Expert Dental Cleanings and Preventive Care

Rely on Us for Thorough Exams

Your first visit to High Peaks Dental will include a thorough dental exam – including X-rays and education on home care – by the dentist, in order to make an initial assessment. A preventive plan will be put into action and you will come back for regular checkups.

Tooth Cleaning and Polishing

The cleaning will consist of removal of tartar, which has hardened on the teeth over time, along with the sticky plaque that has formed over the teeth. Plaque is a formation of bacteria and buildup that will eventually cause inflammation. 

The instruments and techniques we use will safely remove this buildup. Next, we will polish your teeth to remove stains and anything else that may have been missed in the cleaning.

Gum Evaluation and Treatment

Your gums and the bone supporting the teeth will be checked for disease.

Oral Cancer Screening

The lips, tongue, throat, neck, and gums are examined for any possible signs of oral cancer.


A full set of SAFE X-rays is performed. These are crucial for giving the dentist information that is not always seen in the exam. This information may include: 
  • Bone loss
  • Developmental deviations
  • Abscesses
  • Teeth coming in wrongly positioned
  • Tumors and other issues hiding within the teeth and gums
Early detection is important in treating many oral health issues.

Investigation of Existing Dental Work

The dentist and assistants will chart and make note of any existing dental work in your chart. The checking of current crowns, bridges, fillings, etc., is done to look for any damage or need for replacement work.
