A general cleaning will usually last approximately 60 minutes and then Dr. Jain will check for decay. This process rids your teeth of any built up tartar, plaque, and stains. She will then look for potential problems such as decay or periodontal disease. Our hygiene appointments involve a medical history update, digital images and photos with the use of digital radiography and an intra-oral camera when required, and a thorough screening exam for oral cancer, gum disease, bone health, bite abnormalities, and overall tooth health. We are committed to providing you with the most comfortable yet effective treatment possible!

Additional Services & Equipment Info
Digital Radiography: We are committed to providing safe and comfortable treatment to our patients. By using digital radiography, we can uncover hidden oral health problems while exposing you to half the x-ray exposure of traditional film x-rays. The image appears almost immediately, saving time for the patient. Digital radiography is also better for the environment as it eliminates the use of processing chemicals.
Digital Intra-Oral Camera: The camera is a tiny wand-shaped device that shows both Dr. Jain and the patient exactly what is happening in the mouth. It instantly transmits a crystal-clear, detailed image of individual teeth. This allows us to see and better understand a patient’s dental needs. We store all images on file to monitor situations as they progress.
