Dental CleaningsAn Overview
Preventive dental care is the foundation of a lifelong healthy smile. Dr. Georgia Haddad encourages all patients to visit our Oxnard, CA dentist office at least twice a year for professional dental cleanings and a thorough oral health check up.
Professional dental cleanings can help patients keep their teeth and gums healthy and clean. Professional dental cleanings every 6 months can help prevent the development of common dental problems and provide the opportunity for our team to screen for a range of concerns including gum disease, oral cancer and bite problems.

In office dental cleanings reach areas of the teeth that regular brushing and flossing can not and are a vital part of a good oral hygiene routine. Dr. Haddad and our dental care team are dedicated to protecting your oral health through preventive dental care and patient education.
Dental Cleanings What to Expect
Your dental cleaning will begin with a thorough oral examination. Dr. Haddad provides comprehensive general dental check-ups to ensure that there are no underlying dental concerns that need to be addressed. Oral cancer screenings, tooth decay screenings, and potentially x-rays will be used to gain a better understanding of the condition of your oral health. Regular dental cleanings will help patients prevent the development of complex oral health concerns.
Patients with a healthy smile as a result of daily oral hygiene and routine dental care typically do not experience discomfort during their dental cleanings. Dr. Haddad and our dental care team work to ensure that all of our patients are as comfortable as possible while receiving dental treatments. For patients with fear of the dentist, Dr. Haddad can offer sedation options that will put you at ease.
