Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
To keep your teeth healthy, our doctors recommend patients keep a consistent preventive maintenance schedule with dental cleanings at least twice a year. Our gentle preventive cleanings are designed to help patients prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and costly dental procedures in the future. Depending on the findings of your dental exam, we may recommend more frequent, targeted cleanings.
During every cleaning, our team uses state-of-the-art technology and dental tools to ensure efficient, comfortable care for every patient. Our team works to eradicate plaque, remove stains and discoloration, and gently polish the teeth. In some instances, we may recommend an additional mineral treatment to further strengthen the teeth.
Walnut Creek Dentists can help you find the best tools to enhance your daily hygiene routine and enhance the results of your professional cleanings. Our team we'll help you find the best tools for maintaining your oral health at home, including special toothpastes, rinses, and even flossing aids designed to keep your unique smile bright and healthy for years to come.
We'll always provide the tools and education you need to optimize your oral health between appointments!
Oral Cancer Screenings
At each visit, our team performs a complete health history review and notes any changes (even subtle ones). Even the smallest change in the soft tissues of your mouth will be examined closely. Early detection of oral cancer saves many lives each year, and our team is highly trained to detect even the smallest abnormality.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. But it doesn’t have to ruin your smile. A targeted, strategic cleaning schedule and a dedicated home care regimen can help keep this chronic condition under control.
