Cleanings & Gum Care

The current state of your dental health is as unique as you are, so we offer a variety of cleanings and gum care to suit any patient. Regular cleaning and exams, along with good home care, are paramount to your dental health.

Dr. Haag and our dental hygienist, will regularly assess your teeth and gums to keep you on the recare plan that is right for you. We recommend most of our patients have their teeth cleaned every six months.

For some patients, it has been a long time since their last visit to a dentist. In these cases, we often need to do a deeper cleaning. This is necessary if there is a large amount of plaque or calculus built up on the teeth. A deep cleaning generally takes two appointments. Our hygienist, uses local anesthetic to put the area to be cleaned asleep, which allows her to thoroughly clean the area without causing discomfort to her patients. Upon completion of the deep cleaning, maintenance cleanings are recommended every 3-6 months, depending on the severity of the case.

If you’re due for a dental check-up, or even if it’s been a while, give us a call. We’re here to help!
