Cleanings & Routine Checkups

Cleanings and routine checkups are essential general dentistry treatments offered by the Napa Valley Dental Group in Napa, CA. These services, although basic, are vital to your dental health. During routine checkups, your dentist can evaluate the condition of your teeth, gums, and the soft tissues and bones of your mouth.

During your dental visit, your dentist will check if there is plaque on your teeth and tartar near your gumline, as these are often the causes of dental problems such as receding gums, cavities, and misaligned teeth.

Your neck, palate, and throat will also be inspected to see if there are signs of unusual growth, which could signify a condition such as cancer. Your tongue will be checked too, for unusual patches which could also signify an oral disease.

Scaling Away Tartar

After the inspection comes the cleaning process. Your dentist will perform scaling, which removes the tartar. Tartar cannot be dislodged by mere brushing and flossing at home because it is hard and attached to the gumline. When tartar is not removed, it builds up and becomes the breeding ground of bacteria that can bring infection and more disease. That is why dental professionals recommend making an appointment twice a year to have your teeth and gums cleaned.

Cosmetic Values

A dental cleaning is not only about removing plaque and tartar. The next step involves the removal of stains on your teeth through polishing. Stain removal is essential to have an attractive smile. Teeth with stains make you look older and your teeth appear dirty.

Once polishing is done, a professional flossing is next. This step ensures that any dental debris left after the cleaning and polishing is removed from the spaces between your teeth.

When cleaning has been completed, you will be asked to rinse your mouth. After rinsing, if you run your tongue behind your teeth, you will notice a smoother, cleaner feeling compared to what it felt like before you had your teeth cleaned.

Your oral health is priceless. By having regular checkups and cleanings, you can avoid dental diseases; that is a big step towards retaining the functionality of your mouth, teeth, gums, and jawbone and preserving the beauty of your smile.

Excellent care and wonderful front of house staff which makes such a difference. 5 stars! We were very happy with the dental work out son received in a caring and warm atmosphere.


I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
