Professional Cleanings

Keeping Your Teeth Healthy

At East Peoria Dental Group, we understand that coming to the dentist for a checkup might not be your favorite activity. But we also know that regular teeth cleaning and dental checkups will keep your teeth healthy and strong. And because the mouth is the gateway to your entire body, regular teeth cleanings and dental checkups can help keep the rest of you healthy as well!

Our hygienists are very popular with our patients, and some of the most popular in the Peoria area! The skilled hygienists at East Peoria Dental Group routinely perform pain-free and relaxing cleanings for our Peoria, East Peoria, Washington, Pekin, and Morton patients. In addition to thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums, they will help you understand how best to care for your teeth between cleanings and dental checkups.

By seeing us and getting your teeth cleaned regularly, we can catch problems while they are small and easy to manage. The best way to minimize risk of future problems like cavities, infections, and toothaches is to see your dentist and dental hygienist on a regular basis. We will use our office’s special technology to go over your oral health and help keep you smiling bright for years.
