Have you booked your dental cleaning this year? Professional teeth cleaning not only maintains the shine on your teeth but also steps up your general oral health. While at-home brushing and flossing are excellent, they may not be effective in eliminating plaque that may invite bacteria growth in your mouth.

Furthermore, Dr. Eriksen tests your bite to rule out temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) symptoms. We provide numerous treatments for much-needed relief if you are diagnosed with TMD.
Here, your dentist uses a hand-scaler accompanied by an ultrasonic scaler to remove tartar and plaque buildup on your teeth and below the gum line.
Once Dr. Eriksen or Jessica (our all-star hygienist) removes all the tartar and plaque, they polish your teeth to restore the shine and eliminate any residue tartar. If need be, fluoride gel can be placed on your teeth to strengthen and cushion them against cavities.
If you are thinking about missing your dental cleaning, don’t. Professional cleaning yields many benefits, including:
