Dental Hygiene

At Clover Family Dentistry, we offer routine cleanings of the teeth and gums. During our routine cleanings, our dental hygienists will first check for periodontal health through a process called probing. Then calculus, the advanced stages of plaque, is removed from teeth. Finally, the teeth are polished for the final step of our routine cleaning.

During the routine cleaning, our dentists will evaluate your oral structures to check for any dental problems. Based on the evaluation and any dental needs, our dentists will propose a treatment plan to restore the health of your teeth and gums.

At Clover Family Dentistry, we believe that regularly scheduled routine cleanings work to prevent dental issues. We suggest that you schedule a regular dental checkup for a routine cleaning once every 6 months. There are various benefits of adhering to regularly scheduled routine cleanings:

  • Prevents gum disease
  • Prevents tooth damage
  • Enhances appearance of your smile
  • Prevents bad breath
  • Saves money in the long run
