Dental Cleanings & Checkups in
Denver, Colorado

Cleaning your teeth at home is very important but is only part of a successful routine. Coming to see our gentle hygienist twice a year will help ensure a healthy mouth, gums and teeth.

What To Expect During Your Visit

At Retro Dental Highlands, we are determined to help our patients achieve a happy and healthy smile. We will use professional tools to remove tartar, plaque and bacteria build-up that you are generally unable to clean by yourself. Following your teeth cleaning, you will meet with one of our dentists, who will check for cavities, oral cancer, gum abnormalities, bite irregularities and other oral issues, that may require attention. Combining regular visits for an exam and x-rays with your daily brushing and flossing will give you the confident smile you desire. In addition, such practices will help protect you from tooth decay, gum disease or tooth loss. Remember, procrastination will never get you the beautiful smile you want and deserve.

Ins And Outs Of Teeth Cleaning

Good oral hygiene is essential to a healthy, confident and beautiful smile. Oral hygiene is also critical to your overall general health. Dental prophylaxis (dental teeth cleanings) will be done by our experienced dental hygienist, including any necessary x-rays and removal of calculus (tartar) and plaque (a sticky film that forms on teeth). Plaque is a growing colony of bacteria which, if left unattended, can cause inflammation, periodontal disease, and tooth decay.

Calculus is hardened plaque that needs to be removed by special dental instruments. After your teeth are cleaned of tartar and plaque, they will be polished to remove stains and remaining plaque. You will then be offered tips on proper brushing and flossing techniques to help keep your teeth clean and fresh in the coming weeks.

Peggy E.

Everyone at this office is great. The hygienist, Kayla, really takes her time and listens. The doc and assistants are the same. You don't expect a great experience at the dentist, but I felt really comfortable here.

Nick N.

Always great and professional. Connie really goes out of her way to check in on patients before and after their visits. All the hygienists are great! Dr. Arens just took over the practice but seems like a very professional and thorough dentist.

Wayne E.

I've been going to Retro since before it was Retro, and I've always had very good experiences! Connie is so great and personable, and all the hygienists are super friendly. I always feel well taken-care-of by the doctors and the entire staff.
