Cleaning and Prevention

Preventing dental problems is a priority to our team.  We recommend that all patients have at least biannual cleanings and examinations.  Not only do proper dental cleanings help you avoid dental problems before they arise.  They help your gums heal, give you fresher breath, and leave your teeth looking more brilliant.   A professional cleaning removes hard calculus and plaque that is not removed by regular brushing and flossing alone.  We also apply prescription strength fluoride to strengthen your teeth and polish to remove stain and rejuvenate the appearance of your teeth.  If you have not been able to see a dentist and have not had your teeth cleaned for years, we are here to help you get back to great dental health.

What are some preventative measures I can take?

  • Brush with a fluoride toothpaste

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush after each meal

  • Floss daily before bedtime

  • Use an oral rinse after flossing

  • Avoid sugary foods, coffee, and tobacco
