At Volterra Dental, it’s our mission to promote a preventive approach to oral care. Instead of waiting for dental issues to appear, we choose to stay proactive against all kinds of dental challenges. When we help our patients tackle smaller problems today, this saves them significant issues tomorrow.

One service we provide to our Los Alamitos, California, residents is dental cleaning services. While faithfully brushing and flossing your teeth at home is excellent for your teeth, you need professional cleaning at least twice a year. Combining at-home care with dental appointments is the best line of defense against gum diseases and other oral diseases.

What to expect during dental cleaning

When you are scheduled for dental cleaning in our office, it starts with Dr. Richard Blackburn conducting a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, tongue, and other tissues in the mouth. Besides that, our doctor may request X-ray images to have a better outlook of your gums and teeth.

Next, you will undergo professional cleaning to remove tartar and plaque buildup. Our dentist uses a gentle approach, so you don’t have to worry about any discomfort. Finally, Dr. Blackburn polishes your teeth to give you a healthy, dazzling smile.

Why is dental cleaning necessary?

Most people think that if they brush and floss their teeth as recommended, they don’t require cleaning. Well, if you have been having second thoughts about professional cleaning, you need to think again. Below are some of the benefits.

  • Enhanced oral hygiene: Dental cleaning is pivotal in accessing hard-to-reach places in your mouth. Besides, dental cleaning removes tartar buildup, which is a tough nut to crack for at-home brushing and flossing.
  • Preventive: Dental cleaning involves an oral examination to check teeth decay, gum diseases, oral cancer, and other mouth diseases. This checkup allows your dentist to spot any oral issues at an early stage.
  • Stain removal: The most stubborn stains can be removed with a dental cleaning, leaving you with brighter-looking teeth.
