What To Expect During Your Teeth Cleaning

Our team of dental professionals takes a genuine interest in each and every patient's oral health needs and concerns. We strive to provide the best care and a great experience.
While brushing and flossing at home is a great way to maintain oral hygiene, it does not compare to a cleaning by our professional hygienists.

Review Concerns

During your visit, you can discuss with Dr. Stragier and your hygienist if you've been experiencing any pain, sensitivity, or discomfort. 

Dental Examination

X-rays will help us get a detailed look at the health of your teeth and gums to detect any signs of tooth decay or other oral health issues. Our tooth-by-tooth inspection and cleaning can help us identify early signs of gum disease.

Removing Plaque and Tartar

A buildup of plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. We will remove this buildup to help prevent these oral health issues and keep your smile healthy.

Dental Cleaning

While brushing and flossing at home is a great way to maintain oral hygiene, it does not compare to the cleaning power of our professional hygienists. Their tools and techniques can remove food particles and plaque from those hard-to-reach places.

Treatment Recommendations

Depending on your needs, Dr. Stragier will recommend any necessary treatments to restore your oral health. Our trained staff can also recommend any at-home tips and techniques to help keep your smile at its best.

​Steps You Can Take to Maintain Your Oral Hygiene At-Home Prevention

While routine teeth cleanings are necessary for maintaining the health and appearance of your smile, you will need to continue good oral hygiene habits at home to retain the effects.

Brush Your Teeth Twice Daily

Brushing your teeth twice a day can help remove bacteria and keep plaque buildup to a minimum. A soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste are the best choices for most patients. 

Brush Your Tongue

Brushing your tongue is an important step in the teeth-cleaning process. Just like your teeth, your tongue is also a common place for bacteria buildup. By brushing both your teeth and tongue, you can remove cavity-causing bacteria from your entire mouth. 

Floss Once Daily

Daily flossing is an important step in your oral hygiene routine. Flossing removes stubborn food particles that get stuck between our teeth and prevents gum disease.

Has it Been a While Since Your Last Cleaning? You May Have a Cavity

One in every four adults age 20-64 currently has at least one cavity
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Fortunately, cavities caught before they progress can be addressed with a quick and simple dental filling to restore your oral health. Routine cleanings at our San Diego practice will help prevent any future cavities from forming.
