815 Dental Studio
The principal approach to avoiding dental issues such as cavities, dental pain, gum disease, and other oral complications is to totally prevent them from the beginning. 815 Dental Studio feels passionate about preventative dentistry. Practicing a consistent at-home oral hygiene program, complemented by visits to see your team at 815 Dental Studio for examinations and teeth cleanings every six months, is a superior combination in your preventive efforts.
The Academy of General Dentistry strongly suggests that you have a professional dental cleaning every six months. This dental cleaning reinforces your oral health habits of daily brushing and flossing and gives us the opportunity to examine and identify areas in your mouth that might need more attention.
Dr. Anthony and the hand-picked team at 815 Dental Studio focus on bringing sparkling and beautiful smiles to every family we get the opportunity to work with. We provide quality general family dental and cosmetic procedures services. We manage the entire family’s dental needs. We are experts in all general dental procedures, from examinations and preventative cleanings to extractions, periodontal treatments, and restorations such as crowns and fillings. We are also skilled in a wide variety of cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, inlays, onlays, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and other options to restore and maintain your healthy and natural smile.

If you exercise proper oral hygiene at home with the correct brushing and flossing techniques, you should not encounter any discomfort during your dental cleaning. If you have neglected proper oral hygiene habits, you may experience some sensitivity or discomfort during your dental cleaning. We may choose to use a topical anesthetic or even a mild dental sedation before your dental cleaning to alleviate discomfort.
The Dental Cleaning Process
Professional dental cleanings usually follow a comprehensive oral exam. Once we have finished your exam, unless your team at 815 Dental Studio has identified the presence of gum disease, we will perform a dental cleaning or prophylaxis. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, we will strongly recommend a deeper cleaning to first eliminate the source of the disease and to allow your soft tissue to heal.
During the first step of your dental cleaning, we use a handheld scaler or an ultrasonic scaler to deliberately remove any debris, calculus, and plaque from the enamel surface of each tooth, between your teeth, and around your gum line.
When this scaling is completed, we then follow up with a polishing procedure using a special paste on each tooth. We will meticulously floss your teeth as well.
To complete your dental cleaning, you will also receive diagnostic and preventive services from 815 Dental Studio as well as beneficial educational information.
Diagnostic services include:
- An extensive and thorough oral cancer examination and screening.
- To review and update your medical history, including information about any recent heart issues, pregnancy, diabetes, or new medications, all of which can impact your oral health.
- A comprehensive evaluation of your gum tissue.
- A thorough examination of your teeth to detect any decay.
- Checking your biting, chewing, and swallowing patterns.
- Periodical necessary X-rays to identify any current issues below the surface.
Preventive services include:
- The removal of any plaque and tartar you missed with your brushing.
- A possible fluoride application.
- Locating and removing any stains.
- Polishing your teeth, which includes existing fillings and crowns.
- The consideration of applying dental sealants (for children).
- The necessary cleaning and adjustment of existing dentures or partial dentures.
Educational services and suggestions might include:
- Effective and proper tooth brushing and flossing techniques.
- Any recommendations for future treatment, like when to return for dental cleanings, periodontal concerns, or any restorative options.
- Nutritional counseling and suggestions for you to consider with your diet.
- An evaluation of your self-care effectiveness.
- Suggestions regarding tobacco usage.
After your dental cleaning is completed, we will follow up with any additional treatment that is recommended and beneficial.

Dental Cleaning for Adults
We adhere to industry recommendations, and that is for adults to have dental cleanings at least twice a year. Proper oral health has an impact regardless of your age.

To proactively resist this is with your daily brushing and flossing in addition to visiting 815 Dental Studio on a consistent basis.
