Cleaning and prevention.jpg

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

Floss regularly

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.
