Why Are Regular Dental Cleanings Important?
At Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates, we recommend all of our patients follow the American Dental Association's guidelines and schedule professional dental cleanings at least twice a year, even if you maintain a steady home care routine of brushing and flossing daily. Using advanced tools, a professional dental cleaning eliminates plaque and tartar from your teeth before polishing them for a brighter, healthier smile. After your appointment, you can get tips from our staff on better home oral care and learn if there are any areas that may need extra attention. During your dental cleaning, our lead dentist, Dr. Monica Gobran, will assess your mouth for any problem areas that might require treatment. Having a dental cleaning is a crucial part of maintaining your oral health so schedule appointments for your family at our Worcester, MA office.
What Should I Expect During My Dental Cleaning?
To start, a member of our oral care team will use our advanced cleaning tools to remove tartar and plaque deposits, which can build up on the tooth enamel, even with regular brushing and flossing. We do this using a sophisticated ultrasonic device that is capable of vibrating at high speeds, allowing us to gently remove built-up deposits without causing harm to the teeth. Handheld tools, such as a scaler or a curette, may be used to carefully eliminate any remaining plaque or tartar. Once each tooth has been cleaned and examined, the enamel will be polished to add strength and remove any set-in stains. A fluoride treatment may be added to your cleaning as needed (or at your request).
Dental Cleaning Reviews
Awesome team!! I had the works done- cleaning and had new crowns installed in the same appointment. Everything when perfect!
Excellent dentist, warm, friendly staff. Lisa's smiles and scheduling talents are appreciated! After every cleaning I feel that I've had the best possible oral care!
I had to leave my old dentist of 34 years due to moving and to find one that was closer to me, as we all know it is one of the harder things to do. Dr. Gobran's team made this a very easy and enjoyable transition. They did such a great job that I felt right at home and didn't even realize I was not at my old dentist. The front desk was friendly and welcoming, the staff was great explaining what needed to be done and why, and my cleaning was top notch! Would recommend this office in a heart beat!
Best dental office around town! It’s beautiful & clean inside which is important to me! The hygienist, Kris did a superb job on my dental cleaning, it was so relaxing I almost went to sleep! Afterwards, Dr. Gobran did a couple fillings on me and it was quick and painless! The work was amazing and she really accommodated my dental anxiety! Keep up the Amazing work!(:
The only dentist I will go too! Starting going here years ago when I was afraid to go to the dentist and have been going here ever since! I've done sedation, teeth whitening, routine visits. They are all so friendly and make you feel comfortable during appts!
