Professional teeth cleanings every six months are a crucial part of a healthy oral hygiene routine- and a lasting smile. Performed by our experienced dental hygienists, dental cleanings help reduce the risk of oral disease by removing unwanted plaque and tartar buildup from hard to reach spots where your toothbrush cannot reach.
Brushing and flossing twice a day helps to maintain the health and hygiene of your teeth and gums in between routine dentist office visits. Good technique with your toothbrush and consistent flossing can make a positive impact on your oral health. Dr. Cheung and our dental care team can make personalized recommendations on how to improve your brushing and flossing skills. We believe that lifelong patient education is beneficial for you and your children.

The Importance of Routine Cleanings for Children
Children as young as age 1 should begin visiting the dentist for routine cleanings. Beginning oral care in the earliest stages of dental development can help set a foundation for your child’s lifelong oral wellness. Early visits also allow your young child to familiarize themselves with our office environment, reducing any stress they may experience during their cleaning or dental care.
Tooth decay is very prevalent among children and remains one of the biggest challenges in children’s dentistry today. With routine cleanings from Dr. Cheung, your child can drastically reduce their chance of getting a tooth cavity. We also offer dental sealants for children to protect their teeth and prevent dental caries from developing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Dr. Gauthier and the American Dental Association recommend patients of all ages visit the dentist every six months for a thorough dental cleaning.
Teeth cleanings are considered a routine dental procedure that helps to maintain your natural smile. Dental cleanings thoroughly clean all surfaces of the teeth as well as the gum tissue. Routine dental cleanings help reduce the risk of oral diseases including tooth decay and gum disease.
Dental cleanings are typically performed by one of our highly skilled and gentle dental hygienists. Our hygienists are trained to provide comfortable and efficient teeth cleanings. Patients are able to sit back and relax while their teeth are thoroughly cleaned. Your hygienist will talk you or your child through the process so that you are aware of what is going on.
Your hygienist will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gum line with the use of a small mirror and specialized tools. Next, they will use a high-powered electric polishing brush to polish your teeth. A gritty toothpaste is used and will leave your teeth shiny and smooth.
Most patients will not experience any pain during routine teeth cleaning. After a thorough cleaning, you will leave our office with a fresh, brighter smile!
