Dental Cleaning

A dental cleaning (or “prophylaxis”) is a professional cleaning you receive from a dental hygienist. Most cleanings take 60 minutes for adults, and 30 minutes for children 11 and under.  Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque and tartar buildup.  Left untreated this can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay.  During your routine cleaning we will remove excess plaque and polish your teeth to remove any stains for a brighter smile.
