that arise.

If you’re a new patient to Bonita Family Dental, we’ll spend a little extra time with you. Below is what you can expect during your visit:

  • We’ll take a complete dental history, so we better understand your oral health.
  • A full set of X-rays will be taken so we can check for underlying problems.
  • Your hygienist will perform a complete dental exam. We’ll use an iTero scanner to check for hairline fractures in your teeth and a VELscope system to detect early signs of oral cancer.
  • We’ll give your teeth a thorough cleaning and polishing to remove plaque and tartar.
  • Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth, gums, and mouth and perform a periodontal screening to check for gum disease.
  • We’ll recommend any treatments needed to repair or improve your smile.
