Dental Cleaning

For Optimal Oral Health

Excellent oral health requires a commitment to regular dental care. Just as practicing routine oral hygiene is integral to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, so too is scheduling dentist appointments for a comprehensive oral exam and professional dental cleaning. Visiting the dentist for cleanings twice each year can help you avoid a wide range of issues, including cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay.

Smile Pleasant Hill provides a complete range of dental services that cover all of your dental health needs, including routine, deep, and pediatric teeth cleanings. Our dentist in Lilburn can help you achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums for a bright, beautiful smile. Contact our general dentistry practice to schedule your dental cleaning appointment.

Types Of Dental Cleaning

Teeth cleaning, or dental prophylaxis is key for both tackling oral problems before they develop and preventing complications with existing dental work. Following an oral exam, your dentist will recommend one of the following types of dental cleaning procedures.

Routine Dental Cleaning

During a professional teeth cleaning, our dental professional explores the surface of the teeth and gums to identify any existing tooth-and-gum issues before removing plaque and tartar, polishing the teeth, flossing, rinsing, and inserting a fluoride treatment to help defend against cavities.

Deep Teeth Cleaning

Deep cleaning teeth treatments, or root planing, may be recommended for patients with signs of periodontal (gum) disease, those who have not received a cleaning in a while, and those with a buildup of plaque and tartar, bleeding gums, sensitive gums, or deep gum pockets, among other issues.

Pediatric Dental Cleaning

Dentistry for children is just as important as dentistry for adults. We recommend scheduling pediatric dentistry services, including bi-annual dental cleanings and exams, as early as 6 months of age to help children foster optimal dental health and good oral care right from the start.
