Dental cleanings and exams are essential components of maintaining excellent oral health, and at our office we offer comprehensive care that includes routine cleanings and exams as well as scaling and root planing and deep dental cleanings. We prioritize preventive treatments to keep your smile healthy and vibrant, and our dedicated team will go above and beyond to ensure your oral wellbeing.

During your appointment, we will start by performing a professional teeth cleaning, which involves the removal of plaque and tartar buildup. However, if we detect signs of gum disease, such as deep pockets or inflammation, we may recommend scaling and root planing. This non-surgical procedure involves a thorough cleaning below the gumline to remove bacteria and tartar from the roots of your teeth. It helps eliminate infection, reduce gum inflammation and promote gum tissue healing.

In addition to scaling and root planing, we may also recommend a deep dental cleaning if you have significant tartar buildup or signs of advanced gum disease. This procedure involves a more extensive cleaning of the teeth and gums, targeting hard-to-reach areas that regular cleanings may not address.

Alongside the cleaning procedures, your dental exam plays a vital role in identifying any potential dental issues or diseases. Through a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums and oral tissues, we can detect cavities, gum disease and other oral conditions in their early stages. This allows for prompt treatment and prevention of further damage.

We emphasize the importance of regular dental cleanings and exams to maintain optimal oral health. Depending on your unique needs, we recommend scheduling visits every six months or more frequently if required. If you experience a dental emergency or any discomfort, please don’t hesitate to contact our office for immediate assistance.

To take the first step towards a healthier smile, schedule your next appointment with us today. Our dedicated team is committed to providing exceptional care and helping you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile through comprehensive dental cleanings and exams.
