Professional Teeth Cleanings

Preventative Dental Services

Maintain Your Smile!

The happy, healthy mouth feeling you get after a good teeth cleaning is invaluable. Visiting a dental professional at least twice a year is an important part of your oral hygiene regimen. Professional teeth cleaning removes the tartar you just can’t get to at home, and regular exams will ensure your teeth and mouth are in good health.

Oral Health

Proper home care is the first step in maintaining your oral health. Professional cleanings every six months, or more frequently depending on the need are key. These visits are performed by a board certified dental hygienist trained in keeping patients maintained in optimum oral health.

Our dental hygienist uses special tools to remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from those hard to reach areas. They also reinforce or teach proper preventive home care techniques. Regular cleanings, at least every six months, insure that Periodontal health (that of the gums) is maintained. During these visits, Dr. Neal also performs an exam of the entire mouth to insure that oral health is properly maintained

Procedures usually include teeth cleanings, deep scale cleanings, and preventative exams to look for tooth decay and gum disease so that they can be diagnosed before they get worse.

Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are usually performed by Registered Dental Hygienists.  More detailed look on what your cleaning appointment will include:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface.  Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth.  It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva.  The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums.  This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that may linger during tooth brushing and scaling.
  • Dental Exam by Dr. Neal
