Teeth cleaning is one of the most popular procedures we perform to clean your teeth and help you maintain your oral hygiene. It is necessary to remove the accumulation of plaque, tartar, and other substances from your mouth and also save you from a tooth infection, tooth decay, and other concerns.
You can schedule an appointment with us for the procedure. We will ensure that you do not feel anxious and perform teeth cleaning smoothly.
How Much Time Does the Procedure Take?
A professional teeth cleaning takes thirty minutes to one hour to complete. During the procedure, we will make you lie back comfortably on our dental chair and examine your teeth. If required, we may also perform X-rays of your teeth.
Removal of Plaque and Tartar
Brushing and flossing at home is a good method of removing dental plaque. But do you know these practices do not reach the plaque hiding between your teeth and gum line? We perform the removal using special tools and instruments such as scalers to treat such calculus. The method is quick and painless.
After removing the calculus from the surface of your teeth, we use a gritty tooth polish and a special brush to polish your teeth. The sound of brushing may annoy you at first, but this step makes sure to clean your teeth properly.
After polishing your teeth with gritty toothpaste, we move towards flossing between your teeth using our professional flossing instrument. It will help us remove the tartar and plaque that you couldn’t remove during flossing. Professional flossing also helps us know where the bleeding of gums occurs.
We will spray some water into your mouth and ask you to swish it, and once you are ready, we will use suction to remove the water from your mouth. This step helps remove any remaining tooth polish left on your teeth’ surface.
Once all the steps are completed successfully, we will carry out a final checkup of your mouth. Along with this, we will also give you instructions on how to maintain your oral hygiene. We will teach you the basics of brushing and flossing your teeth and recommend professional dental cleaning twice a year to maintain your pearly whites.
You will also be given instructions on what to eat and what to quit to keep dental diseases and infections at bay. We will also recommend suitable products to use while maintaining oral hygiene practices.
