Teeth Cleaning Northwoods

Teeth Cleaning is an Integral Part of a Healthy Smile.


A great smile requires brushing and flossing to keep your oral health in great condition. But sometimes your oral health needs more than what you can do at home. Teeth Cleaning provided by our dentists in Northwoods can help make sure that your smile is healthy and protected.

During a twice-yearly check-up, patients receive a thorough examination of their teeth, gums, tongue, jaw, and neck. Our dentistry in Northwoods will check your teeth to make sure they are free of cavities and other abnormalities. As we examine your gums, we’ll be able to detect whether any disease is present, or if your oral health needs other procedures or prescriptions. We’ll also check to see if TMJ is developing, or if any other ailments could arise from your joints, or glands concerning your oral health. If necessary, Dr. Cutrona may recommend additional X-rays, an oral cancer screening, or a further periodontal inspection.

Our Dental Hygienists will thoroughly and carefully clean your teeth with professional-grade dental products and tools. Professional cleanings are recommended to be given twice a year to prevent cavities and identify any oral health issues as early as possible. Having your teeth professionally cleaned maintains and boosts your oral hygiene.

The dentist or hygienist will use scalers, curets, and in some cases ultrasonic scalers to thoroughly clean the entire surface of each tooth, including the portion below the gum line. Once your teeth are cleaned of any plague or other obstructions, we’ll polish them to make sure that any surface stains are lessened. Tooth polishing is commonly one of the final steps in a professional dental cleaning. To polish the teeth, a dentist or hygienist will use a rubber cup-shaped instrument and an abrasive toothpaste or a mixture of baking soda and water to make teeth appear shiny and smooth. The final step is the application of a protective fluoride treatment.
