Dental cleanings are important to maintaining proper oral hygiene. Emphasis on oral hygiene is a major priority. Professional cleaning by our hygienist will remove mineralized plaque that even with careful brushing and flossing, can miss, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach.
It is recommended you go in for a cleaning once every six months or as directed by our hygienist.
You can expect your dental cleaning to last between 30 minutes to an hour. Our trained hygienist will do the cleaning, and a dentist will come in for an exam at the end. Most people find that dental cleanings are painless, and do not cause any discomfort. Stressing these appointments are a top priority. At your cleaning appointment plaque and tarter will be removed from the tooth surfaces and your teeth will be polished, including the hard to reach places.
