Dental Cleanings & Exams

Even if you brush your teeth two times each day, floss every night and eat a healthy diet, there is still no substitute for visiting our dentists for your regular dental cleanings and exams in Palatine, Illinois. These visits give Dr. George Skoog or Dr. Alla Shtilman the chance to remove the plaque, tartar and food debris that you could not reach on your own. Call Advocate Dental of Palatine today at 847-359-8732 if it is time for your checkup.

As a part of your oral health routine, we recommend that you visit our office for regular dental cleanings and exams. A dental cleaning involves the professional removal of plaque and tartar (also known as dental calculus) from the surface of your teeth. Additionally, our dentists may floss and polish your teeth to promote a healthier, more vibrant smile. This cleaning can help you avoid future tooth decay and harmful periodontal diseases.

As you meet with us, your checkup may involve the following:

  • Dental flossing
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Removal of tooth stains or discolorations
  • Screening for tooth decay or gum disease
  • X-rays to examine your overall oral health

In addition to your cleaning, our dentists can examine the situation of your oral health and help you determine the proper type of treatment needed to preserve and protect your smile. This may involve the use of digital X-rays, which enable us to view a closer look of your teeth and aid us in detecting hidden oral health issues.

These regular cleanings and exams are essential in furthering the overall health of your smile. We encourage patients to visit with us every six months to help avoid the risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease. You can get started by contacting us today for an appointment!

Patient Reviews

Dr. Skoog is very dedicated to his work and the well-being of his patients. On two different circumstances he was able to squeeze me in when he had a fully booked day. He is very good with understanding a patient’s apprehension of dentists. 🙂

- Sandy S.

So appreciative to Dr. Skoog for taking care of my husband’s terrible toothache during the holiday season. We are not patients of Dr. Skoog as we live out of state. He stayed late on a Saturday to alleviate my husband’s pain. We can’t thank him enough! Highly recommend.

- Ann M.

Great care! The office is usually on time or early. Dr Skoog is very good and offers a lot of services eliminating the need to go to multiple providers which saves time. All staff is professional and friendly as well they make you feel like your their close friend.
