Here, at Lesniak Dental Group, we believe in the power of prevention. Depending on your individual needs, we will recommend either quarterly or semi-annual cleanings and biannual or annual examinations. Not only do they help us stave off any dental problems before they arise, but they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. During a professional cleaning we use metal instruments and other specialized tools to remove hard plaque, otherwise known as calculus, that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It also involves a fluoride treatment, for those that require it, and a polish to help remineralize and further protect your teeth. Even if you have not had a cleaning in over two years, it is never too late to treat your teeth.
