The most common procedure performed, a dental cleaning, serves as the forefront to optimal oral health. At our practice, you can expect a dental cleaning that is thorough and professional.
Professional Dental CleaningOur dentists or dental hygienists will perform 3 basic procedures that make up a dental cleaning:
Our staff may an ultrasonic scaler to remove calculus, also called tartar, that has accumulated on your teeth. Calculus resides above and just below your gum line and must be removed in order to prevent gum disease and tooth loss.
After the ultrasonic scaler, hand instruments are used to further remove any remaining tartar.
After the calculus has been thoroughly removed, the dentist will use a polish that further removes plaque, while also removing minor surface stains for a completely fresh look and feel. The polishing substance is flavorful so that children can enjoy it.
