Dental Cleanings & Exams in Lincoln
What does it take to have a truly healthy smile?
Part of what it takes is regular brushing and flossing at home. Dr. Chris Haag and Dr. Claire Haag recommend brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once, and rinsing with a quality mouthwash.
But this is just part of what it takes to have a healthy smile. Regular dental cleanings and exams are also vital. That’s why our dental office in Lincoln, NE is proud to offer preventive checkups to patients of all ages.
How Often Should I Get a Dental Checkup?
We recommend visiting our office twice a year for routine cleanings and exams. If that sounds like a lot, just consider how frequently you brush your teeth. Everything we eat and drink contributes to the buildup of bacteria and plaque on our teeth and gums. Both contribute to the development of common oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Controlling their presence with frequent checkups will help you enjoy a lifetime of quality oral and overall health.
What to Expect
During your next checkup, your hygienist will begin by asking if you’ve noticed any changes regarding your teeth and gums since your last visit. We may also take X-rays of your smile before beginning your cleaning. With the X-rays we collect, we can gain a deeper understanding of your needs, allowing us to provide more personalized care.
Every one of your checkups will also include a full oral exam by Dr. Chris Haag or Dr. Claire Haag. The purpose of these exams is to look for signs of decay, disease, teeth grinding, and even oral cancer. If we find anything during your exam, we’ll discuss your treatment solutions with you and answer any questions you might have.

If it’s been more than six months since your last cleaning and exam, we invite you to call our Lincoln dental office to schedule your next visit. Pioneer Greens Dentistry welcomes patients of all ages from in and around the Lincoln area. We look forward to serving you!
