Dental Cleanings are an essential component to maintaining your overall dental health.
By coming in on a regular six month schedule for a cleaning, you’re investing in your oral health and helping to prevent serious problems down the road (like gum disease and tooth loss).
These hygiene visits typically last anywhere from 30-60 minutes, and during this time, our dental hygienist will take the time to remove the plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth with specialty tools.
Our dental hygienist also evaluates your gum health and looks for potential signs of periodontal disease and receding gums. Polishing and flossing wrap up the dental cleaning portion of your visit.
An examination follows the dental cleaning. This is where Dr. Jabbour takes a more comprehensive look at your teeth, gums and surrounding bone structure.
