Dental Cleanings

Beautiful smiles don’t just “happen” by chance. If you are fortunate enough to have a God given beautiful smile, much work is involved to maintain it for a lifetime. Professional cleaning by a hygienist can remove mineralized plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. This is especially true of areas below the level of the gums. Here at Palmetto Smiles, we would like to see you for a cleaning once every six months unless you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease. How it's done: You can expect your dental cleaning to last between 30 minutes and an hour. A dental hygienist will do the professional cleaning and Dr. Houston will come in for an exam at the end. Most people find that dental cleanings are painless, and do not cause any discomfort. Anesthesia is available for patients who feel they would be more comfortable with it.
