With proper at-home care, you’re on your way to preserving your teeth for years to come.

With dental cleaning & examinations in San Francisco, we are your expert line of defense against disease and decay.

Why are dental cleaning & examinations in San Francisco so important?

Whether we realize it or not, plaque—a sticky, colorless film—is constantly building up on our teeth.
Plaque happens to be the ideal home for pesky bacteria that can lead to tooth decay. Worse still, when left alone, plaque can harden into tartar, which can lead to things like gum disease and eventual tooth loss. Preserving your teeth and overall health is every dentists mission.
Using the latest technologies and trusted techniques, our hygienists remove this buildup, preventing this cycle from occurring.
Once we’ve done the needed exams and digital impressions, we will create a plan tailored specifically to you, which may include teeth whitening, crowns, bridges, white fillings, Invisalign, and other forms of cosmetic dentistry needed to achieve the smile you've always wanted.
With examinations, any signs of oral health issues are spotted and addressed so they don’t escalate. Dental cleanings & examinations in San Francisco should be performed every six months for optimum defense.

What to Expect from Dental Cleaning & Examinations in San Francisco

Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are a multi-step process, beginning with a visual checkup. Your hygienist then uses special tools to remove any plaque and tartar build up right down to the gumline. Once cleared of buildup, your teeth will be polished for cleanliness and shine. Flossing will then be done, followed by any fluoride treatments or other steps needed. You will be left with a clean, fresh smile.


Examinations are a vital part of our dental cleaning & examinations in San Francisco. At your first appointment, your exam will be done by your dentist. At later appointments, by your hygienist and dentist combined. Your dentist may take x-rays, use a gentle probing tool to measure your gum pockets, as well as physically and visually examine all of your teeth for signs of decay, damage, and disease. Proper dental examinations can spot and even prevent decay, gum disease, damage, and more. We also screen for signs of oral cancer. If any problems are found, your dentist will work out a tailored plan to restore your mouth to optimum condition.
