Achieve a brighter smile with professional teeth cleaning

During professional teeth cleaning, we remove plaque, a sticky film containing bacteria, food debris, and saliva. Our registered hygienists then remove tartar, which forms when plaque hardens on the teeth, using special tools, as regular brushing alone cannot eliminate it.

Finally, tooth polishing eliminates stains, resulting in a clean and bright smile. This comprehensive cleaning process helps maintain your overall dental health.

Every professional teeth cleaning will include:

  • Plaque Removal: Bacteria can form on teeth, forming a film that irritates gums. Your hygienist will use special tools during cleaning to remove plaque, preventing gingivitis or periodontitis.
  • Tartar Removal: Untreated plaque can harden into tartar, which is difficult to remove and can form below the gum line. Special instruments are needed to remove it.
  • Teeth Polishing: This process removes plaque or stains that regular brushing or scaling cannot remove.

Additional screening options:

  • Wellness scanning to record tooth wear and bite
  • Intraoral imaging to get a close-up view of occlusal surfaces and oral tissues
  • CBCT 3D X-rays to evaluate the airway, sinuses, jaw joints, and implants
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Orthodontic/braces screening

I came to this practice in a state of pure panic and chaos. From my first interaction over the phone, I immediately felt that I could trust their entire staff. The Platts are both very knowledgeable and skilled, and I am eternally grateful to them. They helped me overcome my dental anxiety and regain confidence in my smile. I live over an hour away, and they are worth the drive.

What a great dental practice! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming! Each room has a view of the beautiful botanical garden, which is stunning and relaxing. My dental hygienist, “Bonnie,” was so friendly and informative about my cleaning procedure. Dr. Platt is a warm and caring dentist who made me feel comfortable and welcome! I highly recommend this dental practice!

I came in as a new patient with a broken tooth, and Dr. Platt was ready within minutes to remove it pain-free. This was hands down the best dental experience I’ve had, and it will be my new dental office from here on out.

After having cancer in my jaw, I was very scared to see a dentist. Dr. Platt was incredible and made me feel like we were in this together. He heard me (and my fears) and gave me so many options that together, we could find a plan I was comfortable with. He is the first dentist I’ve gone to in 46 years, and it didn’t hurt, and for me, that’s huge! He’s allowed me to not be ashamed of my smile.

Absolutely fantastic!! I had an emergency, and Dr. Platt was able to see me within 90 minutes. He was able to extract the tooth right there. All the staff were friendly and provided excellent service. He is now my new dentist.

Dr. Ryan Platt was absolutely amazing! My daughter was seen by him instead of her regular dentist because he was on vacation, and he got her in right away and took care of her better than I could have imagined! She is only seven and had to get a tooth pulled right away. The fear in my daughter and myself took over, but Dr. Platt assured us both and cared for her with flying colors.
