Your Dental Cleaning or Exam

A Customized Oral Health Plan

Reaching a full level of clean for your smile goes beyond the simple brushing and flossing of your teeth twice a day. After an initial assessment of your dental health Dr. Riar may suggest a few different treatment options to enhance your oral health and improve your mouth’s current level of clean. At your appointment one of our experienced dental hygienists will perform a deep cleaning to remove any hard-to-reach buildup of plaque, tartar or bacteria that could be responsible for  creating decay or cavities. To schedule your six month appointment give us a call at 661-832-1877 for a professional cleaning of your mouth, gums and smile.

Our Commitment to the

Latest Technologies

During your cleaning a small manual tool known as a periodontal probe checks for pockets around the teeth where bacteria may fall. If gum disease or pockets of bacteria are found in and around the gums a process known as root planing and scaling uses ultrasonic vibrations to “scale” or remove the buildup of bacteria for a healthier smile. This process is simple but may require the use of anesthesia or sedation dentistry enhance patient comfort throughout the procedure. To maintain healthy teeth between visits our team recommends maintaining a healthy dental hygiene routine, brushing and flossing twice daily.
