Keep Your Smile Healthy for Life: Make Dental Cleanings a Priority

  • Maintain Fresh Breath: Regular dental cleanings help eliminate plaque and bacteria that cause bad breath, leaving you with long-lasting fresh breath throughout the day.
  • Prevent Stains and Discoloration: Professional cleanings remove surface stains and plaque buildup, helping to maintain a brighter, whiter smile and preventing the need for costly whitening treatments.
  • Prevent Gum Disease: By removing plaque and tartar buildup, regular cleanings reduce the risk of gum disease, preventing painful inflammation, bleeding gums, and potential tooth loss.

    Dental Cleaning – Prophylaxis

    Experience the essence of dental wellness with our Prophylaxis Dental Cleaning service, meticulously designed to restore your smile’s radiance and safeguard your oral health.

    We strongly advise scheduling a routine dental cleaning to effectively eliminate plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. Plaque, a tacky, transparent layer comprising food particles and bacteria, accumulates continuously on the surface of your teeth. This buildup not only poses a threat to your dental health but also increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay if left unaddressed.


    A routine dental cleaning, commonly referred to as prophylaxis or “prophy” for short, involves a thorough removal of plaque and tartar deposits from the teeth and along the gumline. During this procedure, a dental hygienist utilizes specialized instruments to carefully scrape away any accumulated plaque and tartar, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach through regular brushing and flossing.

    Assessment and Preparation

    Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our receptionist and asked to fill out any necessary paperwork. A dental assistant will escort you to the examination room and review your medical history. Dr. Margarita Kutsikovich will conduct a brief examination of your teeth and gums to assess your oral health status.


    Plaque and Tartar Removal

    Using a variety of instruments, including hand scalers and an ultrasonic scaler, we will carefully remove all plaque and tartar buildup from both above and below the gumline. The process may involve meticulous cleaning of each tooth surface to ensure thorough removal of debris and bacteria.


    Flossing and Polishing

    After plaque and tartar removal, we will floss your teeth using dental floss, superfloss, or other flossing aids to remove any remaining debris and ensure clean interdental spaces. Polishing instruments will be utilized to remove surface stains from your teeth, leaving them with a smooth and shiny finish.


    Review of Homecare Routine

    Dr. Margarita Kutsikovich will discuss your homecare routine, including brushing techniques, flossing methods, and any additional oral hygiene practices recommended for your specific needs. Any concerns or questions regarding oral care will be addressed during this discussion to ensure optimal dental health maintenance.


    Recommendations and Follow-Up

    Based on the assessment and cleaning, Dr. Margarita Kutsikovich may recommend specific dental treatments or follow-up appointments if further intervention is needed to address any oral health issues. We will schedule your next dental cleaning appointment to maintain regular visits and help you achieve a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.



    Once the dental cleaning procedure is complete, you will be provided with post-treatment instructions and any necessary follow-up appointments will be scheduled. Our team will ensure that you leave our office feeling confident in your oral health and equipped with the knowledge to maintain it between visits.

    I’ve been seeing Dr. Rita for the past 9 years - everything from general teeth cleanings to most recently my Invisalign treatment! Her knowledge and care has made such a difference in both my life and my smile. 🙂 The staff is a true highlight of this office & always make me feel so welcomed and cared for. Everyone from Cindy and Erica at the front desk, to all of the wonderful hygienists who have worked on me over the years. I can’t imagine doing anywhere else for all my dental needs.

    I wanted to thank Dr Rita and all of her amazing staff for treating my parents with the outmost love and respect! My father needed a lot of specialized care that only Dr Rita was able to provide. Unfortunately, chemo therapy did a lot of damage and he could not eat everything he wanted and was loosing his confidence. Dr Rita’s office welcomed him as their own family and gave him back what cancer had taken away. I can never thank Dr Rita and her staff enough for all their professionalism and kind hearts!
