Teeth Cleaning

Tooth cleanings performed by an oral health professional also include screening for warning signs of, for example, oral cancer. 

Dental Tooth Cleaning | Preventative Maintenance For Dental Health | Lewiston, ME

Teeth cleaning by an oral health professional is much more than a cosmetic dental procedure. In experienced hands, tartar and plaque that’s built up on and between your teeth is removed. This prevents enamel-erasing bacteria from lurking in the crevices of your mouth, and can cause bigger issues down the road.

The first dental hygiene goal is to have your home routine on point when it comes to preventative care for your oral health and your smile. Then, it’s a good idea to still get regular teeth cleanings here in Lewiston, ME. The intensity of your cleaning here at Aspire Family Dentistry will depend in part on your home dental care routine.

We’ll also be checking for warning signs of gum disease, oral cancer, and more, like we do every time you visit our dental office.

I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."

I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
