Teeth Cleaning at Our New Orleans Office
Committed to Maintaining Your Healthy Smile
Twice-yearly checkups and dental cleanings are recommended to keep your teeth and gums healthy. These proactive cleanings reinforce the care you give your teeth at home and can catch early signs of periodontal disease, cavities, and oral cancer. Having your dentist regularly inspect your teeth ensures that your dental team is familiar with your mouth and oral health, making it easier to catch problems before they lead to more serious infections or tooth loss.

What to Expect During Your Cleaning
A dental cleaning removes any plaque or tartar that has built up around your teeth. Regular brushing and flossing are important, but they can’t always catch every bit of buildup, which is why it's necessary to have your teeth professionally cleaned regularly. You may also wish to speak with your dentist about cosmetic issues you have with your teeth, such as stains, chips, or gaps.
Your cleaning will also include:
- Medical history review and update
- Measuring of gum tissue and gaps to assess progression of gum disease
- Visual oral cancer screening
- Fluoride application, as needed
- Sealants for younger patients
- Teeth polishing
At the end of your dental cleaning, we may recommend visits to a specialist for any specific concerns. We will also provide thoughtful guidance and instruction for your continued at-home care. Our job is to make sure you feel comfortable in our office, knowing that we care for you as our patient and want what is best for your dental health.
