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.

I really recommend Smile Dental Clinics for any of your dental services.

It took me a while to actually sit down and write this review and there are a couple reasons why. First I didn't want to make a rash opinion by only coming maybe once or twice but now that I've been to this clinic about 4 times I thought it was time to finally give my thoughts. Secondly I am extremely terrified of dentist even now but I didn't want that to cloud the truth of the office. I want to start off by saying that all the staff are very kind and are always willing to answer your questions. Everything was explained to me and they were completely honest which is something that I like. Dr. Lala is very kind and has a way of calming even this crazy person down and is very accommodating. The dental assistants are all nice but I've had the pleasure of always running into one in particular named Erica and she always makes me feel at ease and makes me laugh. Truth be told, I know that it's scary and nerve wrecking going to a dentist but it's nice to go somewhere where they'll treat you nice throughout your visit.
