There are many benefits associated with getting dental cleanings at our office. They include but are not limited to the following:
- Cavity prevention
- Maintains your natural teeth
- Brighter smile
- Fresh breath
After we complete a thorough dental examination, we will perform a dental cleaning. Your specialist will utilize a scaling instrument, mirror, and polishing tool for plaque and tartar removal. A scaling instrument is used to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and around your gum line. You may experience temporary discomfort as the specialist is removing plaque buildup.
Afterward, your teeth will be professionally brushed for optimum cleaning. You will have a choice of toothpaste flavors to personalize your cleaning. This specialized toothpaste is gritty in substance to remove leftover plaque and efficiently scrub your teeth. After rinsing, the teeth will feel smooth and your enamel is strengthened.
Flossing may take place if there are remaining food particles or plaque in between your gums. If you have sensitive gums, you may experience minimal bleeding. Your teeth will be rinsed again in order to eliminate floss debris and toothpaste. You can expect to leave your dental cleaning with polished pearly whites you can be proud of!
