Dental Checkups & Cleaning

in Palo Alto

Healthy teeth equate to good overall health, confidence, and beauty. And the best way to maintain healthy teeth is through preventive dental care. While brushing and flossing are necessary to maintain general dental health, regular dental visits help remove tartar and plaque buildup that are essential to keeping your teeth and gums in pristine condition. Preventive dental checkups and cleaning are also essential to identify and fix oral health problems before they become a concern. The American Dental Association recommends dental checkups every six months to help keep your teeth clean and healthy and identify dental problems early on before they become serious or painful.

Our dentists are known for their gentle style that’s relaxing and confidence inspiring, meticulous attention to detail, and patient and clear communication so you know exactly what’s being done.

So whether it’s been a while you’ve seen a dentist or are looking for a better dental experience, we invite you to book your dental appointment confidently with us at Cambridge Dental Studio.

What to Expect During Your Dental Checkup?

Dental Exam & X-Rays

During your preventive dental visit, our family dentists in Palo Alto will perform an oral exam to check your gum and teeth health. Depending on the condition of your oral health and frequency of your visits, our Cambridge Dental Studio dentists may also do a dental x-rays to look for oral health concerns, such as cavities, gum disease, and bone loss, that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Teeth Cleaning

A dental hygienist will clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar that can build up and lead to cavities, bad breath, and more serious periodontal diseases. The hygienist will also floss your teeth. Finally the dentist will provide you with tips on good oral care, including the right way to brush and floss your teeth.

Fluoride Treatments

After the cleaning, the hygienist will apply fluoride treatment to your teeth. Fluoride is a mineral that protects your teeth and prevents cavities and decay.

  • Dr Yen is a great dental care provider. I have recommended him to people at work. His advice is conservative, honest which is hard to find in dentists around this area. He is generally happy and cordial with all his patients. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Alex Yen is an awesome dentist!! I've been going to him for a few years now and every time it's been a great experience. The staff is very friendly and the dental assistants always do a great job. I got a teeth whitening procedure done which isn't the most comfortable thing to have done, but it went by super fast and was done well. Dr. Yen always explains what he sees on X-rays or with your teeth so it's easy to understand. He also encourages and teaches best practices so you keep your mouth clean in between visits. Definitely recommend!

  • Alex Yen is a fantastic dentist. I initially only went to him for a cleaning, but he noticed some white spots and stains on my front teeth that had bothered me for years and offered a few options for how to fix them. I went back recently to have that done, and he did an awesome job. My teeth look perfect, the process was quick (took ~45 minutes), and I no longer feel self-conscious about how those teeth look. Dr. Yen is confident and professional and explains clearly what he is doing. His services are very affordable. I'm a Stanford grad student on Cardinal care. My cleaning was free, and 3 sealants plus the cosmetic procedure were only $150, even with minimal coverage from my dental insurance. The front desk is helpful and friendly, and they respond promptly to questions about scheduling, cost estimates, etc.
