Receiving a teeth cleaning from our friendly and knowledgeable dental hygienists is a very important part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums!
Most dental cleanings take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour and are vital to removing plaque and tartar buildup, which can’t be fully and thoroughly removed without professional assistance. If these damaging substances aren’t removed, they can eventually lead to gum disease and a whole array of tooth problems. It’s recommended that you receive a teeth cleaning every 3 to 6 months.
During your tooth cleaning, your mouth with be examined for inflamed or bleeding gums, tooth infections, decay, sores or any other concerns. Once the hygienist is finished with the initial cleaning, Dr. Jose Lopez will then evaluate your mouth, including a cancer screening and a review of the teeth, gums, and any concerns you may have.
