Do you want to ensure a beautiful, healthy and long-lasting smile? Cleaning your teeth well at home is an important part of making it happen. By combining regular brushing and flossing with visits to your dentist at least twice a year, you’ll keep your smile healthy and help protect your smile from tooth decay and gum disease. During your professional cleanings, the hygienist uses professional tools, such as the ultrasonic, to remove tartar, stains, plaque and bacteria build-up that have accumulated between visits.

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.
