Brushing your teeth and flossing regularly is an important part of maintaining good oral health, but everyone can use a regular thorough cleaning from a trained professional. Our staff will make sure your teeth are free of plaque and tartar and will also check for cavities and other issues.
Before we begin your cleaning, a dental hygienist will examine your mouth for any signs of infection, decay, or gum disease. If they feel it’s okay to proceed, they will begin removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth with a scaler.
Once that’s completed, they will move on to brushing. Our hygienists use a special high-powered electric toothbrush to expertly clean your teeth. The next step will be flossing. While you should also always floss from home, we will be able to reach spots that you might be missing.
While you should have a professional teeth cleaning twice a year, we also recommend getting X-rays taken during one of your visits. This allows us to find any developing issues before they become worse.

If you have braces, you should definitely come in for your regular teeth cleaning as brushing can be even harder around the wires and brackets. Our trained dental hygienists will make sure to carefully work around your braces to clean your teeth while being careful not to break anything. We will also be able to thread the floss below your wires.

The length of your dental exam and cleaning will vary based on the condition of your teeth. More plaque and tartar buildup will lead to your dental hygienist needing more time to remove it. If you’re in need of X-rays, this will also slightly lengthen your appointment.
