We pride ourselves on providing the best dental cleanings available

Patients of any age and oral health condition can feel comfortable coming to us for their dental cleanings. We provide the best dental cleanings available in a non judgemental environment. Our dental hygienists are highly skilled, caring, and are lifelong learners. Here at Distinctive Dentistry, our dentists and hygienists are frequently taking continuing education courses to stay abreast of the latest techniques and technologies so we can provide our patients with the highest quality dental care possible.

Importance of regular dental cleanings

Plaque that develops on the teeth and gums can contribute to the formation of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can cause irreversible damage to the tissues supporting the teeth. It is vital that patients brush, floss, and visit their dentist as recommended to reduce their risk of developing gum disease and experiencing the irreversible damage it can cause.

What to expect during your professional dental cleaning

From the moment you walk through our door, we aim to make you feel comfortable, safe, and well cared for. In each treatment room, we offer comfortable treatment chairs, soft music, blankets, and warm towels infused with essential oils. Our expert hygienists will go over your medical history, check your blood pressure, and listen to any concerns or questions you may have before the beginning of treatment. During a dental cleaning, there are several steps involved.

  • Tartar removal – tartar is hardened plaque that you can only effectively remove with the help of a professional dental cleaning. We utilize advanced ultrasonic instruments and techniques to safely and effectively remove tartar.
  • Plaque removal – plaque is the soft bacterial film that coats the teeth. If left undisturbed, plaque can be very damaging to the teeth and gums. During your dental cleaning, our hygienists will remove the plaque and polish the teeth, leaving the teeth feeling smooth and helping your smile to be as bright and stain free as possible.
  • Evaluation – Our doctors will do a thorough exam of the teeth, gums, and supporting structures. In addition, we always perform an oral cancer screening at each visit.
