Professional Cleaning

Kick off your spring cleaning routine by scheduling a professional dental cleaning with your dental team. The purpose of this type of cleaning is to clear away accumulated plaque and tartar, as well as to assess the current health of your smile. The American Dental Association recommends that patients undergo these cleanings every six months, so get yours on the books now!

At-Home Refresh

If you want to get more out of your oral hygiene routine, you can also assess your at-home routine to see whether it’s time to replace tools or cleaning formulations. Check all of the expiration dates on your toothpastes and mouth rinses, and swap out your toothbrush if you’ve been using it for more than a couple months.

Set Goals  

As part of your spring smile evaluation, take the time to note any objectives you have for your smile in the coming months. Whether you want to improve your at-home dental routine or transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry, our dental team is here to help you reach your goals.

You can quickly and easily refresh your smile with help from our Elmhurst dentists. The easiest way to get started is to give our dental team a call; you can also use the Contact Us page on our site to submit an inquiry. We look forward to speaking with you!
