How Oral Hygiene Cleanings at Westgate Family Dental Work
Our dental hygienist cleans your teeth and gums in three steps!

  • Step 1

    Our dental hygienist checks your mouth to ensure no issues are present before proceeding. Using a small mirror, our hygienist can inspect hard-to-reach places that are usually difficult to see.

  • Step 2

    Once clear from issues, our hygienist will use a dental tool known as a scaler to remove plaque near the gumline and teeth. We will brush and floss to thoroughly clean each tooth.

  • Step 3

    After our professional cleaning, the cleaning is complete! We’ll provide fluoride treatment if necessary and will recommend tips for keeping your teeth healthy and clean at home!

FAQ About Oral Hygiene Cleanings
  • What is a routine dental cleaning?

    Routine dental cleanings are professional cleanings completed by a dental hygienist or dentist. The American Dental Association and dental professionals recommend patients receive dental cleanings every six months. Not only do professional cleanings remove the buildup of plaque and tartar, but also give our hygienists and dentists the chance to address and treat dental problems before they worsen.

  • What are the most common oral health problems?

    Focusing on your oral hygiene is the best way to avoid oral health problems. Cavities and gum disease tend to be the most common oral health problems. While these dental problems can be treated with restorative dentistry treatments, maintaining your natural smile is always in the best interest of your oral health.

  • How do you take care of oral hygiene?

    Brushing twice a day and flossing thoroughly is a great ways to maintain your oral hygiene. In addition to maintaining oral hygiene at home, schedule routine dental visits for professional cleanings and exams. At Westgate Family Dental, we’re always happy to help new and returning patients achieve healthy, strong smiles.
