Checkups and Cleanings

At Miller Hill Dental, we strongly encourage regular checkups and cleanings for patients — as they greatly reduce the chance of small issues becoming large, costly repairs.

Our number one goal is to provide quality, gentle care – and we tailor each appointment with the patient’s comfort in mind.

During your checkup and cleaning, the things you can expect us to cover include:

  • A review of your medical history
  • A clinical examination of your soft tissue including gums, throat, tongue, floor of the mouth, palate, cheeks, lymph nodes, chewing muscles, and TMJ
  • An assessment of your gum pocket depths – any increase in gum pocket depths may indicate destructive elements in your gum health
  • An assessment of your hard tissue – which includes the teeth and bone that supports your teeth
  • Radiographs (or X-rays), if necessary, in order to diagnose decay, fractured teeth, infected teeth, cysts in the bone, resorption of teeth and an array of bone and tooth anomalies and diseases
