Dental Cleanings

You can expect a painless and even relaxing teeth-cleaning session every six months. The American Dental Association and your Santa Monica dentist recommend twice-yearly dental checkups and teeth cleanings.

Teeth cleanings are essential even if you brush and floss regularly.

Dental Cleaning in Santa Monica, CA

Teeth cleanings mean relaxing in one of our comfortable dental chairs while the hygienist clears tartar and debris from your teeth. With our special dental tools, we can get to the hard-to-reach areas of buildup and remove stubborn tartar that your toothbrush can’t clear. The tools are noninvasive, and the cleaning is painless.

Your hygienist also does a periodontal check and discusses potential issues with the dentist. The hygienist may talk to you about fluoride treatments or dental sealants to help protect your teeth from decay.
