Teeth Cleaning

Dental Cleaning

Our team of professionally trained dental hygienists provide scaling, root planing, polishing and fluoride treatments ("dental cleaning") at intervals suitable to your personal needs. 

What is Teeth Cleaning?

When we clean your teeth we remove soft deposits such as plaque and hard deposits such as tartar, calculus, or stains from your teeth. The primary purpose of having your teeth cleaned is to prevent the progression of periodontal (gum) diseases.

How often should I get my teeth cleaned?

Healthy children and adults should have their teeth cleaned at least once every 12 months, but we treat our patients individually.  If you are at greater risk of periodontal diseases because of tobacco use or personal oral hygiene practices your teeth may need to be cleaned more often. We can help you determine how often you should have your teeth cleaned.
