Teeth Cleaning

Brushing and flossing are crucial for your oral health, but they aren't a substitute for routine dental cleanings.

Whether it's been a while since your last cleaning or you're looking for a new dentist, Dr. Mason Pirtle and the team at Precision Dental Partners can help.

Protect your smile with a routine exam and cleaning at our practice in Ballantyne, serving the entire Charlotte, NC, community.

Protect Your Smile From Common Problems Like These

By maintaining a dedicated dental appointment schedule at Precision Dental Partners in Charlotte, you can potentially prevent conditions like:

Tooth Decay

Cavities, or tooth decay, can form on a tooth when bacteria are left unchecked. Fortunately, they're treatable, especially if you go to a dentist regularly enough for them to remove tartar and diagnose problems early at your teeth cleaning appointments.

Missing Teeth

From deep decay to gum disease, many dental conditions can lead to missing teeth. With dental cleanings, we can prevent tooth loss and create an action plan. Already lost a tooth or teeth? We feature restorative dental care like dental implants and crowns.

Infected Root Canals

Root canal infections can be a common result of advanced tooth decay. This unpleasant condition can be caught quickly or even avoided entirely with timely and consistent teeth cleanings at Precision Dental Partners.

Gum Disease

Also known as periodontal disease, this condition begins as a milder, more easily treatable form known as gingivitis, which often causes bleeding while flossing. If it progresses, it can turn into gum disease, leading to further inflammation, pain, and even tooth loss.

How Often Should I Receive a Cleaning?


Generally speaking, most patients will need a cleaning every six months. However, if it's been a while since you've last received dental care, we may ask you to visit us more frequently. We can best assess your exact needs when you visit us for an initial appointment.

I highly recommend this office if you are looking for dental care! My first time gong to Precision Dental for teeth cleaning, exam, and wisdom tooth extraction. Wow, what a fantastic experience. This is an exceptional team. Amber is a highly knowledgeable and gentle hygienist. Dr. Pirtle is very knowledgeable, pleasant, careful, and calming and his assistant Lily is on the mark. Lexi at the front desk is welcoming and helpful with all aspects of the appointments, insurance, etc. An excellent experience in every way!

Invest in Your Smile By Choosing Our Practice

The health of our teeth and gums drastically impact our lives, affecting our diet, appearance, and confidence. Naturally, it makes sense to invest in a high-quality practice, even for routine dental cleanings.

What Does a Dental Cleaning Do That I Can't Just Handle at Home?

By brushing twice a day and flossing once a day, you're doing a great service for your oral and overall health. However, there are just some things that you can't do at home, like:

Remove Stubborn Tartar

Plaque can form on our teeth after we eat. While we can often remove it with flossing or brushing, remaining plaque may harden into tartar. Once that happens, the only thing you can do to remove it is visit a dentist.

Assess Potential Dental Problems

Routine dental visits allow us to catch small issues before they snowball into big problems. For instance, our dentist may notice some early tooth decay, allowing him to treat the area with a filling instead of a more intensive dental crown.

Create a Treatment Plan

If you do have a dental condition that needs treatment, you've come to the right team. Our dentist offers comprehensive services to improve your health and oral function, like fillings, dental crowns, and dental implants.

I Can't Tell if I Have Tartar. What Does It Look like?

teeth with tartar

When plaque hardens, it turns into brown or yellow dental calculus known as tartar. You may not see tartar immediately, unless you have a lot of buildup. However, you may be able to feel this gritty substance on your teeth.

It comes part and parcel with problems like gum disease and tooth decay — and you can't just get rid of it on your own. As a result, it's crucial for patients to attend regular dental cleanings at our Charlotte office, where we can remove it efficiently.
