One of the most important steps toward maintaining excellent oral health is to have regular dental check-ups and thorough teeth cleanings. Our practice offers comprehensive oral exams and routine dental cleanings, as well as deep cleanings and fluoride treatments when necessary.
An average appointment ranges from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Dental cleanings are commonly covered by dental insurance.
Teeth can be cleaned 1 – 3 times a year or as directed by a dentist or hygienist.

The dental hygienist uses an ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque and tartar around your gums. This is normally the longest step.
Polishing and Flossing
Once clean of major plaque, a special toothpaste is used to scrub and polish your teeth to get them to their natural brightness. A quick round of flossing ensures all debris during the process is removed.
