Dr. Philip Gotsch offers dental cleanings to help prevent problems such as gum disease and tooth decay and keep your mouth and smile healthy.

Dental cleanings and exams are the foundation of oral health, outside of a regular and thorough home care routine. When you visit us for a checkup, our dental team will provide you with a professional teeth cleaning and a dental exam to keep your smile healthy and clean. During a typical cleaning and exam, we will:
- Clean your teeth by removing any dental calculus, commonly called plaque or tartar, which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and then polish your teeth so they can stay healthy and bright
- Investigate your smile for any signs of dental damage or disease
As part of our examination of your teeth, we may use dental X-rays to help us get a better view of your smile and check for potential issues. These exams and cleanings are key to good oral health and preventing cavities and gum disease. With regular cleanings and exams, we can make sure you get the treatment you need as early as possible.
Dental cleanings and exams are most effective if you visit us every six months. If needed, we may suggest you come in more frequently, and we of course encourage you to visit us between checkups if you experience a dental emergency, pain or injury. To schedule your next appointment with us, please call us today. Our dental team is ready to help you care for your smile!
