Dental Cleanings

This service in our office, also called a dental prophylaxis, is a professional cleaning you receive from our dentists or dental hygienists. Professional dental cleanings remove bacterial plaque, tartar and stain above the gumline to prevent gingivitis and periodontal disease. For most individuals, this treatment is recommended to be done at regular six-month intervals.

For patients with diagnosed gingivitis or periodontal disease, a more extensive therapy called scaling and root planing below the gumline is often necessary.
