The most common procedure performed, a dental cleaning, serves as the forefront to optimal oral health. At our practice, you can expect a dental cleaning that is not only thorough, but also professional.
Professional Dental CleaningOur dentist or certified dental hygienist will perform 3 basic procedures that make up a dental cleaning:
Our dentists will use specific tools that are designed to wash away any calculus, or tartar, that has accumulated on your teeth. Tartar resides above and just below your gum line and must be removed in order to prevent tooth decay.
After our dentist uses a pressurized tool to blast away calculus, they will then use another hand instrument to further remove any remaining tartar.
After your teeth have been given a fresh clean, the dentist will use an abrasive substance that further removes plaque, while also removing minor surface stains for a completely fresh look. The polishing substance is flavorful so that children can enjoy it.
