What can I expect during a dental examination at Main Line Dental Health & Wellness?

Drs. Jerald Matt and Naila Bryan will conduct a comprehensive exam to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. During the appointment, they will examine your mouth for any signs of decay or other abnormalities. They may also take digital x-rays of your mouth to look at the overall health of your teeth and gums. Our dental hygienists will then perform a scale and polish cleaning to remove plaque, and tartar buildup on your teeth, a dental cleaning typically referred to as a prophy, short for prophylaxis. Drs. Matt and Bryan will discuss their findings with you and any additional treatment options that may be recommended for maintaining good oral hygiene. If any concerns arise during the examination, such as periodontal disease or tooth decay, the providers at Main Line Dental Health & Wellness will work with you to create a personalized plan for care that addresses all your needs.

How often do I need a cleaning and dental examination?

Our team recommends an intraoral and extraoral examination and dental cleaning at least every six months, as typically recommended by the American Dental Association. Patients diagnosed with oral health issues such as tooth decay or periodontal disease may need regular visits every three to four months to undergo deep scaling and root planing or more extensive cleaning processes.
