Teeth Cleanings

First Visit

Once in our dentist office, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination to determine the current state of your teeth and gums. Our dentist will also review your dental records if any, as well as monitor your progress. He then will recommend which type of professional teeth cleaning is ideal for you.

Types Of Professional Teeth Cleanings


There are different types of teeth cleanings. When you visit our dental office, our dentist will perform a regular cleaning to eliminate the tartar and plaque buildup. However, you might need an additional or alternate cleaning depending on your current oral health. After your examination, our dentist will determine which method is better for you.

Following are the different types of teeth cleanings we offer:


Full Mouth Debridement

Our dentist will recommend this teeth cleaning procedure if regular teeth cleaning will not work in your case. Full mouth debridement eliminates hard tartar and plaque from your teeth and gums.


Periodontal Maintenance

Our dentist will recommend periodontal maintenance after you have undergone treatment such as deep cleaning. Continuing maintenance on your oral health is essential, as recurrences of gum disease or plaque can occur. Additionally, periodontal care removes tartar and plaque from below and above the gum line, deep cleans your teeth, and is followed up by teeth polishing.


Deep Cleaning

Our dentist will suggest deep cleanings if you have symptoms such as the buildup of tartar, plaque under the gums, bleeding gums, sensitive gums, deep gum pockets, and such. Our dentist uses tools that properly target these dental issues.


Regular Cleaning

A regular cleaning consists of our dentist eliminating stains, tartar, and plaque from your teeth. For patients with gum health issues, our dentist may recommend frequent visits for teeth cleaning.

What Can you Gain from Professional Teeth Cleanings


As mentioned before, the teeth cleaning process is crucial for your overall oral health. Some benefits of our teeth cleanings are as follows:


Cavity Prevention

Plaque is one of the several reasons for tooth decay. If plaque is not removed regularly, the build-up could result in cavities and deterioration of the enamel.

Improved Health
Numerous studies have determined a link between overall health and oral health. Regular teeth cleanings performed by our dentist can result in better overall wellness.


Tooth Loss Prevention

When gum disease spreads, due to plaque, it may damage the bone support in the jaw. This results in loose teeth and gradually results in tooth loss. This is one of the many reasons why regular teeth cleanings are beneficial for your oral health.

Great Breath

Professional cleanings, as we already know, help in maintaining your oral health. Good oral health means fresh breath and a beautiful smile.


A More Polished Smile

The stains on teeth are typically caused by smoking, wine, tea, coffee, etc. However, these stains can be prevented or reduced with the help of routine teeth cleanings.

Maintenance for a healthy smile

Depending on the current state of your oral health, our dentist will determine how frequently you should schedule an appointment for a professional tooth cleaning.
