Protect your healthy, carefree smile with regular dental cleanings at our office

My Dental and Implants in Glendale, Arizona, is an all-important partner in your oral health journey. Even low-risk patients who consistently and diligently brush and floss their teeth require regular visits to our office. We have access to specialized tools and techniques that can remove the stubborn substances that promote the development of tooth decay and gum disease. These conditions are the leading causes of tooth loss. A comprehensive oral exam typically follows such professional cleaning services. Our dentist, Dr. Nima Afzalian, can detect problems early when they produce little to no symptoms. Intervening with
early-stage disease or decay usually means less invasive, tissue-preserving treatment, which is also more affordable and less time-consuming than restorative treatments to rebuild tissue or even an entire tooth!

Why all patients benefit from routine cleanings 

Congratulations on cleaning your teeth consistently and thoroughly at home! It is critical, however, that home care be complemented by professional dental care. Bacterial plaque erodes the teeth, gums, and eventually the supportive tissues and bone. Plaque is constantly forming on the teeth. So, even the most careful brushers and flossers cannot possibly remove all plaque. And, once it builds up or hardens, it can only be removed with professional tools and expertise. Our hygienists are skilled at removing such stubborn tartar or calculus in a gentle way that doesn’t irritate or damage delicate oral tissues. They can also ensure that all such plaque is removed, effectively preventing the progressive damage caused by hardened bacterial plaque. 

Dental Cleaning before after

Foremost, professional cleanings are a precise and well-tolerated way to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy. They also keep your breath fresh and smelling great. Cleanings also present one of the best ways to keep your smile looking great and to prolong the effects of professional teeth whitening. As our hygienists remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar, they also lift surface stains from the teeth.
