Dental Cleaning Services
We recommend that you have teeth cleanings no less than twice a year. Thorough tooth and gum cleaning is important because the oral cavity is where the digestive system begins. If you don’t take care of your oral health, it could lead to further, more serious problems in the rest of your body. Of course, brushing and flossing your teeth at home is important, but when you visit our dental office in St. Cloud, we will use professional instruments to take care of the bacteria that has been building up since your last visit for truly clean teeth. We can clean hard-to-reach areas with our state-of-the-art tools. Let us help you prevent tooth decay or gingivitis. Ongoing preventative maintenance is key!
During our tooth cleaning services in St. Cloud, we use a vibrating ultrasonic machine that loosens and removes plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth and gums. Then, we will gently scrape the inside of your mouth to remove additional plaque or tartar. We will then polish your teeth and always floss them as well. We can also provide a fluoride treatment, leaving you with smooth and clean teeth. Throughout the entire process, your comfort is our priority. You should not experience any pain or discomfort during this treatment, but if you do, never feel afraid to let us know during your cleaning so we can take measures to reduce your discomfort.
It’s common for patients to ask why they need regular dental exams. Although it may take some time to find a spot in your schedule, that time will prevent you from having to spend even more hours fixing major dental issues down the line. We also provide X-ray services that give us an inside look of what’s taking place under the surface of your teeth and gums. X-rays are incredibly useful, especially if you have hidden areas of tooth decay or growths such as a cyst or a tumor. By taking proactive steps towards your dental health, we can take corrective action and save you money and pain down the road with our thorough dental cleaning options.
