One of the most important procedures we provide are dental cleanings, sometimes known as a prophy or prophylaxis. It is so important to routinely have your teeth cleaned by a dental hygienist and examined by a dentist. There are many areas of you mouth that are hard to reach with a toothbrush and floss. The hygienists are very meticulous in making sure that they clean all of the surfaces of the teeth that the patient cannot clean thoroughly on their own.
It is only after a patient’s teeth are adequately cleaned that a dentist can do a complete exam of the teeth and oral cavity. If seen by a dentist every six months, small problems like cavities can be fixed before they cause larger problems.
Our hygienests use various instruments and the latest technologies in ultrasonic scaling to comfortably clean our patient’s teeth.
