What does a dental cleaning consist of?

When you come in for an appointment, the dentist will examine your teeth for any signs of cavities or disease. He will also check the health of your gums and soft tissues to make sure you are in good health. Dr. Glenn Edens will also clean your teeth with special dental instruments and polish and floss your teeth. This will help prevent cavities and plaque buildup.

How often should I have my teeth cleaned?

It is recommended that you visit the dentist at least every six months. Having an appointment at least twice a year can help detect and prevent any problems before they manifest into bigger issues and will help keep your teeth looking and feeling great.

Why do I need a dental cleaning?

Normal brushing and flossing will help keep your teeth healthy, but a professional cleaning from Dr. Glenn Edens will remove plaque and tartar that a toothbrush is not capable of cleaning.
