Teeth & Tooth Cleanings in Amarillo, TX

Professional dental cleanings (prophylaxis) at Sherwood Dental Center are an important part of a good oral hygiene routine. During your six-month cleaning, Julie, our hygienist, will use specialized dental tools to remove plaque and calculus (tartar) that are stuck on the teeth and gums. Then the teeth will be polished to remove any remaining plaque as well as to diminish the appearance of surface stains. By visiting the dentist for your professional cleanings every six months, you are helping to reduce your risk for periodontal (gum) disease as well as tooth decay. If it has been over six months since your last visit, we invite you to call us today to schedule a cleaning and achieve optimal oral health.
