Cleanings & Preventative Care

Regular periodontal (gum) care by a registered dental hygienist is critical to maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile. Mineralized plaque (calculus) will develop over time even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to access.

During a professional cleaning, our patients receive:

  • Oral Cancer Screening
  • Oral Hygiene Instructions
  • Nutritional Counseling
  • Periodontal Full Mouth probing
  • Scaling and Tooth Polishing
  • Fluoride Rinse (when applicable)

Dr. Gilfillan recommends teens and adults have a dental examination and professional cleaning at least every 6 months.
