Our hygienists are the BEST!
They take a personal interest in their patients, and with great pride coach each person to achieve optimal health.
During your dental cleaning appointment, your hygienist removes plaque and calculus that have built up on your teeth since your last professional dental cleaning.
Even though a cleaning is a simple procedure, it plays an essential part in maintaining good oral health. The removal of deposits from your teeth helps prevent dental diseases that result in cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Getting a dental cleaning is a preventive measure on your part to avoid dental problems that result from deposits on your teeth that cannot be removed by regular brushing and flossing.
Your hygienist will also discuss with you:
- effective methods for tooth brushing and flossing
- nutritional counseling
- recommendations for future treatment
- gum concerns
- restorative options
- when to return for follow-up hygiene treatment
- and options for teeth whitening and take the current shade of your teeth.
It is recommended that cleanings be performed a minimum of twice a year, unless otherwise specified by your hygienist.
Our office also offers professional denture cleanings for patients will full or partial dentures. Your regular dental checkup will include having your dentures thoroughly cleaned, an examination of the inside of your mouth to make sure it’s healthy, and a check-up by Dr. Fried to ensure that your dentures fit properly to avoid any irritation, sores, infection, slippage, and discomfort.
