Excellent dental preventive care requires Dental Cleanings & Exams. Even if you are faithfully brushing and flossing at home, Dr. Adam Bowen at Bowen Family Dentistry stresses the importance of regular dental visits. There are areas of your mouth that you cannot see and your toothbrush cannot reach. It takes a dental professional to do a thorough exam and cleaning.

Plaque and Calculus


Dr. Bowen will remove sticky plaque and stubborn tartar from your teeth, floss between your teeth, and polish your teeth to make them smooth and clean. Plaque and tartar cannot build up on smooth teeth, making bacteria more likely to be brushed away between dental cleanings in office visits.

What to Expect From Your Dentist at an Exam:

  • Inspect your teeth for any sign of decay or cavities
  • Check your gums for signs of gum disease
