Dental Cleanings

Routine dental cleanings are important to maintaining good oral hygiene. Professional cleaning  can remove mineralized plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. It is recommended that you have a cleaning once every six months.

How it's done
You can expect your dental cleaning to last between 30 minutes to an hour.  Most people find that dental cleanings are painless, and do not cause any discomfort.

There are two important steps to a dental cleaning. The first step is scaling the teeth. This is the removal of plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces. This can be performed by hand or with an electric scaler.  

The second step is polishing the teeth to remove any final plaque or debris
