Creating Confident Smiles

Dental Cleanings

Regularly Scheduled Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are typically done every six months with good oral health. During a cleaning, your teeth will be polished to give you a great smile, as well as helping to prevent future tooth decay and gum disease.

Teeth Cleaning Prevents Gum Disease

Prophylaxis cleanings are regular, routine dental cleanings performed to prevent dental problems such as gum disease or bone loss. Routine cleanings are recommended every six months to maintain a healthy mouth and smile. When you come in for a routine cleaning, our dental hygienist will check the health of your gums and teeth. The actual process of the cleaning will remove plaque, tartar and stains, and an expert polishing and flossing.

Dental Maintenance

Routine cleanings and dental maintenance are important to maintain optimal oral health. Regular brushing and flossing can help prevent large amounts of plaque and tartar from building up on your teeth. Seeing dental professionals twice a year is essential for removing what you cannot. Understanding that personal hygiene paired with regular routine cleanings are the most powerful ways to preventing gum disease. 

Periodontal Cleanings

Periodontal cleanings use scaling and root planing to complete what is called a deep cleaning. This is a nonsurgical cleaning used to treat gum disease before it gets out of control. Removing tartar buildup from the area between your gums and teeth and also from the roots of your teeth is crucial to keeping gum disease away. Deep cleanings are typically scheduled every three to four months. Periodontal maintenance will be recommended to prevent future oral health issues.

Dental Debridement

Dental debridement is another method of treatment that is used if you have not been to the dentist in over a year and have a thick buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth that has gotten below your gumline. Debridement isn’t so much a cleaning but a procedure the dentist performs to accurately assess the condition of your gums, bone, and teeth.
