Regular Exams & Cleanings

At Briarwood Valley Dentistry, we seek to provide all our patients with the best in dental care when they stop by our Kalamazoo, MI office. Our goal is to give each of our patients a beautiful smile and that starts with our regular exams and cleanings. As your trusted Galesburg, MI area dentist, we’d like to take the time to outline the standard procedure you’ll undergo when you stop by for a regular exam.

Our Kalamazoo General Dentistry Procedure

We’ll begin the appointment by gathering information about your health and medical history. For new patients, we’ll start a new medical history for you. If you’re an existing patient, we’ll simply update our records for you. One of our trained and experienced staff members will then check your blood pressure and ask you about any issues you may be having with your teeth, gums, or mouth. We encourage you to ask us any questions that come to mind about common oral health topics, including:

  • Best Practices For Combating Bad Breath
  • Benefits & Recommendations For Teeth Whitening
  • Overcoming Tooth Sensitivity To Heat, Cold, or Pressure
  • Tips For Preventing Gum Disease
  • General Ways To Keep Your Smile In Its Best Condition

After you’re settled in, we’ll give your teeth a thorough cleaning that will take up the majority of the 40 to 60-minute appointment. During this process, a Diagnodent laser may be used if it’s believed that the condition of your teeth may need a check. This laser is used to detect and reveal even the tiniest of areas with weak or decayed enamel.
