Dental Cleanings

Dental Cleanings

It is essential to maintain routine oral hygiene by regularly brushing and flossing your teeth. Regular brushing and flossing are necessary to avoid build-up of plaque and tartar. We recommend that along with routine oral home care, patients must regularly have a visit to the dentist once in six months to have their teeth cleaned in a professional manner. We advise this as proper oral cleaning would help prevent diseases of the gum, bad odor, remove stains and discoloration, and most importantly obtain oral hygiene tips and advises from the professionals.

What is the procedure involved in dental cleaning?

In a typical session of dental cleaning, our dentists will first undertake a proper examination of the patient’s teeth. Dentists will use cleaning tools to slowly remove the dirt from the teeth. This will remove most of the existing plaque and tartar. Next, they will be further removed from the teeth by using a scraping tool. Then comes the procedure of polishing the teeth that would leave it bright and radiant. After polishing, the teeth will be flossed. This will leave it smooth and clean.

How long would a procedure take?

At an average, a dental cleaning session would take an hour and forty-five minutes. What are the types of dental cleaning? We offer our patients with different types of dental cleaning at our facility.
