Professional Teeth Cleaning in Rockford IL
When harmful bacteria accumulate on your teeth and release acids that erode enamel and inflamed gums, the result can include tooth decay, periodontal disease, discoloration, and tooth loss. During teeth cleanings, we remove the harmful bacteria before it wreaks havoc on your teeth, gums, and body.
Why Choose Us
When it comes to teeth cleaning, an ounce of prevention now goes a long way towards eliminating greater and more expensive dental problems in the future. However, most people don’t realize it doesn’t just stop at the mouth. Our mouth is connected to our whole body, so any inflammation or disease in the mouth can cause many other problems. This is why we are so passionate about using natural methods to decrease inflammation and pathogens. Our highest priority is to promote, restore, and help you and your family maintain excellent overall health—and regular dental cleanings play a major part in the process. We use the following adjuncts at teeth cleanings:
- Ozonated water
- Oral probiotics
- Oil pulling
All of these combined decrease pathogens in the most natural way possible with no toxicity or side effects.

What is ozone?
Ozone is a gas made up of 3 oxygen molecules. It is highly unstable and reactive and thus, kills any pathogens via oxidation. Since it is only oxygen, it is the most natural and toxic way to kill pathogens and treat diseases.
I already take a probiotic. Do I need another one?
Every body part has a different and ideal flora of bacteria in order to function at its best. Our probiotic is made specifically for the mouth. It contains specific bacterial strains that are needed for optimal gum health.
How often should I have my teeth cleaned?
At least one to two times a year is best. We recommend you come in for a teething cleaning and oral examination every 6 months and more often if you deal with oral health issues, such as gum disease.
How much does a teeth cleaning cost?
The cost of a professional cleaning varies according to several factors. If you have dental insurance, your plan likely covers the entire cost of one to two cleanings per year. Attending regular cleanings is more cost effective than allowing for long gaps in between appointments, because when this happens, we end up extending each visit (which increases the cost) to include in-depth gum treatment and teeth cleaning rather than simply keeping your teeth and gums healthy with our routine cleaning techniques.
Does a teeth cleaning hurt?
No. We assure you that with teeth cleanings, there is nothing to fear. Our hygienists have years of experience and will be as gentle as possible while still providing you with a thorough cleaning. You may feel some pressure as we remove plaque, but a cleaning is not painful at all.
Can I eat after a teeth cleaning?
Will Arestin mess up by gut since it is an antibiotic?
No, Arestin is only localized to your gum tissue and will not upset your microbiome or cause antibiotic resistance.
