Dental Cleanings near Carlsbad, CA, at McElroy Smiles By Design

Your Happy, Healthy Smile Starts Here

Our skilled dentists provide quality dental cleanings near Carlsbad, CA. We deliver preventive care as part of our commitment to your complete oral health. To preserve your healthiest and happiest smile, we recommend that you visit McElroy Smiles By Design twice a year for regular dental exams and teeth cleanings.

As part of your routine oral health exam, our registered dental hygienists will provide a professional dental cleaning that removes tartar and plaque from your teeth above and below your gum line. Even the most careful brushing and flossing routines don’t fully clean the tartar and plaque off your teeth, but our unique dental instruments at McElroy Smiles By Design can eliminate anything that stubbornly clings to your teeth. Our complete dental cleaning also includes careful teeth polishing to remove any residual stains or plaque.

Enjoy Your 5-Star Dental Exam at McElroy Smiles By Design

Once your teeth have been cleaned and polished, our expert dentist will perform a thorough dental exam to ensure that you go home free of any underlying dental concerns. Your exam will include the following:

Digital X-Rays – If necessary, we will take dental x-rays to find tumors, cysts, decay, and bone loss. These x-rays will help us diagnose developmental problems in children that can arise with newly erupting teeth.
Oral Cancer Screening – We check your lips, face, tongue, neck, throat, gums, and tissues for any signs of oral cancer.
Gum Health Screening – We will examine the gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
Check for Tooth Decay – We test the surfaces of all your teeth to ensure that no decay or cavities are forming.
Examination of Existing Restorations – We evaluate any fillings, crowns, or other dental restorations you already have to verify that they are still in great shape.

After you’re given a clean bill of dental health, don’t forget to continue your brushing and flossing routine at home!
