At Polles Dental, our dentistry team is dedicated to providing our patients a strong foundation for great oral hygiene and teaching them how to maintain it at home. Dr. Polles and our professional staff are committed to ensuring our patients receive thorough care during their twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings.
A comprehensive dental examination and cleaning are recommended twice-yearly for children and adults. After the comprehensive examination and evaluation, one of our professional and knowledgeable dental hygienists will perform a comprehensive cleaning. Professional dental cleanings are recommended to be given twice a year to prevent cavities and identify any oral health issues as early as possible. A dental cleaning supplements the oral hygiene you maintain at home.
While it is recommended that adults brush three times a day and floss once a day, many patients only brush their teeth once or twice a day and floss less than once a day. A deep cleaning twice a year by one of our professional dental hygienists includes a polishing and a fluoride treatment to prevent cavities and protect teeth from decay.
