Are you neglecting your dental cleanings because you can’t seem to find the right dentist? Skipping regular dental appointments can lead to dental decay, bad breath, pain, and even serious surgical dental procedures. At Shield Dental Care, we want you to enjoy your smile and your dental visits. During you dental cleaning visit, Dr. Ghorbani will perform a thorough evaluation of your dental needs, taking into account the state of each tooth, your gums, your jaw, any existing restorations, and more. Our goal is to fully understand your dental needs so we can work with you to create the ideal treatment plan and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Check-ups & Dental Cleanings
Cleanings are vital because of the presence of plaque in the mouth. This sticky substance is full of bacteria and constantly forming on your teeth, threatening to cause decay unless removed swiftly. While it’s easy enough to get rid of plaque with brushing and flossing, any skipped areas can develop into a much more stubborn substance known as tartar. Our staff can refresh your smile during your bianual visits, removing plaque and tartar and leaving you with a clean, polished feeling.
