Your Exam and Dental Cleaning in Seattle, WA

If you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, or ever, that’s okay! We are here to help you keep smiling, and we will never judge you or pressure you into dental treatment. 

When it comes to maintaining your smile, we strongly encourage our patients to get regular checkups and cleanings, every six to 12 months. Your dentist may recommend a different schedule, depending on your oral health needs or if you’re getting treatment for a specific condition.

  1. Check your teeth, gums, soft tissues, and jaws 
  2. Screen your teeth and gums for oral cancer and disease
  3. Check for any signs of decay and infection
  4. Clean your teeth and remove plaque build-up

Routine check-ups include full teeth cleaning and polishing you can enjoy the benefits of a clear and spotless smile. Dr. Bickel also checks any restorations you may have to see if they need to be replaced or repaired.

These regular visits to our dental office allow you and your dentist to stay up-to-date on your oral health and check for any potential dental problems. Dr. Bickel also discusses any treatments you may need and creates an individualized action plan based on your smile goal and oral health needs.
