WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL TEETH CLEANING?
A person's dental hygiene is crucial for the health and appearance of their teeth. Attending professional teeth cleanings on a regular basis (two times a year for most people) complement a consistent at-home oral regimen to create a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts years. Utilizing advanced instruments to effectively scale and polish the teeth, cleanings at Oakridge Dental eliminate plaque and tartar from the teeth and gumline to reveal a more radiant smile. At our Farmington, UT office, professional cleanings are carried out by our highly skilled dental hygienists who also provide patients with any necessary information and tips at the end of their appointment to help them enhance their personal dental care routine.
If you haven't received a professional teeth cleaning in six months or longer, please get in touch with our office to schedule your appointment and stay on top of your oral health. Board-certified dentist Dr. Brian Call looks forward to working with you and helping you create excellent habits that will help your smile shine for years to come.

"I can honestly say I had a great visit with Oakridge Dental. If you are someone looking for a new dentist/hates going to the dentist or for someone that may have medical anxieties this dentistry will be a wonderful experience for you. They were thorough in their cleaning but still felt like it took an appropriate amount of time, not too long or too short. The dental hygienist was VERY gentle and explained everything that they were going to do before they actually started doing it. The office itself was immaculate and they have a beautiful big window with a view which also helps to calm nerves while you're in the dentist chair. The staff was incredibly friendly, kind and very knowledgeable. You're greeted with warm smiles from the moment you walk in. My teeth looked and felt so clean after my visit :) My husband and I will definitely keep coming back here for any of our dental needs!! P.S. I'm somebody that typically does NOT write reviews, I only write them when something is fantastic and could possibly help a lot of people. I know how hard it is to find any type of medical care that actually cares about you and when I find one I have to let people know!"- J.V. / Google / Mar 30, 2023
"Best teeth cleaning I ever had! It’s way more comfortable here with their new ultrasonic technology. And something changed with measuring the gum depth around every tooth. I remember it being uncomfortable at my last dental office. I was kind of sad when I had to pay $75 for mixing up my appointment time. But I knew the rule."- B.B. / Google / Feb 03, 2023
"This was the best dental cleaning of my life!!! The staff were friendly, gentle, prompt, not rushed, and knowledgeable! I’ll be back!"- S.D. / Google / Jul 01, 2023
WHO NEEDS DENTAL CLEANINGS?
Patients of all ages can benefit from receiving regular dental cleanings. At Oakridge Dental, we advise our patients to receive professional teeth cleanings no fewer than twice a year; however, some patients may require these cleanings more frequently. Getting biannual dental cleanings is in accordance with the recommendations of the ADA (American Dental Association). Infants should have their first dental exam before they turn one, and following that, Dr. Call or a trained hygienist on his team will help you determine when your child should return for their next appointment. Since dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar, the primary causes of tooth decay, your chances of developing cavities can be dramatically reduced. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, boost your health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, schedule a professional cleaning for yourself and every member of your family at Oakridge Dental.
HOW ARE TEETH CLEANINGS DONE?
A professional cleaning will start by removing the plaque and tartar buildup from your enamel, which can be hard to remove at home, no matter how thoroughly and often you brush and floss. Special tools are used to scale buildup without harming the tooth. First, an ultrasonic device addresses large chunks of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld tools (such as a scaler or curette) will be used to remove smaller pieces. Each tooth will be treated individually to get all the buildup. Once the teeth are clean, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment can be given following the cleaning.
Dr. Call or one of our hygienists may recommend cleanings more often if you have certain oral health concerns that require regular attention and maintenance treatments, such as periodontal disease. During your cleaning, Dr. Call or an assistant on his team will help you design a home routine for good oral health by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that can focus on your concerns. These can be advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health so make sure you attend your dental cleanings at Oakridge Dental.
