The health of your entire body is linked to the health of your mouth. A professional Dental Cleaning is recommended by The American Dental Association every six months to ensure your teeth stay healthy and your smile stays beautiful.
What to Expect:
During your cleaning, your hygienist will perform an exam to check for any sign of gum disease or other health problems. Then, your dental hygienist will carefully clean your teeth with an ultrasonic instrument and traditional hand scaling instruments as well. This will remove any stain, soft plaque, and hard buildup (tartar) from your teeth. Then your hygienist will polish, floss, and apply fluoride if necessary. Finally, your hygienist will go over oral hygiene instructions for you to work on at home. If you have any anxiety about your cleaning, be sure to let your hygienist know. The cleaning will be followed by a dental examination by the dentist to examine your teeth, gums and jaw.
