About Dental Cleanings
Even with a good home oral hygiene routine, including brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can still build up around the enamel. This can lead to decay, cavities, and bacterial infections and other problems. To ensure the teeth stay healthy and clean, Fairlawn, OH residents should have a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year at DentalWorks - Fairlawn with our dentists. This is typically known as a prophylaxis. During a professional dental cleaning, our dentists will use oral cleaning tools to carefully remove tarter build-up and plaque on the tooth's surface. After the cleaning, the teeth will be buffed and polished and any recommended dental procedures such as fillings and crowns will be discussed. Routine dental exams and cleanings are vital for a clean and healthy mouth.

"Dr. Solooski and his staff at DentalWork in Fairlawn are awesome! They are very professional, friendly and helpful. Dr. Solooski has been taking care of my family dental health for 20 years now. I brought my 88 years old mom in for him to do her bridges and mom is very happy with her bridges. Before she had her bridges, she had 7 teeth removed and she had no issues or much swelling after the surgery. The surgeon who removed her teeth, Dr. K did an excellent job. Highly recommend Dr. Solooski!! :)"- T.P. / Google / Feb 01, 2019
"I have been a patient for 5+years and have always received exceptional care and service. Every staff member has been professional, courteous, knowledgeable and kind. I am always confident I am in good hands and never feel pressured even when additional services are recommended. I am not always the best with my home care routine (flossing, etc) so I appreciate the reminders to get me back on track. I recommend this practice!"- K.B. / Google / Jan 21, 2019
What to Expect
Dental cleanings are generally painless, but if a patient has sensitive teeth or gums, a numbing cream can be used. In addition, if the patient has trouble getting through a dental cleaning due to fear, mild sedation options are also provided at DentalWorks - Fairlawn. A cleaning usually begins with an ultrasonic tool that helps to loosen plaque and tartar. Next, our dentists use hand tools such as scalers and curettes to remove build-up from the gumline and enamel. The final step is to brush, polish, and buff the enamel. Flossing and/or fluoride usually completes the procedure.
Once the teeth are cleaned, our dentists may perform an oral examination to check for signs of any oral conditions such as cancer or gum disease. To make certain the teeth stay healthy, patients should establish an at-home oral health regime of brushing and flossing daily. Patients should schedule their next dental cleaning at DentalWorks - Fairlawn prior leaving the office, generally within six months.
Because a professional dental cleaning twice a year is considered a necessary preventative care treatment, most dental insurance carriers will cover a large majority of the cost. DentalWorks - Fairlawn will verify with each patient's insurance provider to determine their coverage before billing the patient directly. Patients without dental insurance may inquire about financing plans through DentalWorks - Fairlawn.
