Dental Cleaning Procedures

 Dental cleanings sometimes get a bad reputation as being invasive and uncomfortable. The truth is that, for most people, the procedure is painless and straightforward. Most times, the reason behind this misunderstanding is the fact that people aren’t aware of what happens during a dental cleaning procedure. 

We provide various cosmetic, restorative, and general dental treatments for her patients. In this blog, we’re getting into dental cleanings and their benefits to help you understand the process better.

Dental Cleaning - Steps

There are six steps involved in a dental cleaning procedure, as follows:

  • The first step involves a complete dental examination. Our dentist will use a small circular mirror to assess all the nooks and crannies of your mouth and check for potential concerns.
  • The second step involves the dentist using a scaling device to remove all the tartar and plaque from the surface of your teeth. The duration of this step will depend on how much tartar buildup you have.
  • In the third step, the dentist will use a special electric toothbrush to give your teeth a deep cleaning. For this step, the doctor will also use a strong toothpaste that tastes similar to off-the-shelf alternatives and scrapes any foreign deposits off the teeth.
  • For the fourth step, your teeth will be thoroughly flossed to remove deposits in any hard-to-reach areas. The process helps clean out any remaining plaque and toothpaste debris.
  • Next, you will be asked to rinse your mouth with liquid fluoride to clean any leftover plaque.
  • Lastly, the dentist will place a mouthpiece with foamy or gel-like fluoride onto your teeth to help protect your teeth from cavities for months.
  • Opting for a dental cleaning twice a year will keep your teeth healthy and your smile radiant.
