How do we Clean your Teeth?

  • Step 1: Imaging – taking images (x-rays) of your teeth so the doctor can look at the overall health of each tooth.
  • Step 2: Oral exam – our dentist will review these images and check on the teeth and gums for any concerns.
    Step 3: Polishing teeth – your teeth will be polished to remove stains, and smooth the surface of your teeth.
  • Step 4: Professional Flossing – Your teeth will then be flossed to remove anything left between them. This will help us indicate where gums may bleed and see any concerning areas.
  • Step 5: Fluoride treatment (optional) – you will be given the option to receive fluoride treatment to help your enamel strengthen and be protected against cavities.
