Cleaning

Your regularly scheduled check-up is often referred to as a “cleaning,” but there is much more to it than that! The technical term is oral prophylaxis, which means prevention of oral disease.

One way to prevent oral disease is to remove harmful plaque and tartar (calculus) both above and below the gum line. You will be given special instructions on brushing or flossing to keep clean the areas where we found significant buildup. That is the familiar “cleaning” part of your checkup.

Another way to prevent oral disease is by early detection and treatment. During your checkup you will be screened for many potential threats to your oral health, including:

  • Cavities
  • Gum Disease
  • Oral cancer

In addition, some systemic diseases often present themselves first inside the mouth, so early detection extends beyond just oral disease.

Dr. Gaba personally performs his signature comprehensive teeth cleaning fondly called- “Seven steps to BioClean” utilizing golden seal, tea tree oil and other natural mint oils which has NO fluoride, artificial colors, sweeteners, alcohol and animal ingredients.
