Cleanings (Prophylaxis)

In addition to daily oral hygiene practices, regular cleanings by a dental professional are vital to keep your mouth healthy. When you come into our office for a cleaning, one of our hygienists will work with you for 30-60 minutes.

A dental cleaning involves brushing and flossing just like normal but we will also remove tartar buildup and polish your teeth. If the cleaning is part of your yearly checkup, we’ll probably take X-Rays to check for cavities.

Dr. Orobitg will come around and check your gums for signs of gum disease and will look over your teeth and mouth to assess your overall oral health.

In all, a dental cleaning is generally a painless, simple, and fast procedure that plays a big role in keeping up high oral standards.
