Cleaning & Hygiene

Dr. Clendenon encourages patients of all ages to have their teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year as part of their comprehensive preventive dental care.  Regular cleanings allow for early diagnosis of developing dental concerns preventing deterioration in your overall oral wellness.
A professional dental cleaning removes the plaque and tartar buildup that serves as breeding grounds for bacteria. Performed by an experienced dental professional, cleanings can go beyond what your at-home routine can accomplish, thoroughly cleaning all surfaces of the teeth. Patients who receive regular cleanings are less likely to develop tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
