Family Dental Cleaning in Erie, PA

Regular dental cleanings are important for preventing disease and tooth loss. As humans, we are constantly consuming food and beverages that damage our teeth. Going to the dentist is much better than deep cleaning your teeth at home because your dental care team can remove the excess buildup of plaque and tartar because too much buildup will eventually lead to gum disease.

Teeth cleaning is especially important for children in order to ensure proper dental health throughout their development and to prevent gum disease early on. Gum disease occurs when your body's immune system reacts to the plaque and tartar buildup with bleeding and inflamed gums. Once the gum disease gets to a certain stage, it becomes irreversible so prevention and regular dental cleaning appointments are critical.

Whether you're single or have a family, Dr. Lee Simon and his dental staff can provide regular teeth cleanings for everyone. Get in touch with us to schedule your teeth cleaning appointment in Erie, PA today!

What to Expect at Your Teeth Cleaning


Your dentist and dental hygienist will brush your teeth with professional dental cleaning tools to remove any food remains and plaque. This special toothbrush will help refresh your smile.


Flossing is a critical part of all dental cleanings (yes, even when you're cleaning your teeth at home). This step removes food particles trapped between teeth that may not be removed with regular brushing.

Teeth Scraping

Simple everyday teeth cleaning fails to remove plaque and tartar, so your dentist and dental hygienist will probably also use stainless steel dental cleaning tools, such as picks and scrapers on your teeth.

 Dental Exam

After a thorough cleaning, your dentist will do a full dental exam. This happens at each of your six-month cleanings to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy, which helps prevent gum disease.

What is included in a dental cleaning?

A typical dental cleaning starts with a dental hygienist using stainless steel tools to break down and remove plaque and tartar. Following that, you can expect a thorough teeth brushing as well as flossing, and mouth rinsing. After your cleaning, the dentist will do an oral exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy.
