Your teeth cleaning involves:
Plaque and Tartar Removal
After your dental exam, we will remove plaque and tartar along the gum line and teeth. We use a scaler and small mirror to reach each affected area. Plaque is bacteria buildup that causes cavities and gum disease. It eventually turns into tartar, which can be difficult to remove at home. Our teeth cleaning tools and techniques remove plaque and tartar efficiently.
After plaque and tartar is removed, we polish your teeth to remove surface stains. We use a power toothbrush with a gritty toothpaste to scrub your teeth.
You may receive a fluoride treatment to further protect your teeth from decay. The treatment consists of a mouthpiece filled with fluoride. The treatment stays in your mouth for about a minute before rinsing. Not all patients will have fluoride treatment. Those who have moderate and severe decay are candidates for the treatment.
Does teeth cleaning hurt?
Teeth cleaning is not painful. You may feel light pressure while your teeth are polished. This is to ensure surface stains are removed effectively.
Will my teeth be whiter after the procedure?
You may notice a brighter smile as surface stains are removed. For a true whiter smile, ask us about teeth whitening. It’s a professional procedure that whitens up to 8 shades lighter.
