At The Dental Health Center, we recommend routine dental cleanings and exams to all our patients, even if you already have exceptional oral health. We make that recommendation because regular exams and cleanings help you maintain your oral health, preventing problems from developing down the line. They also give us an opportunity to check in on your teeth and gums, so we can catch any new, developing problems early.

What Happens During My Cleaning?

When you visit us for your teeth cleaning, our friendly team will welcome you into our office. Once you are comfortably settled in the dental chair, our experienced dental hygienist will perform a thorough dental cleaning, using special dental tools to remove all the plaque and tartar that you weren’t able to remove with your toothbrush and floss at home.

Then, if needed, the dental hygienist will show you the best techniques for brushing and flossing at home to reduce plaque and keep your teeth and gums healthy.

While you’re in our dental office in Aston for your cleaning, Dr. Seger will also examine your teeth, gums, and oral soft tissues. He’ll check for signs of cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues that should be addressed. If he finds any problems, he’ll discuss them with you and offer treatment options. Dr. Seger always wants to find the best solution to your dental issue, and he wants you to feel entirely comfortable with your treatment. So if you have any questions, feel free to ask them during your appointment.

How Often Should I Have Dental Cleanings?

For optimal oral health, most patients should schedule a dental cleaning appointment at least once every six months. However, if you have oral health issues that require more frequent attention, such as gum disease, we may recommend creating a customized treatment schedule with more cleanings and exams.
