What to Expect During Your Preventative Cleanings

During your teeth cleaning visit at Bassett Creek Dental you can expect a warm and inviting experience from start to finish. You will receive a pleasant welcome when you walk through our doors and that positive experience will continue as you get to know your hygienist. Our entire staff truly cares and will go above and beyond to make your visit great.

Deep Teeth Cleaning for Healthy Teeth and Gums

Deep teeth cleaning or periodontal scaling removes tartar, that hardened material that forms when plaque isn’t removed regularly. Even if you brush and floss your teeth regularly at home, you can still miss a spot, especially on your back teeth. A skilled dental hygienist can complete deep teeth cleaning or periodontal scaling to remove that hard-to reach tartar and plaque and help prevent tooth and gum disease.

Teeth Cleaning for Overall Health

Did you know that keeping your teeth clean can keep you healthy? People who brush, floss, and receive professional teeth cleaning are at a reduced risk of heart disease. When your teeth are healthy, you keep the rest of your body healthy, too! Teeth cleaning contributes to your overall good health.

So stay healthy. Smile more. Make an appointment for your checkup with Basset Family Dental.

“When we moved here, we needed to find a dentist. These guys are great. Very friendly and helpful, and you can’t beat evening hours! Great with insurance and very quick to answer questions. In fact, they have even called when I told them how desperate I was for a specific time. I have no complaints. Oh, and the dentists take great care in knowing that you are comfortable during any of their procedures.”
