The key to improving your overall health and reducing future dental costs is investing in preventive care. A quick appointment a minimum of twice a year is all it takes. While routine brushing and flossing at home is necessary to keep your smile looking its best, Issaquah Dental Health’s comprehensive exam and cleaning is essential. The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist every six months to ensure your teeth stay healthy and your smile stays beautiful.

MOST DENTAL INSURANCE PLANS COVER DENTAL EXAMS & CLEANINGS TWICE A YEAR!
Your hygienist will carefully clean, floss, polish, and apply fluoride to your teeth. Cleanings usually aren’t painful, but if you have any anxiety about your dental exam, be sure to let your hygienist know. During your exam, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and if there is a need, take X-rays to see what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. Our licensed, registered dental hygienists on staff have been trained in techniques to make cleaning as comfortable and painless as possible. Our dentist will then take the time to discuss any concerns and answer any questions.
