Cleaning & Whitening

Your dental hygiene appointment involves the following:

  • Oral, Periodontal and Dental Exam

At your first visit, you will be asked to fill out a health and dental history that we will review together. If you have dental insurance please bring it with you.

The examination will include a thorough examination of the oral tissues, an oral cancer screening, a measurement of the health of your gums and the recording of any existing restorations or enamel defects.

  • Scaling and Root Planing

Your dental cleaning will involve the removal of harmful hard deposits on your teeth, also known as tartar.

  • Dental Polishing

After scaling and root planing is completed, a polish is recommended to remove remaining plaque and surface staining.

  • Fluoride Application

Fluoride is applied to the teeth after the polish to help mineralize the teeth and protect against cavities.

We also offer Zoom Whitening.
