White Smiles Dental Group is your Winnetka best dentist for dental cleanings. We also perform periodontal cleanings, a deeper type of cleaning for teeth. Visit our website today for more information on some of our specials, which include a new patient exam for only $59. This includes X-Rays and a regular cleaning.
Dental cleanings are slightly different from periodontal cleanings. Dental cleanings are done in order to clean the mouth of bacteria and prevent plaque and tartar from building up. During a periodontal cleaning, our dentist uses special instruments to get deep under the gums and to get in places where regular brushes cannot. A periodontal cleaning is done when there is severe gum loss or gum disease. This kind of cleaning gets under the flaps of the gums and down into the pockets of the teeth where bacteria hides. Periodontal cleanings can help relieve the swelling and inflammation that gum disease causes and allows the mouth to heal and feel better.
A regular teeth cleaning by our Winnetka best dentist is meant to clean the teeth and to get food and debris out from in between teeth and gums. A regular teeth cleaning should be done at least once a year. Most people need only one per year, while others who have dental problems may find they need two to three per year. A periodontal cleaning is done as needed, or to control the gum disease present. Sometimes 4 cleanings are done in order to completely rid all pockets of bacteria. We provide both kinds of cleanings at our office and in our offices during short, simple procedures. We also offer Zoom opalescence whitening for only $125 for the bleaching trays. Call us during business hours, which are Monday through Saturday. Saturdays we are open until 2pm.
