A healthy smile is the foundation of a beautiful smile. At Signature Dentistry of Denver, our team of professionals give your preventative care the attention and time you deserve.

A cleaning by a dental hygienist is an important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy. While your home care is important, there are aspects of your mouth you simply cannot keep healthy without professional help. Tartar (mineralized plaque) cannot be removed by brushing and flossing, which is why professional cleaning that includes scaling and polishing to remove tartar that accumulates on your teeth above and below your gums is such an important part of keeping your teeth healthy for your life.
Most dental hygienists recommend having teeth cleaned at least once or twice a year. Routine examination of the teeth is recommended at least once a year, which may include select dental x-rays as recommended by one of our doctors. At Signature Dentistry of Denver, we have state-of-the-art 3D digital imaging and x-rays, which minimizes the amount of radiation exposure for our patients, and provide our doctors with the highest level images for accurate diagnosis.
Periodontal Disease is an infection in the gums and teeth that leads to bone loss, and eventually tooth loss. Approximately one third of tooth loss in adults is caused by periodontal disease. More frequent or thorough cleanings are also recommended if you have periodontal disease, or have had it in the past. Our board certified dental hygienists have many years of experience helping patients with periodontal disease bring their teeth and gums back to health. Their thorough yet gentle approach gets rave reviews from our patients. Come experience the Signature difference for yourself!
