Professional dental cleanings are essential to maintaining good dental health. Receiving a routine dental cleaning helps to keep your smile healthy by removing plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) that your toothbrush cannot reach. Regular dental cleanings also provide Dr. BJ Showman and her team the opportunity to examine your smile, including your teeth, gums, and any existing restorations, to ensure that your smile is in good health.

A teeth cleaning is performed with the utmost gentleness and thoroughness by one of our registered dental hygienists. During this cleaning, we will:

  • Gently clean the teeth, removing plaque and tartar that can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • Gently polish the teeth to give you that “dentist clean” feeling

For more sensitive patients, we are happy to provide needleless anesthetic for a comfortable and pleasant experience. Dental cleanings are part of a preventive plan that is designed to keep your smile bright and healthy for years to come. If it has been more than six months since your last check-up, we encourage you to call 216-241-4303 or visit us at Downtown Dental Associates today to schedule your next dental cleaning in Cleveland, Ohio. We are eager to care for your smile!
