Cleaning and Prevention

The first step towards improved oral health involves regularly scheduled check-ups and dental exams. Digital x-rays are important for detecting dental cavities, bone loss, existing dental procedures, tumors, cysts, and tooth and root positioning.


A professional dental cleaning will be performed by the dental hygienist to keep your teeth looking great and preventing many dental diseases from worsening. It involves the following:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar) – Calculus is plaque that has been hardened and becomes attached to the tooth, causing bone loss and periodontal disease
  • Removal of plaque – Plaque is caused by the buildup of bacteria, food debris, and saliva on the surface of the tooth. It can irritate and inflame your gums, resulting in periodontal disease.
  • Coronal Polishing – A coronal polish helps remove plaque and teeth stains that could not be removed from daily brushing and flossing. A professional cleaning may also be unable to sufficiently reverse the progression of periodontal disease when it is already at an advance stage. A deep cleaning may be recommended in this case, which involves cleaning beyond the gum line and removing additional tartar, plaque, and bacteria.

Personal homecare involves eating regulated meals, brushing, flossing, and rinsing daily. Brush your teeth at least twice per day using an ADA-approved brush and toothpaste. Flossing is also recommended to clean between teeth and under the gum line. After you brush, it is important to rinse your mouth with water. This will help maintain a clean, problem-free smile. Finally, it is important to remember scheduling regular dental visits.
