Dental Cleaning What to Expect
During your cleaning, we will gently scrape any plaque that has built up along the gum line and then polishes the teeth with a fluoride toothpaste. We will complete the process by flossing the teeth and showing you how to effectively brush and floss at home.
Your dental hygienist will offer personalized advice for taking care of your smile between visits, especially if you are at an increased risk of developing gum disease or tooth decay.
