What Happens When You Come in for a Dental Cleaning at Our Clinic?
When you come in for a dental cleaning, there are several procedures that our dental specialists will undertake. The first important procedure will be to examine your dental condition to determine what type of dental cleaning is necessary for proper hygiene. For patients with severe plaque and tartar problems, deep cleaning will be undertaken. Scaling and regular cleaning are for patients with minor to mild plaque and tartar issues. Since dental cleaning is performed by a dental hygienist, they will seek a go-ahead from our dentist if there are no dental conditions such as gum disease detected.
After the examination, the hygienist is allowed to continue with the dental cleaning, removal of plaque and tartar follows. The hygienist uses a small mirror for guidance while removing the plaque and tartar using a scaler. They ensure to clean your gum line and most importantly in between teeth since these are areas where food particles and bacteria can get trapped.
After Removal of Plaque and Tartar
After the hygienist removes the plaque and tartar, they will brush your teeth using a specialized electric brush. This is an effective way of performing deep cleaning at our offices. A gritty toothpaste is used during the brushing of your teeth and helps to effectively scrub the surface of your teeth. Our dentists recommend that you undergo this type of cleaning at least twice a year for excellent results.
Flossing performed by an expert usually follows the brushing of teeth. This is not the regular flossing that you perform at home, and it is essential to remove any tartar that may have been left during the scaling and brushing procedures. It is also vital for removing any leftover toothpaste from the initial stages of the cleaning process.
Finishing the Cleaning Process
After flossing your teeth, our dentist will rinse your mouth to wash away any debris left during the initial stages. Our dentist can provide you with a specialized liquid that has fluoride. If the liquid does not contain liquid fluoride, the dentist can apply fluoride treatment as the concluding step of your cleaning procedure. Fluoride is critical for strengthening your enamel and leaves you with strong healthy teeth.
