Dental Cleanings

Preventative Dentistry in Lihue on Kaua’i

Just as you need regular checkups with your physician, you also need routine professional dental cleanings. The reasons are two-fold.

First, a cleaning at Kauai Family Dentistry helps keep your mouth healthy and sanitized, removing built-up tartar that can’t be eliminated with daily brushing and flossing. Secondly, your regular dental cleaning allows Dr. Goo to check your mouth for any issues or potential problems.

Even the most diligent patient has a bit of tartar accumulation, usually in the hard-to-reach nooks of their teeth. We thoroughly remove this tartar, plaque, and bacteria to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

We also use state-of-the-art equipment, such as low-radiation digital x-rays, to check for tooth decay, bone integrity, restoration wear, and other issues. These regular examinations can help us catch minor problems before they become severe, painful, and expensive.
