Make Professional Checkups Part of Your Dental Care Routine

Roughly 1 in 4 adults has untreated cavities at any given time. That may come as a surprise, but it also explains why we emphasize preventive care as part of our general dentistry. When you come in for a cleaning and exam, we are doing all we can to keep your teeth healthy and your smile complete. This may include:

  • Ultrasonic Cleaning – This is a highly effective and more comfortable alternative to metal scalers. You can remove tartar from your teeth without extensive scraping.
  • Digital X-Rays – X-rays help us monitor changes in your smile and can reveal decay before it is visible to the naked eye. Digital X-rays use a fraction of the radiation of film X-rays.
  • Dental Sealants – These coatings function as a shield to defend your teeth against cavity-causing bacteria.
  • Fluoride Treatments – To make your teeth stronger and more resistant to decay, our team can apply fluoride during your appointment.
  • Oral Cancer Screening – When we look at your mouth, we aren’t just looking for cavities and gum infections. If we see something abnormal, we want you to know so you can get tested.

Do something good for yourself and your smile! Schedule your dental cleanings and exams in Johns Creek, GA at Shawn A. Walls, DDS. Call 678-797-7793 if you are a new patient, or contact us at 770-813-0079 if you are an existing patient.

Common Questions

Do dental cleanings hurt?

In the skilled hands of hygienists and dentists at Shawn A. Walls, DDS, a cleaning shouldn’t hurt. We always use a gentle touch, as well as comfort-enhancing equipment like an ultrasonic scaler. Cleanings may be a bit uncomfortable if you haven’t had one in a while. That’s because we may have to apply more pressure than usual to remove the tartar buildup that has formed. We can use local anesthesia to make you more comfortable, and dental sedation is also available.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

To get the maximum benefit out of exams and cleanings, you should visit us every six months for these essential services. We remove the bacteria that causes disease and decay, lessening the chance you will suffer from cavities or gum disease. We also use digital X-rays to identify issues that may need attention.

Does insurance cover a dental cleaning and exam?

Most dental plans cover at least part of the cost of routine cleanings and exams, if not entirely. Since these are preventive measures, they can stop you from developing cavities or gum disease. This also gives us a chance to find and treat problems before they lead to more serious conditions with more complex and expensive treatment. With that said, you should review your policy to find out what is covered.
