Your dental hygienist will provide a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums.
They will begin by using a scaler to remove any tartar and plaque build-up in your mouth.
Next they will use an electric polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains and plaque that was not removed by scaling, followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.
Your hygienist will also provide you with advice and recommendations for preventive hygiene care at home between appointments.
Your cleaning may also include a fluoride treatment at our dental office. Fluoride is a natural mineral commonly used in dentistry to help rebuild the minerals in the enamel of your teeth to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
We provide fluoride treatment for adults and children to help strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay.
Your dentist will complete an oral exam of your teeth and gums to assess your oral health.
These thorough dental exams allow your dentist to diagnose issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, and signs of oral cancer, and make a plan to treat them.
