Dental Cleanings, the Key to Oral Health
Clean teeth are the most important factor in proper oral hygiene. Although brushing and flossing your teeth really helps to keep them clean, plaque still has a tendency to build up in those hard-to-see and hard-to-reach places. You should have your teeth cleaned every six months so that your dental hygienist can remove stubborn plaque and keep an eye on problem areas that could lead to cavities or tooth decay if they’re left untreated. Our hygienists will make sure that you’re comfortable at all times.
Your teeth might feel different than usual after a cleaning. Not only is the squeaky-clean feeling normal: it’s a good thing! Feel free to ask your dental hygienist for tips on how to properly care for your teeth at home.

Lynn was referred to Dr. Crapo by friends who told her she could experience truly comfortable dentistry. Like so many other patients, she never enjoyed her trips to the dentist. Now, she arrives at our office feeling relaxed thanks to IV sedation.
“It was very simple. Obviously, very painless. I liked the fact that it was quick… you come out a little groggy, but what I like is there’s no sensation of being frozen. It’s just a great way to go through dental treatments… I’ve been to several dentists over the years, and I think Dr. Crapo is the best.”
