A routine dental cleaning includes diagnostic and preventative services, as well as pertinent educational information. During the cleaning, calculus deposits (better known as tartar or dental plaque) are removed using a variety of tools. Regular professional cleanings help reduce the likelihood of conditions that require root canals, extractions, bridges, crowns and more. As a professional who’s acutely aware that even simple dental procedures can cause significant anxiety for certain individuals, Dr. Whitford is always happy to discuss sedation options with patients, even for cleanings.
