Choose Duren & Marsh to Take Care of Your Oral Hygiene

Comfort is key! Many people dread teeth cleanings. Between the prodding, strange noises, and occasional jaw discomfort, it’s easy to understand their apprehension. But for most, a teeth cleaning is simple and painless and at Duren & Marsh, we pride ourselves in ensuring you have the most comfortable teeth cleaning possible. Don’t let past dental fears stop you from taking care of your oral health.

Professional teeth cleanings are scheduled twice a year, while X-rays are normally done once a year. Still, depending on what your dentist or dental hygienist observes in your mouth, they might do other exams during your visit. For children, a dentist may recommend molar sealants to help prevent cavities in hard-to-brush areas.

Our preventative dental care services include:

  • Professional Teeth Cleaning—Teeth polish and removal of plaque build-up.
  • X-Rays—Helps spot any issues that may be developing and detects at-risk teeth.
  • Gum Treatment—Depending on your gum health, we can recommend treatment or periodontal therapy.
