It only takes twenty four hours for plaque that is not removed from your teeth to turn into calculus (tartar)! Daily home cleaning helps control plaque and tartar formation, but those hard to reach areas will always need special attention.
Once your periodontal treatment has been completed, your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend that you have regular maintenance cleanings (periodontal cleanings), usually four times a year. At these cleaning appointments, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy. Plaque and calculus that is difficult for you to remove on a daily basis will be removed from above and below the gum line.
In addition to your periodontal cleaning and evaluation, your appointment will usually include:
Good oral hygiene practices and periodontal cleanings are essential in maintaining dental health and keeping periodontal disease under control!
Excellent & professional Service
My wife & I have been coming to Griffin Family dentistry for 18 years. The dental service is the best and the staff is always professional and friendly. On my recent visit I had a teeth cleaning and a X-ray. I want to thank Connie, my dental hygienist, she does a great job and has a gentle touch. I highly recommend Griffin Family Dentistry.

Connie is amazing! She really took the time to listen to my needs, and the things that cause me anxiety. She went above and beyond! I can't tell you how comfortable she made me feel.
