A professional dental cleaning will give Dr. Justin Becerra a chance to identify any problem areas in your mouth that may need care.

"I was recently recommended to Alpine Dental Arts due to a broken bridge, which left me with no upper front teeth. The staff was able to schedule me in the next day. By the end of the day, I was fitted with a temporary bridge. I met with Dr. Beccera, and was given options for the work needed. I found the entire staff and Dr. Becerra to be friendly and knowledgeable, making this unforseen visit easy and comfortable. I am having the balance of the dental work done next week. I am not a person to write reviews, however I was so pleased with the ordeal, I wanted to share my experience."- C.C. / Google / May 30, 2019

"I personally worked alongside Dr. Becerra and he is by far the BEST DENTIST I have EVER worked with. He truly puts his patients first and goes above and beyond to make them feel at home. He makes sure to inform his patients on all possible treatments and takes his time to make sure they understand everything before anything is done. He works quickly and efficiently and makes sure things are done right the first time. He is highly ethical and uses quality materials for all work. If you are looking for a dentist who is diligent, personable, dexterous in his craft, and above all puts the patient first, look no further."- M.A. / Facebook / Apr 08, 2019
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients to have a professional cleaning two times a year. Babies should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, Dr. Becerra can help you decide if your child is old enough for a dental appointment. A professional cleaning may help you avoid cavities because built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is treated. A cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you’d like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, boost your health, and avoid spending money on more expensive dental treatments in the future, make an appointment for a cleaning for yourself and every member of your family at Alpine Dental Arts.
What To Expect
A professional cleaning starts by addressing the tartar and plaque that have built up on your enamel, which is difficult to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Special instruments are used to scale carefully without affecting the enamel. First, a device with ultrasonic technology addresses large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld instruments such as a scaler or curette will remove smaller pieces. Every tooth will be individually scaled to get all the tartar and plaque. After your teeth have been cleaned, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains and strengthen the teeth. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment can be performed following your cleaning.
Dr. Becerra may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns such as periodontal disease. Throughout your cleaning, Dr. Becerra or an assistant on his team will help you develop a good home oral care routine by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your specific concerns. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health, so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Alpine Dental Arts.
A professional dental cleaning is a preventive treatment, so it's typically covered by insurance. A member of our office can talk to your insurance company to decide your coverage before we calculate any remaining amount. If you don't have insurance, you can talk to a member of our team about payments we take and medical financing.
