Dental Cleanings

We take professional dental cleanings very seriously.

Good oral hygiene starts at home with brushing and flossing. However it is important to have cleanings done every three to six months.

Your cleaning appointment will consist of:

  • Calculus (tartar) removal: Calculus is hardened plaque that forms over time and becomes firmly attached to your teeth. Calculus forms both above and below the gum line. It must be removed by a professional with access to the necessary dental instruments.

  • Plaque removal: Plaque is a nearly invisible film that forms on your teeth. It forms from food debris and saliva. It is also a growing colony of living bacteria, producing toxins that can inflame your gums. This inflammation can signal the beginnings of periodontal disease, a disease that can affect your general health.

  • Polishing: During polishing, we will remove stains that are not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

  • An oral exam is done by the dentist which includes: 
    • an oral cancer screening
    • a periodontal exam to check the health of the gums
    • nutritional assessments and digital X-rays to check the hard tissues of the mouth, teeth, and bone around the teeth
