Prevent Cavities

Better Overall Health

Poor oral health has been linked to a range of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Good oral hygiene practices can help promote better overall health.

Teeth Cleanings

Professional cleanings remove built-up plaque and tartar, which can’t be done with at-home care. Tartar can’t be removed with brushing, and can only be removed with professional tools. During a cleaning, our hygienists will go over each tooth, removing any build-up. They will get between the teeth and under the gum line to restore the condition of the teeth.

Tooth Polish During Cleaning


At our dental office, we will remove any debris or buildup in the pockets so that bacteria won’t destroy the gum and jawbone. These treatments are extremely beneficial and are highly recommended to those that present with red gums, those that bleed when brushing, or those that aren’t avid flossers.

Tooth Polish During Cleaning


Fluoride treatments aren’t painful and are an additional step that can be taken after cleaning is performed. Your dentist will apply the fluoride paste or gel to the total surface areas of the teeth. Fluoride can prevent tooth decay, can reduce tooth sensitivity, and will keep your teeth healthier.

Healthy teeth for life

When your gums and teeth are healthy, there is just less to worry about. With routine oral hygiene services, tooth decay can often be prevented. Tooth decay can cause tooth loss or require primary corrective services to eliminate the decay and repair the tooth. Preventive dentistry solutions including cleanings and fluoride treatments, which can stop these things from happening, and assist you with having the healthiest smile possible, for life.
