Teeth Cleaning Services at a Leading Clinic in Shorewood, IL
Routine teeth cleaning is a critical part of maintaining good oral hygiene. In fact, most patients should schedule an appointment every six to 12 months; however, some patients may require more frequent dental cleanings. Even if you have good oral hygiene habits, skipping your regular cleaning can result in a variety of problems, including:
- Tooth decay and cavities
- Gum disease
- Bad breath
- Tooth loss
Additionally, your teeth cleaning appointment is also an opportunity to identify potential problems, such as early risk factors for oral cancer and other health issues.

Dr. Mike Lakota has more than 25 years of experience delivering dental cleaning services for patients of all ages and goes above and beyond to provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere and wonderful patient experience.
Do You Need a Regular or Deep Dental Cleaning?
If you practice good oral hygiene and regularly keep your teeth cleaning appointments, then a standard cleaning is typically all you will need. At Lakota Dental, we provide an initial examination, tarter and plaque removal, teeth polishing, deep flossing, fluoride treatment, and additional services as needed.
Routine cleanings address the teeth at and above the gum line. However, sometimes this isn’t enough. For example, patients with significant gum disease (periodontitis) or who are at risk for tooth loss, can benefit from deep dental cleaning to prevent further problems. Also referred to as scaling and planing, deep cleaning allows us to remove bacteria and harmful buildup below the gum line.
