Routine Exams & Cleanings
Prevent tooth decay and keep your oral hygiene in top-notch shape with our personal approach to dental care.
Clean Teeth + Healthy Gums = Happy YOU
Regular dental checkups are a must for good oral hygiene.
When tartar and plaque are left untreated, tooth decay forms. Routine dental visits allow us to spot and treat dental problems early on, ultimately preventing bigger—and more costly—issues further down the road.
At Third Street Dental, we love seeing new and repeat patients for routine exams.

Dental Cleaning & Exams FAQs
It’s not uncommon to have questions about a treatment. Here are the top questions asked by patients at Third Street Dental.
How Often Should I See a Dentist?
We recommend you come in for an appointment every 6 months. That gives us the opportunity to clean your teeth, examine your mouth for early signs of cancer, and treat tooth decay before it worsens.
Why Are Regular Exams So Important?
The earlier we can spot issues, the easier they are to treat. Oral cancer, in particular, has a much better outcome with early treatment.
