Taking care of your teeth and gums is an important part of promoting good health. We recommend patients undergo teeth cleaning every six months (twice a year). Each teeth cleaning begins with a conversation about you and your dental hygiene. As part of our preventative approach we inspect your teeth and gums and take X-rays if we feel we need to investigate a particular area of your mouth.
During the cleaning we remove all plaque and tarter and thoroughly floss around each tooth. This gives a big boost to your oral health and significantly reduces your risk of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We complete the cleaning with polishing, which is a procedure that cleans the surface of the teeth, removes stains, and leaves your mouth feeling refreshed.
Our cleaning exams also check for the following:
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Any presence of oral cancer
- Condition of existing fillings and restorations
