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 tooth decay, and other concerns.
How Much Time Does the Procedure Take?
A professional cleaning takes thirty minutes to one hour to complete. During the procedure, you will be able to recline and relax in our massage and heated dental chairs while we clean and examine your teeth.
Removal of Plaque and Tartar
Brushing and flossing at home is a good method of removing dental plaque. But do you know once the plaque hardens and becomes tartar or calculus we must perform the removal using special tools and instruments such as scalers to treat such deposits. The method is quick and painless.
After removing the calculus from the surface of your teeth, we use a special tooth polish and brush to polish your teeth. The sound of brushing may be different to you at first, but this step makes sure to clean your teeth properly.
After polishing your teeth, we move towards flossing between your teeth. It will help us remove any plaque that cannot be removed with polishing.
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’s surface.
We will carry out a 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 at a minimum of twice a year to maintain your pearly whites.
You will also be given instructions on how to keep dental diseases and infections at bay. We will also recommend suitable products to use while maintaining oral hygiene practices.
