Teeth Cleanings

Having regular checkups and professional teeth cleanings can help you maintain healthy teeth and gums and avoid dental problems and possibly even serious health issues.  While brushing and flossing regularly at home are important, you should also visit Dr. Thomas at least twice a year for a professional cleaning to remove the tartar that can’t be removed at home.  This will help you avoid gingivitis and more costly and serious problems in the future.

Everyone over the age of four should visit their dentist for a professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year.  Our friendly team offers comfortable dental cleanings that keep your smile beautiful while keeping you relaxed and at ease.  We serve whole families from young children to senior citizens in Owasso and the surrounding area.

Our Approach

The Procedure for a Teeth Cleaning at Thomas Dental & Eye Care


Warm greeting and friendly environment

Our friendly team will greet you and put you at ease immediately. We have created an environment that feels like home from the comfortable waiting room with separate play area for kids, to the state-of-the-art dental chairs and ceiling-mounted entertainment systems to keep your mind on pleasant things during your cleaning. Our dental hygienists are friendly and caring and will go to great lengths to make sure that you are relaxed and comfortable.


Removing tartar and plaque

Our standard cleaning procedure involves removing tartar and plaque above and below your gum line. Tartar occurs when bacterial plaques calcify on your teeth. Removing tartar can create sounds that many people find unpleasant, so we offer you the opportunity to watch a program on our video screens complete with audio headphones. You can bring your own favorite headphones or borrow ours.


Polishing your teeth

After cleaning away all the plaque and tartar, we’ll polish your teeth with a special gritty paste that brings out the beauty of your pearly whites. Our special polishing tools give you that fresh from the dentist feel that everyone loves.


Optional fluoride treatment

For some individuals a fluoride treatment can help seal and protect their teeth between visits. If a fluoride treatment is recommended for you, it is easily applied to the external surfaces of your teeth in a matter of a few minutes.


Gum disease treatment

For the small percentage of people who have already developed gum disease, we may recommend a deep cleaning process to eliminate bacteria and plaque below the gum line. A local anesthetic will be administered to the side of your mouth to be cleaned so that you will remain comfortable and feel no pain during the procedure.
