St. Cloud Dental Cleanings

Schedule an Appointment

Our patients want to have excellent oral health, but are not always sure where to start. Professional dental cleanings in Central Minnesota, combined with a proper at-home care routine, provide a strong foundation for good oral health.

Regular dental visits and cleanings are an important part of caring for your teeth, gums, and mouth, and should be completed by your dental hygienist at least every six months, in addition to daily brushing, rinsing, and flossing. While good at-home care routines can help maintain dental health, often, you are unable to get into the deeper gum pockets and small spaces within the teeth. That’s why your professional cleanings are so important.

Cavitron® Ultrasonic Scalers

Our hygienists use Cavitron® ultrasonic scalers to thoroughly clean the hard-to-reach areas. This technology creates ultrasonic sound waves to gently vibrate plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth while a small, steady stream of water washes it away. Additionally, if you drink a lot of soda, coffee, or eat a lot of sugar, regular in-office cleanings can help manage and track decay or cavities before they get out of control.

Bitewing X-Rays & Flouride

Once a year during your cleaning, we also recommend getting quick bitewing x-rays to check the top of your teeth, with full mouth x-rays recommended every five years at most! During your cleanings, our dentists will also check for any preventative concerns like oral cancer, TMD, or gum disease, as well as helping you develop a better at-home care routine if needed!

Our cleanings can also include any applications of fluoride or sealants to help protect teeth from cavities and general wear and tear in between visits. You will also have time to ask your dentist any questions, express any concerns, or to discuss any further treatment recommendations that your dentist may have.
