Cleaning and Prevention
We believe prevention is the best medicine. Regular cleanings and examinations are the best way to curb dental problems before they arise. A professional cleaning or "prophy" leaves your gums healthier and your teeth whiter. Even if you haven’t had a cleaning in years, it’s never too late to treat your mouth.
What should I do at home?
Use a toothpaste that contains fluoride
Brush with an electric toothbrush
Use an oral rinse containing xylitol
Avoid sugary snacks and acidic drinks
Your x-rays and examination will determine the type of cleaning you need. If you have periodontal disease a “prophy” is not enough for you. You will need a periodontal cleaning and maintenance program instead.
