Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are the bedrock of what we do, allowing us to remove the plaque, tartar, and even bacteria that can deteriorate your gums and teeth. Learn about the two kinds of dental cleanings we perform at our office.

Our Dental Cleaning Process

During a dental cleaning:

  • A dental hygienist will clean and polish your teeth.
  • A dentist will perform an examination.
  • Periodontal charting and diagnostic radiographs may be taken as necessary.
  • We’ll provide advice regarding home oral care and answer any questions you have.

These check-ups are an essential part of your dental care, allowing us to ensure that we catch issues in their early stages when they’re easiest to correct.

Along with our adult dental cleanings, we also provide pediatric dental cleanings.

Periodontal Cleaning

If your gums are inflamed, you may be suffering from gingivitis or periodontitis. We’ll perform scaling and root planing to remove the inflammatory material. While this is typically performed by hand, ultra scalers make patients' process quicker and easier.

Once we’ve completed the procedure, we recommend getting periodontal cleanings every three to four months. This prevents your gums from being further inflamed by any plaque or tartar.
