Common Questions About Teeth Cleaning

What happens during a dental cleaning appointment?

Teeth Examination: Your dental hygienist will begin by examining your teeth and gums for any signs of problems such as cavities, gum disease, or other oral health issues. This initial check ensures that any concerns are identified early.

Plaque and Tartar Removal: The hygienist will use special tools to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria, and if it’s not removed, it can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a professional. This step helps prevent cavities and gum disease.

Teeth Polishing: After removing plaque and tartar, your teeth will be polished to remove any surface stains, leaving your teeth smooth and shiny. This step helps to enhance the appearance of your smile and makes it harder for plaque to stick to your teeth in the future.

Is teeth cleaning painful?

Teeth cleaning is generally not painful. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. The process involves removing plaque and tartar buildup, which can cause slight pressure, but it shouldn’t be painful. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, inform your dental hygienist, who can take steps to ensure your comfort.

 

Numbing gels or local anesthetics can be used for those with higher sensitivity or anxiety about the procedure. Regular cleanings help prevent more painful dental issues, so maintaining your appointments is key to keeping your oral health in check.

What are other preventative dental care strategies?

Regular dental cleanings are essential, but our preventative services offer much more to ensure your oral health:

 

Dental Sealants

The grooves and pits in your back teeth are prone to cavities. Applying a protective sealant over these areas makes cleaning easier and reduces the risk of tooth decay.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, combats sensitivity, and can reverse early tooth decay. Dental insurance often covers fluoride treatments for children, and adults.

 

Oral Cancer Screenings

Early detection is key in fighting oral cancer, which can be caused by HPV, sun exposure, and tobacco or alcohol use. We include a comprehensive cancer screening as part of every routine checkup.

 

Diagnostic X-rays

Periodic X-rays help us detect new decay or bone loss around your teeth early. This allows us to provide minimally invasive treatments before issues become severe.
