About Dental Cleanings

Even if you brush and floss your teeth perfectly at home, you should still schedule a professional cleaning at Complete Family Dentistry twice a year. For a brighter, healthier smile, biannual cleanings help remove built-up plaque and tartar while polishing your enamel. After your cleaning, we will provide tips to help improve your at-home routine and show you areas that require more attention. Additionally, a professional cleaning will give our team a chance to review any problems within the mouth. Having a professional cleaning is an important step in maintaining your oral health so please schedule an appointment at our Wellsboro, PA office.

Oral Hygiene

Scheduling regular teeth cleaning appointments is vital to your oral and overall health. However, maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine in between appointments can ensure your mouth stays healthy. At your routine cleaning, we will assess your needs and discuss the best ways to care for your teeth and gums. Patients will receive personalized information on flossing and brushing techniques, foods to avoid, and specific products. If needed, we will also point out specific areas to brush and floss better. During your visit, please let us know if you have any questions.

Dental Cleaning Candidates

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends people schedule a professional cleaning twice a year. Babies should receive their first dental exam before their first birthday. After that, we can help you determine when your child is old enough for their next appointment. We perform cleanings to eliminate plaque buildup, which prevents cavities and reduces tooth decay. A professional cleaning will also remove stains and tartar on the enamel. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your overall health, and avoid spending money on expensive treatments, schedule a professional cleaning at Complete Family Dentistry.

What To Expect

Your cleaning starts by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your enamel, which can be challenging to remove at home, no matter how often you brush and floss. Our team utilizes specialized tools that remove buildup without harming the tooth. To start, we use a device with ultrasonic technology to eliminate large areas of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and water. Then, we use handheld tools, like a curette or scaler, to remove the remaining pieces. Every tooth needs to be individually scaled to get all of the tartar and plaque. After we scale your teeth, the enamel is carefully polished to remove stains. If required or requested, patients can receive a fluoride treatment following their cleaning.


Sometimes, we may suggest more frequent cleanings for patients who have conditions, such as periodontal disease. During your cleaning, our expert dentist will help you design an excellent, at-home routine by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that address your specific concerns. In addition to biannual cleanings, your oral care routine is extremely beneficial for your teeth, health, and wallet. Please make sure you schedule and attend all your recommended dental appointments at Complete Family Dentistry.
