Preventive Dental Cleaning

Performed during the same visit as a diagnostic dental examination, preventive dental treatments help prevent issues from developing so you can avoid the need for extensive restorative treatment later. Dental cleaning (prophylaxis) involves professionally cleaning away plaque and bacteria from teeth to prevent oral bacteria from damaging tooth structure and periodontal tissues.

For enhanced protection, we also provide dental sealants and fluoride treatment that strengthen your teeth and help prevent cavities, and oral hygiene maintenance to help you make the most of your hygiene routine at home.

If you have had a significant time lapse in your dental treatment, then Dr. Mischenko may recommend periodontal treatment, which may include either a debridement, or periodontal scaling and root planing (requires local anesthesia).
