At The Foleck Center, we are a full-service practice, and offer many services from dental implants to cleanings. We are the leading dentist in Coliseum Central, VA, and provide quality, personalized dental care to patients and families in the area. If you are looking for a dentist near you that provides exceptional dental care, we welcome you to visit The Foleck Center.

Dental Cleanings at The Foleck Center

Dental cleanings and exams are done in one appointment. The exams are done by our doctor, and the cleaning is done by one of our licensed and registered dental hygienists. Dental cleanings and exams take less than one hour, making this a quick and easy appointment for our patients. If the patient has a lot of build up or plaque on their teeth, additional treatment may be recommended, and your appointment may take longer. We welcome you to our office for your next dental cleaning and exam. Let our skilled team take care of your teeth and monitor your oral health.

What Should I Expect During My Dental Cleaning?

When you visit The Foleck Center for your dental cleaning our team will take x-rays. Your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and flossed, and we will check your gums for any signs of disease or gingivitis. Once your cleaning is complete, our doctor will come in and perform the examination.

During the examination our Hampton dentists will check for any cavities, cracks, or fractures. We also check any existing restorations to make sure they are in good condition and are not loose. Part of our exam is to check for oral cancer and ensure your mouth looks healthy.

We recommend patients visit our office twice a year for their dental exam and cleaning. For our younger patients, starting them out at an early age helps to teach good oral hygiene practice, and sets the stage for when they get older.
