Dental cleanings and exams are essential in keep your smile healthy. Regular dental check-ups can help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems. With a routine visit at Reston Dental Care, you can count on us to provide a thorough and gentle cleaning to keep your teeth clean and healthy.

What To Expect During Dental Cleanings

During a cleaning, our dental hygienist will clean your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar buildup. Our hygienist may use a special tool called a scaler to remove the buildup. We may also use a polishing tool to clean and brighten your teeth. After the cleaning, our hygienist may give you advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene at home.

At some point during your cleaning, Dr. Jenny Cheung and associates will come and perform a dental exam to check for any dental problems you have. Early detection of these problems can help prevent them from getting worse.
