What Is a Professional Teeth Cleaning?
While your regular at-home oral health habits are crucial to preventing tooth decay, there can still be a buildup of plaque, which is why most dental professionals recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned every six months. Plaque is a sticky, soft film that gathers on your enamel in cracks and crevices, and it contains millions of bacteria, which cause gum disease and tooth decay.
Professional teeth cleaning by the experts at Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics will remove plaque, tartar and stains that have accumulated on your teeth. Quality professional cleaning of your teeth is a crucial part of your good oral hygiene and is needed regularly to maintain the overall health of your teeth and gums.
What are the Benefits of Teeth Cleaning?
In between routine cleanings, good oral hygiene at home is a vital component of your oral health habits; however, even with routine brushing and flossing, tartar will still develop. At Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics, our experienced hygienists use highly specialized instruments to gently remove these deposits without causing harm to the teeth. These appointments also give the dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention.
What is the Procedure for Teeth Cleaning?
Most of our dental cleanings last between 30 minutes to an hour, and they are performed in a resting position in our ultra-comfortable dental chairs. The first tool that is generally used to clean your teeth is an ultrasonic instrument. Once larger pieces of tartar are dislodged, then we will switch to finer hand-held instruments. Often referred to as curettes or scalers, these tools are designed to eliminate smaller deposits on the teeth and smooth the tooth surfaces. Once the surfaces of the teeth are smooth, we will polish your teeth using a slow-speed handpiece containing a soft rubber cup, which spins at the tip to smooth teeth.
