We believe that a healthy mouth is a critical part of your overall health.

Healthy Mouth=Healthier You

Regular dental cleanings and exams will help you maintain and keep your natural teeth for life! Regular cleanings and exams can detect small problems before they become uncomfortable and expensive. A great way to keep your dental expenses affordable and your mouth healthy is to receive professional dental cleanings every six months.

If diagnosed with periodontal disease, however, you will need  to receive a particular type of cleaning and exam every four months. Regular periodontal maintenance is crucial for a healthy mouth and maintaining bone level.

Worried about Dental Cleaning Cost?

Most dental insurance covers preventative care, such as regular cleanings and exams at 100%. Remember, dental expenses increase as problems with the teeth and gums amplify, so regular cleanings and exams are imperative.
If you don’t have dental insurance, don’t worry. Coddington Dental provides easy-to-understand payment plans designed especially for you.

Regular Cleanings


Your professional dental cleaning will include:

The removal of calculus (tartar)

Calculus is a hardened plaque firmly connected to the tooth surface. Calculus can form both above and below the gum line, which enables it only to be removed with specific dental instruments.

The removal of plaque

Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins that inflame the gums, which could be the start of periodontal disease.

Teeth Polishing

Teeth polishing removes any additional stain and plaque not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling during dental cleanings.

Dental Exams

Our Lincoln family dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam after the cleaning at your dental visit.
One of our hygienists, Sydney, answers the most commonly asked questions during cleanings here:

This initial dental exam will include:

  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs) – an x-ray is essential to help determine tooth and root positions and to help detect decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.
  • An oral cancer screening- An oral cancer screening includes a check of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • A gum disease evaluation- A gum disease evaluation includes a check of the gums and bone surrounding your teeth for signs of periodontal disease.
  • An examination of all tooth surfaces to detect and check for decay (cavities).
  • An examination of all existing restorations to ensure quality and functionality.
