We recommend routine dental cleanings for several reasons. When we perform professional cleaning, we remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. We also clean the parts of your teeth that are hard to reach such as underneath your gums.
After a cleaning, we will polish your teeth so that they shine! If needed, we will apply fluoride to your teeth. We will also preserve any artificial teeth (or teeth that have been restored).
After your cleaning, we will do a thorough examination so that we can see how your teeth are doing. We will look around to make sure you don’t have any problems that need to be taken care of. It is our goal to catch any problems and fix them before they become bigger ones. We will also go over home care if you need to change anything you are doing.
