Regular dental cleaning is an essential part of a healthy mouth and smile. This routine procedure is performed in our offices by our specially trained oral hygienists, and will leave your teeth feeling stronger, cleaner and healthier!
Before the cleaning begins, we will need to thoroughly examine the mouth. Our dental hygienist uses a small mirror to examine the mouth to make sure there are no serious issues before proceeding with the cleaning.
We will then begin the cleaning process by removing plaque and tartar from the tooth surface, near the gumline. Plaque builds up over time, and if left long enough it hardens and becomes tartar. The only way to remove tartar from teeth is with a scaler, during a dental cleaning, so be sure to schedule a cleaning if you notice tartar building up on your teeth.
Once the tartar has been removed, we give your teeth a thorough brushing and polishing using a special, electric toothbrush and an extra gritty toothpaste. These tools remove any leftover plaque and tartar from the tooth, and thoroughly cleans the tooth surface.
We then thoroughly floss the teeth, which gives us the opportunity to examine the gums and identify any trouble spots. After the flossing, you can rinse your mouth so leftover toothpaste and plaque goes down the drain, and the spaces between the teeth are left clean and healthy!
The final step in our cleaning process is to apply a fluoride treatment to the teeth to strengthen the enamel, and help you fight off cavities. Fluoride looks and feels like gel, and is applied to the teeth in a mouthpiece for about a minute. The results if the fluoride treatment lasts for months, and should leave you protected until your next visit.
