Dr. Joseph C. Styger recommends that you schedule a teeth cleaning in San Francisco, California, every six months. A teeth cleaning appointment includes a professional dental cleaning, comprehensive exams, and complete X-rays.

During your appointment, our dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth by removing tartar from your teeth using a metal tool. The hygienist will then floss your teeth, polish them, and apply fluoride. Fluoride is a naturally found mineral that helps prevent tooth decay by strengthening your teeth and making them more resistant to decay. Our dentist will then check all of your teeth and gums for signs of cavities, gingivitis, and other oral health problems. We may also choose to take X-rays to get a closer, more complete look at your smile. X-rays will help our dentist locate dental problems that are hard to catch with the naked eye. If any problems are found, Dr. Joseph C. Styger will go over your treatment options with you to formulate a treatment plan.

If you experience any dental pain or any kind of dental emergency, please contact our office immediately to schedule an appointment. We welcome you to contact us today to learn more and to schedule your next visit. We are excited to serve you and your family!
