Dental Cleanings/Recare

Routine dental health maintenance is very important for good oral hygiene and
overall general health. Recent research has proven a link between a patient’s
oral health and their general well-being, including a connection to heart
attack, stroke, healthy newborns and insulin control for diabetic patients.
Professional cleaning by our hygienist will remove bacterial plaque and tartar
that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas
that are hard to reach. It is recommended you schedule a recare appointment once
every six months. .

How it's done
You can expect your recare appointment to last between 30 minutes and an hour. Our hygienist will address any preventative maintenance needs, and Dr. Esselman will thoroughly evaluate your dental health and cosmetic concerns.
 
Current X-Rays ( bitewings, periapicals and/or panarex) are required to
accurately diagnose and treat our patients. The hygienist will scale the teeth
to remove plaque and tartar from both above and below the gumline. This is
accomplished with hand scalers and/or ultrasonic scalers. Finally the hygienist
will polish the teeth to remove biofilm and stains .
