The accumulation of plaque and calculus around the teeth and under the gums can cause a cascade of dental problems like tooth decay, gingivitis, bone loss, halitosis (bad breath), and eventually, tooth loss. Routine cleanings in Williamsburg rids the mouth of harmful bacteria and ensures that you can enjoy a lifetime of exceptional oral health.
WHAT TO EXPECT
45 min – 1.5 hours
At Grand Street Dental in Williamsburg, we begin with a comprehensive examination of teeth and gums in order to create a treatment plan that is customized for your unique oral needs. Your examination will include low radiation digital x-rays to detect decay between the teeth, as well as an oral cancer screening. We then use both hand instruments and an ultrasonic scaler to gently break up plaque and tartar that build up below the gum line. Our team will also tell you what you need to know about home care between visits so that future cleanings will be effortless and easy.
