As you know, it is highly important to your oral health that you brush and floss your teeth every day. However, oral hygiene alone is not enough to achieve and maintain ideal oral health. You must also have a professional dental cleaning and checkup twice a year. This will allow Dr. Tantuco and Dr. Chong to help you keep your teeth healthy and strong.

When you come in for your appointment, our hygienist will first use a small, metal tool to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then the hygienist will floss between each of your teeth. Depending on your needs, dental fluoride may be applied. Then your teeth will be polished to give them extra shine.

Our dentists will then examine your teeth and gums, checking for any issues or potential issues like decay and gum disease. Dr. Tantuco and Dr. Chong may choose to take X-rays to get a closer look. If any dental problems were found, our dentists will discuss them with you and go over your treatment options. Of course, the final decision about your treatment plan is yours to make.
