The accumulation of plaque and calculus around the teeth and under the gums can cause a multitude of dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, and eventually tooth loss. That’s why we recommend that our patients make a cleaning appointment every 6 months in order to maintain good oral health.

What to expect during a cleaning

  • Periodic x-rays
  • Oral health assessment
  • Polish and floss teeth
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Oral hygiene education
  • Exam by dentist
  • Fluoride treatments and sealants may be recommended
