About Dental Cleanings
Professional dental cleanings are essential to maintaining healthy teeth and preventing plaque buildup, which can lead to gum disease. Typically, at Emigh Dental Care in Long Beach, CA, we will perform thorough dental cleanings during a routine exam. However, it's recommended that patients receive a dental cleaning at least twice a year (about 6 months apart). Cleanings help to brighten the smile, as well as remove tartar and plaque to prevent infection, cavities, and tooth decay. Our staff is dedicated in helping their patients maintain their oral health and would love to partner with everyone to achieve their best smile yet.
Dental Cleanings Reviews
"I didn't think I could love this office more, but I was wrong. My toddler's teeth had become suddenly and severely stained from a course of antibiotics. I brought him in for his first appointment to see if the staining could be polished away. He's not particularly cooperative with brushing at home (or with anything, for that matter!), so we had realistic expectations of how this cleaning would go. My son saw Dr Todd for this special appointment. Dr Todd was fantastic with my son. He explained everything that was going on and made it fun and silly. He connected with my son and tuned out everything else. It was amazing seeing my wriggly uncooperative toddler smile a huge smile and sit HAPPILY for his cleaning!We've been coming here for years and absolutely adore these people- Elaine and Crystal at the front desk, Drs Pat and Todd, and especially our beloved hygienist Tammy. This is a class act. You won't regret coming here. And, although this isn't a true pediatric dentistry office, Drs Pat and Todd and hygienist Tammy have proven themselves to be top notch with little kids. My older child absolutely adores Tammy."- Z.Q. / Yelp / Aug 15, 2017
What to Expect with Dental Cleanings
Dental cleanings usually start with an examination of the teeth. During the exam, our dentists will look for any signs of damage, cavities, or decay. Patients teeth will then be cleaned to remove any plaque and tartar buildup, followed by a deep clean and polish with professional dental tools. Patients will have the opportunity to discuss the health status of their teeth with our dentists as well as discuss home dental health suggestions.
Dental Cleanings Treatment Aftercare
After receiving cleaning services from our hygienists, patients should maintain optimal oral hygiene using the recommendations provided by our office during their treatment. Patients should brush their teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and floss.
