Dental Cleaning

The cornerstone of dental health hinges on maintaining stable, healthy gums and the surrounding bone structure of the teeth. Just as the foundation of a home is vital for its durability, the gums play a crucial role in supporting the teeth. Gum disease stands as the primary culprit behind tooth loss.

During your initial visit, we assess the condition of your gums, examining tissue health and tooth stability. As long as your gums are healthy, routine cleanings every six months should be appropriate. These cleanings involve thorough removal of calculus (tartar) from the teeth and polishing stains, usually completed within a one-hour appointment. Establishing and adhering to this regular cleaning routine contributes to the best outcomes in maintaining optimal dental health.

For areas that have deeper pocket depths of 4 to 12 millimeters, normal cleaning is not enough to get back to health. Once pockets get deep, even good cleaning at home can not get past 2-2.
