Dental Cleanings Reviews
"Many of the dentists I've been to have not been the gentlest with cleaning or other dental work. I was surprised and amazed with the gentle touch of Dr. "T" and Emily. They were professional, fast, and the most thorough. I have been recommending them to everyone I know and plan to bring in my entire family. They were the right choice for me and you can trust your teeth will be treated well."- Google User / Google / Oct 24, 2010

"Folks, this is a first-class operation all the way. I am treated with dignity and respect, by Dr. Tatevossian and all of his staff. Since I drive from Escondido to Redlands to meet my appointments, I am as committed to them as they have been to me. I'm happy that I have the opportunity to obtain the kind of skilled professional care the folks at King House provide.--Kevin Bray"- K.B. / Google / Jul 24, 2016
"I've been going to Dr. T ever since my family moved to California 9 years ago. I left to go to college in Boston 6 years ago but I always come back for dental cleanings at King House during my school vacations. I love them! They're always so nice and they always ask me how my family is doing. My family goes to a different dentist now since my little brother needs to be handled carefully due to his sensitive gag reflex, but I always go to King House. One time, I broke my retainer and Dr. T made me a new one and didn't charge me for it. He's awesome and I feel like everyone that works there really cares about the patients."- D.R. / Yelp / Jan 09, 2015
A dental cleaning is usually done after a dental exam, which checks for any signs of decay, cavities, or other dental problems. During the dental cleaning, the hygienist removes any tartar or plaque buildup from the teeth with professional instruments. Then, the teeth are cleaned and polished the teeth to remove stains and brighten the enamel. A dental cleaning is usually performed without anesthesia, but patients with concerns like a strong gag reflex or anxieties, may talk to their dentist about adding a form of sedation.
Our dental office accepts most dental insurance plans, as well as offers numerous payment options and financing. Pricing per visit will vary depending upon the patient's needs. Prior to the procedure, the cost will be confirmed, discussed, and approved by the patient before treatment is provided.
Most patients should schedule a dental cleaning twice a year or about every 6 months. However, patients with excessive tartar and plaque buildup should talk to their dentist about more frequent cleanings.
Some patients who are at higher risk for tooth decay may receive fluoride treatments as part of their dental cleaning. Fluoride treatments are a quick preventative measure that can help patients, especially young children, avoid future cavities.
Special Care After Cleanings?
After a dental cleaning, dentists recommended that patients abstain from eating or drinking for up to an hour. Following this, there are no special instructions, but patients should follow a healthy dental regimen of daily brushing and flossing combined with regular dental exams and cleanings at the dentist.
