Dental Cleaning

By removing the plaque, calculus, and stain, the gums become healthier (less inflamed because of the irritation of the plaque and calculus) and therefore will bleed less and become less tender.

By controlling the inflammation of the gums, we also prevent bone disease (periodontal disease) because the chronic inflammation of the gums and the presence of calculus lead to inflammation and loss of the bone.

Depending on the health of your teeth and gums, we recommend one of these two types of dental cleanings:

1) Dental Prophylaxis

A professional dental cleaning, also called prophylaxis, removes these three things from your teeth:

  • Plaque, which is the soft whitish layer that accumulates on your teeth regardless of what you eat.
  • Calculus, also known as tartar, which is plaque that has calcified by absorbing minerals from your saliva.
  • External stains from coffee, teas, and other foods.

2) Deep Cleanings: Scaling and Root Planing

Deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is performed when there is a substantial accumulation of calculus under the gums causing severe inflammation of the gums and bone loss (periodontal disease).

The aim of the deep cleaning is to remove all the calculus deposits from the teeth and smoothen the teeth to make it easier to brush and floss and harder for the plaque to stick.

"Going to the Dentist isn't something I enjoy at all. After a 2 year hiatus, due to the pandemic, I was in need of some serious teeth therapy. I was recommended (by a coworker) to Dr. Jalbout and his team. What a great experience. I was at ease, comfortable, welcomed, and nurtured from the very beginning. My anxiety level went from a 10 to a 2. Thank you to an outstanding staff! I have found a new home for my future dental needs."

- Kevin McDaniel

"Dr. Jalbout and his team are excellent. I’ve never been more comfortable with a dental team; I’ve almost fallen asleep in the chair during big procedures. They are efficient, attentive, and caring, and Dr. J works with a precision that I've never witnessed. I’ve moved further and further away from Dr. Jalbout’s office over time and still commute to the city to see him. He’s that good."

- Roland Tiangco
