Dental Cleaning Simpsonville, SC

Dental Cleaning An Overview

A dental cleaning is the foundation of your routine preventive dental care at O’Malley Dental, performed by our trained and experienced dental hygienists. Combined with a thorough dental exam with Dr. O’Malley, it is a key component of long term oral health maintenance.

During your dental cleaning, we reach spaces and surfaces that can be hard to access yourself when brushing and flossing your teeth each day. Our staff is also trained to look for the early warning signs of dental problems that can quickly develop into more complex concerns if left untreated. Tooth decay, gum disease and other health concerns with early oral symptoms can often be treated successfully with conservative means when caught in the developmental stage.

Dental Cleaning What to Expect


Your dental hygienist will use a special toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to gently clean all tooth surfaces. We will look for any signs of tooth damage or decay as we clean the teeth and offer personalized oral hygiene tips for keeping your smile clean and healthy between visits. Taking the time to get to know you and learn more about any medical issues or lifestyle habits that may affect your oral health enables our staff to provide the best possible care and advice.

After brushing the teeth, we will floss between them and look for any signs of gum disease. In most cases, a fluoride paste will be applied as the final step in the process to strengthen your tooth enamel and help fight decay.
