Cleanings

Having healthy teeth and gums is important. Our approach to oral health maintenance and cleaning is extremely thorough. We consistently exceed insurance company and state guidelines for care to help you achieve optimum oral wellness.

As your partner in care we begin each visit with a conversation about you. We want to know about any changes in your health, needs for care, and desires for improvement.

To begin the physical portion of your cleaning, we provide you with a detailed head, neck and mouth exam to screen for oral cancer. We then show you around, giving you a tour of your mouth using our state-of-the-art, intra-oral camera so that you can see what we observe. We take time to explain to you what we see and share expertise about how you can keep your teeth and mouth healthy for a lifetime.

We commence your cleaning by measuring your gum pockets and checking for gum disease. We then remove plaque and tartar to help you prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. Finally, we polish your teeth, removing more plaque, tartar and mild surface stains. Once the hygienist has completed your cleaning, Dr. Schneider meets with you one-on-one to discuss any questions you may have and complete a final exam. We always encourage your questions and want to make sure you have all of the information you need to make the best choice for your personal wellness.

If you have put off dental visits, or just dislike the stress dental visits create for you, our team would like to help you create a less stressful plan for care. Please call our smile care team to schedule your complimentary sedation consultation at (949)380-0700.
