A routine cleaning (also known as dental prophy) is a procedure that removes plaque and tarter which can develop even with careful brushing and flossing.
During your initial or routine check-up we will take any necessary x-rays and evaluate your overall oral health. Dental x-rays are important as some dental problems can go unnoticed with little to no symptoms.
We recommend scheduling a routine cleaning and check-up every six months. This is to maintain your optimum oral health and avoid major dental problems such as the need for a dental deep cleaning..
