Dental teeth cleanings are part of the regular dental examination at Patrick Toms DMD. We believe that routine cleanings are one of the best ways to provide our patients excellent preventive care through thorough assessment of their oral health.
What To Expect At a Regular Cleaning
During our teeth cleanings, we will perform the following:
- Brush and floss your teeth.
- Remove excess plaque and tartar.
- Assess the health of gum tissue.
- Monitor bone density in teeth and jaw.
- Complete dental X-rays as needed.
- Conduct an oral cancer screening.
During these dental cleanings, we can also assist you with your personal hygiene habits. Whether that’s helping you select the best toothpaste or teaching you how to properly floss teeth, we are here to help you form the best dental habits possible.
