Professional Teeth Cleaning Is a Key Part of Your Oral Hygiene Regimen

Are you one of those people who believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? If so, you probably brush and floss your teeth regularly, and you deserve a pat on the back for that. However, even the most rigorous at-home oral hygiene regimen should be paired with routine professional teeth cleanings. If you’re in the Shorewood, Illinois, area, you can feel confident turning to Lakota Dental for a full slate of family dentistry services, including cleanings from our highly qualified dental hygienists.

We offer two main types of tooth cleaning: standard, typically scheduled every six to 12 months, and deep cleaning services, also referred to as scaling and planing. We welcome children and adults, and we take pride in delivering high-quality dental services with a healthy dose of TLC, so our patients have the best experience possible no matter why they visit Lakota Dental.

Which Type of Dental Cleaning Is Right for You?

For most patients, we recommend standard teeth cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis, which is intended to prevent problems like cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and tooth loss. Our preventative cleaning services address the teeth at and above the gumline. Combined with your regular dental checkup and at-home brushing and flossing, this type of teeth cleaning can help you maintain good oral health. It also provides an excellent opportunity for your family dentist to identify and treat any developing tooth decay, gum disease (periodontitis), or even oral cancer in the early stages.

At Lakota Dental, we also provide deep cleanings to remove bacteria below the gumline for patients with significant gum disease or a high risk of tooth loss. When you visit our Shorewood dental clinic, we’ll be happy to provide you with our expert opinion about which type of dental cleaning is right for you.
