What is a dental cleaning?
A dental cleaning is one of the most basic dental services we provide at Alaska Dental Arts. The purpose of a professional dental cleaning is to thoroughly clean your teeth, which helps to prevent dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. In general, a professional dental cleaning is more in-depth than the cleaning you can achieve at home through regular brushing and flossing. During your teeth cleaning in Juneau, Alaska, our team will remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth. Tartar can only be removed by a dental professional, making it imperative that you visit our office regularly for your dental cleanings. We recommend that you visit Dr. Allen Smith for a teeth cleaning at least every six months. During these routine visits, we will also provide a gentle yet thorough dental exam. This allows us to diagnose any dental conditions and recommend the treatments you need to return your smile to optimal health. Our dentist and dental team will check for signs of cavities and tooth decay, gum disease, tooth damage, and other problems.
If it has been longer than six months since you last visited the dentist, we encourage you to contact us today to schedule your next appointment for a teeth cleaning and dental exam. We look forward to caring for your smile!
