Dental Cleaning Reviews
"Sadly I have terrible teeth both genetically and as a result of a disease I suffer from called Gastroparesis that causes much vomiting. So I have had much dental work in my life and this practice is an A+Care, skill, newest technologies you get it it all at this practice. So from a cleaning or a routine cavity to an implant or sleep apnea device you will not go wrong here."- M.R. / Yelp / May 06, 2021
"My experience at this dentist was very disappointing. I felt that they were all about money and my first visit for a general cleaning turned into 50 X-rays and cleaning methods that weren’t explained to me. The cost was exorbitant, almost $500. and then they took another $100. out of my credit card for future work, which I made them refund. I was going to give them another try because I was having a problem with a tooth that they recommended I should have a crown. I made an appointment, and the day before my appointment, they called me and said they gave my appointment slot away because they thought I was looking for a PPO group and they didn’t participate in my insurance. I told them I was worried that I might have an infection, and they told me they would call if something opened up. They never did call and I found reputable new dentist, whom I very pleased with."- V.K. / Yelp / Jun 14, 2022

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning two times per year. Children should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, we can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A cleaning may help you avoid cavities because the built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A dental cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you want to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your overall health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a dental cleaning at Market Common Dentistry.
What To Expect
Your cleaning will begin by addressing the tartar and plaque buildup from your enamel, which is challenging to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Professional equipment is used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To begin, a device with ultrasonic technology breaks up large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld tools, such as a scaler or curette, will remove any remaining buildup. Every tooth will be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar. After your teeth have been scaled, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment will be completed following your cleaning.
Dr. James E, Mills & Associates may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Throughout your appointment, the doctor or an assistant on his team will help you design a routine for good oral health at home by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your concerns. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Market Common Dentistry.
