Did you know that your smile is your greatest feature? There’s no better way to take care of it than with your dental specialists! Teeth cleanings are the best way to prevent bacteria and plaque buildup causing early gum disease. It’s our specialty to give you a comfortable procedure while maximizing your oral health!
Your teeth cleaning will be performed by one of our hygienists. Initially, we will examine your mouth with a proper dental examination. Your hygienist will look for signs of inflammation and any other abnormalities before beginning the procedure.
The teeth cleaning procedure involves three steps: scaling, flossing, and toothpaste. Your hygienist will use a scaler instrument to remove plaque and tartar along the gum line. Plaque is a sticky substance that contains hundreds of bacteria. Tartar is hardened plaque on your teeth’s enamel when plaque is left untreated.
Then, we will use a high-powered electric toothbrush to thoroughly clean your teeth after plaque removal. The toothpaste used has a gritty consistency and you are given the option to choose from an array of flavors! Professional flossing is important during your teeth cleaning procedure because it helps us identify any issues with gum inflammation (i.e. bleeding gums).
