Perkiomaki, DMD, we recommend dental cleanings be performed a minimum of twice a year at our SW Portland dental office.

Our hygienist will clean your teeth by removing plaque, tartar and surface stains.

What will happen at my hygiene appointment?

Dentist working on patient - JJ Perkiomaki, West Haven - Sylvan, Portland, ORUsing the latest diagnostic technology, we can see below the gumline and any hidden spots where decay may be present, allowing us to completely evaluate the status of your dental health. Based on our evaluation, treatment will include scaling with hand instruments and/or an electric scaler which is used with a water sprayer to loosen and remove plaque and tartar. This process may be mildly uncomfortable at the time, but we are removing bacteria that is harmful to your teeth. We may even sand and smooth the roots of your teeth. Finally, we brush your teeth with a rotary brush and gritty paste, this both polishes and cleans your teeth by removing surface stains. We will commonly floss your teeth and may offer a fluoride treatment for strength. Dental cleanings and examinations twice a year help you. Our patients save money, time, and pain, by catching problems early. With regular cleanings, we can help prevent cavities and periodontal disease.

Dental Cleanings help you by:

•  removing plaque and tartar reducing the number of potential cavities.
•  removing unseen food particles that causes odors.
•  removing surface stains, giving you a whiter smile.
•  removing harmful bacteria, stopping periodontal disease in its tracks.
