Hi, I’m Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy of Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS. If you are one of my patients, welcome back. If this is your first visit, I appreciate you stopping by.
My Compassionate team and I love taking care of our valued patients in the San Luis Obispo area.
Today’s article is for smiles that are overdue for a cleaning and exam.
What is a Deep Dental Cleaning?
During dental deep cleanings, our hygienists thoroughly remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. By scaling and planing, they remove areas where bacteria can easily multiply.

An Exam is Not Just to Check for Cavities
After one of our skilled hygienists cleans your teeth, I perform a thorough examination. I check for overall tooth and gum health, the presence of decay, gum pocket depth, bite issues, and signs of oral cancer.
You Could Have a Dental Problem Without Knowing It
Some individuals mistakenly believe that they can skip dental visits if they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. This attitude is risky. Many dental dilemmas advance silently. When the patient experiences pain, much damage has been done. Gum disease, especially, often progresses unnoticed.
No Dental Insurance? No Problem!
If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about dental financing options. It is far less expensive to prevent dental problems than to treat them after they have become severe.
If you perform regular auto maintenance, you understand the wisdom of prevention. Don’t you value your smile far more than your car? Call Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS today to schedule preventative maintenance for your irreplaceable smile.
