Get a Checkup That’s Anything But Routine

Chances are you’ll see us more for cleanings and exams than for any other service. So we make them as pleasant as possible:

  • We use ultrasonic cleaning and laser cleaning, both efficient yet gentle ways of getting your teeth their cleanest.
  • Many patients find our massage chairs relaxing. We can provide other comforts too, including blankets, warm towels, and aromatherapy.
  • If you’re nervous, we also offer sedation options to help you relax.

During your cleaning, our hygienist will clean and polish each of your teeth, making sure to reach those areas you might miss at home when brushing and flossing.

You’ll also get a complete dental exam to look for any problems such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer. Early detection and care for these problems makes treatment easier and more successful. If necessary, we may also recommend fluoride treatments and varnishes to help prevent cavities.

All in all, if you’re a new patient, you’ll spend between an hour and an hour and a half with Dr. Cody and your hygienist. You’ll leave our office with a fresh, clean mouth and feeling good about your decision to come see us.

Don’t delay in scheduling your dental cleanings and exams in Stillwater. Call Lift Dental today at 651-372-8444 to make an appointment. Take good care of your smile and you’ll enjoy it for years to come!

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

For most of our patients, a dental exam and cleaning will take about an hour. We’ll begin by asking you about any problems and possibly taking a set of X-rays. Your dental hygienist will then look over your mouth and perform a thorough teeth cleaning. Finally, your dentist will perform a complete dental exam and make any recommendations needed for a healthy smile.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

Luckily, there’s no reason to wait to eat after your cleaning. However, your teeth and gums may be a little sensitive. So, you may want to avoid extremely hot, cold, or acidic food and beverages for a few hours. Be sure to ask your dentist if you have any concerns about what you can eat or drink after your appointment.

Why should I get a dental exam if I’m not in pain?

If you wait until you are in pain, you already have a serious problem. On top of that, not all dental problems cause pain. By getting regular exams, you get the benefit of having dental professionals look at your mouth. We can identify potential problems or catch them in the early stages. That allows us to fix them before you may need expensive and invasive treatments.
