What is teeth cleaning?

Regular dental cleanings are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. No matter your age, it is essential to visit the dentist on a regular basis for dental cleanings and exams. Staying current with your routine checkups can help you prevent dental problems like periodontal disease and tooth decay. During your teeth cleaning, our dental team will:

  • Remove plaque and tartar from the teeth
  • Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, radiant smile
  • Check for signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, and any other types of damage or disease

We will also speak to you about the benefits of fluoride treatment and review your oral hygiene habits with you. Our friendly team is happy to help you learn how to better floss and brush to keep your smile in good health. If Dr. Hoffman, Dr. Flicker, and Dr. Sher detect any dental problems that require further treatment, they will recommend the appropriate treatment to improve your oral health.

How often do I need a teeth cleaning?

In general, we recommend visiting us at Oradent Associates every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. If your smile is affected by certain conditions, we may suggest more frequent visits to make certain that you maintain good oral health.
