What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?
Our dental hygienist will clean and polish your teeth during your dental cleaning. Who doesn’t love that clean teeth feeling! Our hygienists are skilled at removing that stuck on tartar or calculus you cannot get off at home. We don’t just focus on the teeth though. We will check your x-rays, your bite and your soft tissue to make sure everything looks great! Believe it or not, systemic problems elsewhere in your body can affect your mouth. Our hygienists make sure that you are aware of any changes they are seeing. Once a year we will perform a periodontal exam, which is critical for ensuring the foundation of your teeth is strong. We take digital x-rays as needed. X-rays are a critical diagnostic tool to show what we cannot see inside the teeth or bone. They help us catch changes in teeth and bone early!
After cleaning, our dentist will perform a final dental exam. This includes addressing any concerns you have discussed with our hygienist and once again checking all areas of your oral cavity. We will identify cavities, bone abnormalities, tissue concerns, systemic problems and discuss the best solution for solving any problems or concerns you may have.
What Are the Top Benefits of Regular Dental Cleanings?
There are several significant benefits of regular dental cleanings. They include:
- This allows us to identify dental issues you might have overlooked or not known about. Early detection allows us to treat them more quickly (and hopefully more conservatively)
- The regular removal of calculus and the bacteria harbored in gums helps to prevent gum disease.
- Clean teeth feel better!
We look forward to seeing you and please let us know if you have any questions.
