Dental Cleaning by Charleston Dental Associates

Charleston Dental Associates offers regular dental cleaning procedures for our clients across the Charleston SC area.

We plan your dental periodontal treatment program to meet your specific needs. You may need only to visit us twice each year, or you may need more frequent visits to improve or maintain your dental periodontal health.

Dental cleanings are an important part of preventive dentistry, and a regular feature of your visit to Charleston Dental Associates. “Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. A dental hygienist can remove hardened deposits (tartar) not removed by routine cleaning.” Wikipedia

During your regular visit, you may also require non-surgical periodontal therapy which involves careful cleaning of root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus in deep periodontal pockets.

At Charleston Dental Associates, our routine examinations include:
