What is a teeth cleaning?

At IV Sedation and State-of-the-Art Family Dentistry, we offer professional teeth cleaning in Aspen Hill, Maryland. Our friendly dentists will perform a thorough exam, identifying any potential dental problems, and clean the teeth in order to remove plaque and tartar and to improve the health of your smile.


Why do I need a teeth cleaning?

A professionally cleaned, white smile can make all the difference in enhancing the beauty of your smile. The teeth cleaning Dr. Meltzer and Dr. Hsieh provides can help to keep your smile healthy and looking great. There are a number of special occasions to get your teeth professionally cleaned for, such as weddings, job interviews, or dates.


What if I brush and floss?

Brushing and flossing every day will help you maintain a healthy smile. However, even with proper at-home dental hygiene, you may still be at risk for dental problems. There are a number of factors that can put you at risk, including:


  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Medications
  • Diet
  • Genetics


Our professional teeth cleaning will clean plaque and tartar that flossing and brushing are not able to remove. Our dentists use special and expensive tools that are specially made to keep your smile in optimal condition. If you have any questions about teeth cleanings, we invite you to contact our dental office for more information.
