Types of Dental Cleanings in Honolulu

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to dental cleanings. Various types cater to different oral health needs.


  • Routine dental cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health, while deep cleanings may be recommended if gum disease is present.
  • Periodontal maintenance dental cleanings help keep gum disease in check for those with a history of it.

Your dentist will determine the most appropriate type of cleaning based on your specific needs, ensuring that you receive the best care tailored to you.

Preventative Dentistry & Cleanings

A preventive program involves collaboration between the patient, dentist, and dental staff to protect natural teeth and supporting structures from dental issues. This begins with at-home oral care and continues with dental exams, dental cleanings, and treatments like sealants and fluoride in the dental office. Prevention is key to maintaining a healthy, confident smile.
