Dental Cleanings & Dental Exams

Dr. Kiehl on Dental Cleanings and Exams Read Transcript

Dental cleanings and exams will probably be the services that bring you most often to our Nashua, NH dentist office. So Dr. James Kiehl, our other two doctors, and our staff make sure they take time to thoroughly examine you and address all your dental needs during your checkups!

To schedule dental cleanings and exams, call Nashua Family Dentistry at 603-546-7460.

Importance of Preventive Dental Care

You never want to take a “wait-and-see” attitude when it comes to dental issues! Ignoring problems like cavities, for example, can result in progressively more complicated and expensive treatments.

While we can usually fix a cavity with a simple tooth filling, a larger cavity will need a more extensive restoration like a dental crown. If the decay that created the cavity gets into the center of your tooth, it can become infected and require a root canal. With severe cases of decay, you may even lose your tooth.

During dental exams, we also perform screenings for:

  • Oral cancer
  • Gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults

Your First Dental Cleanings and Exams

At your first dental checkup, you’ll see one of our hygienists for a thorough dental cleaning and a full periodontal charting. This is a great time to discuss your current periodontal (gum) state and how we can treat any signs of gum disease, if necessary.

During your appointment, we also take X-rays and lots of intraoral photos. This will help us get a good idea of your current situation and let us know what we can do to improve your oral health. You’ll meet with one of our three doctors to discuss any concerns you may have and talk about treatment.

You’ll leave your appointment with a better idea of your current dental health and how we can help you improve it or prevent future problems. We recommend you see our trusted Nashua, NH dentist every six months for your dental cleanings and exams.
