Professional Teeth Cleaning & Dentist Exams in Fort Collins, CO – Time for YOU!

Many dental offices do not allow enough time for thorough individualized care. We at Spring Creek Dental strongly believe that regular preventative care with caring feedback is the key to life long dental health. We take great pride in seeing our patients through the years and helping them to better care for their teeth and gums. Professional dental cleanings at our Fort Collins office are scheduled for a full hour and your hygienist will have time to care for you as you deserve.

Professional dental cleanings are performed by Registered dental Hygienists. Spring Creek Dental has three excellent and gentle dental hygienists.

    • Removal of calculus: plaque that is not removed with home care will harden into a tenacious substance called calculus and attach to your teeth compromising your ideal health. We at Spring Creek Dental believe in the value of ultrasonic scalers (see video) to better remove these harmful deposits.
    • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
    • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
