Cleanings

Routine dental cleanings are important to maintaining good oral hygiene. Professional cleaning by a hygienist can remove mineralized plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. We recommended you visit us for a cleaning once every six months.

Here are some general guides on brushing, flossing, and keeping plaque under control:

Exams and X-Rays

Simple, frequent dental exams are important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. They can help to avoid the financial costs associated with large treatment plans later on. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends twice yearly checkups for people of all ages. Going twice a year means most problems can be caught early on!

Tooth Whitening

Teeth discolor over years as our enamel wears down. Dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, starts showing through as the wear gets worse and gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Tooth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.

As a simple guide: any food that stains your clothes will also stain your teeth! But once stains occur, bleaching provides a safe method to return the whiteness to your smile.
