Cleanings and Exams
Perhaps the single most important thing you can do for your oral health is the regular and routine cleaning of your teeth. Brushing and flossing at home are a fantastic start to the total health of your gums, teeth, and mouth. However, the build-up of plaque and stains over time is inevitable, and can cause harmful deposits that, if left unchecked, can lead to tartar build up, tooth decay and gingivitis.
Dr. Eric Berkner and our professional team here at Ponderosa Dental Arts use a miniaturized ultrasonic scaling procedure to remove the built-up plaque and stains in areas that you cannot reach with brushing and flossing alone. Our dental lifestyle plans are specially formulated to include teeth cleanings every six months, to allow us to perform this simple and painless procedure. In the words of Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” And never has there been a truer statement! Our in-depth cleanings are a simple procedure that can quickly and efficiently keep your teeth sparkling and trouble-free.
