What Are Dental Cleanings?

Dental cleanings are preventive treatments[/services/general-dentistry/] that play an essential role in maintaining good oral hygiene. These cleanings involve the removal of plaque and tartar that cannot be eliminated by regular brushing and flossing at home. Our skilled dental hygienists use specialized tools to clean your teeth thoroughly, preventing the development of cavities and gum disease.

Benefits of Regular Dental Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings at South Shore Dental Group offer numerous benefits:

  • Disease Prevention: Regular removal of plaque and tartar helps prevent the development of gum disease and tooth decay.
  • Early Detection of Dental Issues: Frequent check-ups[/services/general-dentistry/exams/] allow our dentists to detect potential problems early, leading to simpler and less costly treatments.
  • Oral Health Maintenance: Cleanings promote good oral hygiene practices, contributing to your overall health by reducing risks associated with conditions like heart disease and diabetes.

Here’s a recent testimonial that highlights the commitment and care we strive to provide:

"“After searching multiple pediatric dentists in the south shore, a neighbor recommended Dr.Soncini, the only dentist her son would comfortably sit for. We went once and had an amazing experience. From the dental assistant and dentists first moments with my children it was clear we had found our place. They’re patient, verbally share all that they are doing, and have options at times. Incredibly skilled and all new technologies for X-rays.  After a year of my four kiddos being there, my husband and I made the switch! We are so pleased! I HIGHLY recommend this practice for children and adults alike!"
