How Are Teeth Professionally Cleaned?

During a professional dental cleaning, your hygienist will use a variety of instruments to gently clean both your gums and the surface of your teeth. They may first use a cavitron, which is a machine that vibrates to gently loosen and remove stains, plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Then, to make sure teeth are perfectly clean, the hygienist will gently scrape to remove any additional tartar or plaque. Finally, your teeth will be polished with a special kind of toothpaste and flossed.

The professional cleaning is an easy and pain-free process, although the presence of gingivitis — receding gums — may cause patients to feel a slight amount of discomfort. Your comfort is a top priority for us, so if at any time you feel uncomfortable, please tell us right away so we can take measures, such as applying a topical numbing gel, to alleviate your discomfort during scaling and polishing. And remember that taking these simple measures now can help avoid the need to undergo more invasive and costly treatments for cavities or gum disease down the road.

We offer basic and advanced dental cleaning services including:

  • Adult Basic Cleaning (over 14 years old)
  • Child Basic Cleaning (2-13 years old)
  • Full Mouth Debridement (FMD)

Oral Home Care

Your oral health depends on a combination of home care (brushing and flossing) and seeing your dentist every six months for a professional exam and teeth cleaning. You may wonder why it’s necessary to visit the dentist so often if you are taking great care of your teeth and gums on your own, but even the most diligent patient can miss hard-to-reach areas of the mouth that are vulnerable to tooth decay and gingivitis. A check-up every six months helps ensure that your dentist spots any problems such as cavities and gum disease early in their development.

If you need a cleaning, call us at (623) 235-8195 or schedule online for an appointment today.

Update : 5/11/20. I just cant say how amazing Dr. Harsini is he is so attentive, detailed- i had to get a little work done, and when i say no pain! No pain what so ever. Having the patient in a comfortable stat seems to be one of his priority and the staff too. Kudos to Jose the assistant too,was great. Just beyond impressed!!!Today was my first time in this office, after over 9years going to Thomas dental in Phoenix. From the day I made a call to set my first appt- the lady was so nice and sweet.. I wanted to reach thru the phone and hug her. I got a lil tour in the office they explained what each area is for. The Dr. Was just amazing wonderful.. didn't waste time but took the time to chat a lil with me, which was nice. Daisy was amazing and super sweet. Prices are FANTASTIC! Reason why I left Thomas dental is because they quality of service is not like it was before AND not to mention new management tried to pull as fast one on me. Tried to tell my my treatment was over 1,200!!! And smile dental less then 200.00That was disgusting and they tried doing the same thing to my son. We have been patients for years. New management is money hungry very sad.But thankful I found smile dental. Oh and another bonus- their equipment is pretty high tech!! Love it.

Best dental services I’ve had in some time. I’d been without 2 molars for over 5 years and after I got them implanted, they fit perfectly and felt like they’d been there the whole time. Thanks for making eating easier again!

I have gotten my preventative care with Luis done at this practice as well as an implant crown. After waiting 2.5 years to get that crown (life happens), Dr. Harsini and team did an expert job at designing and making sure my crown was perfect. It fits so well and I am FINALLY able to smile confidently again!! Being in the dental field myself, I was so happy to have my smile back. Thank you!!
