Garland, TX applies teamwork in dental exams and cleanings

Dental Exams And Cleaning services from dentist in Garland When you become a Perfect 32 patient, you are not alone in maintaining a clean and disease-free mouth. Dr. Sakunthala Boppana and her team keep Garland, TX smiles radiantly healthy with dental exams and cleanings.

What is dental cleaning?

At a teeth cleaning appointment, the hygienist and dentist perform precise, well-ordered steps. At Perfect 32, hygiene treatment is rather personalized. However, this is the basic process:
  • Preliminary examination – The hygienist starts with inspection of soft tissues and each tooth. A small mirror is used to check all sides and surfaces for potential concerns. If the hygienist spots anything significant, the dentist may be called in before progressing to the cleaning stage.
  • Removal of plaque and tartar – Using a sterile instrument called a scaler, the hygienist removes bacterial plaque, paying special attention to the gum line and between teeth. These areas are easy to miss with brushing and flossing. Don’t be alarmed if you hear scraping – that is what it takes to get rid of hardened tartar. If you have a great deal of tartar, the hygienist talks with you about improved home care methods to make your next visit easier.
  • Polishing – Using a special high-powered electric brush and gentle paste, teeth receive a final cleaning that polishes enamel to a smooth luster.

  • Professional flossing – After you rinse the paste away, teeth are flossed to remove any remaining debris. This is a terrific opportunity to ask for a refresher course on proper home flossing technique.
  • Other treatments – If you opt for fluoride treatment or dental sealant to strengthen teeth and reduce risk of decay, those steps are performed on freshly-cleaned teeth.  X-rays may also be taken at this stage.
  • Expert examination – After a review of your x-rays and chart, Dr. Boppana thoroughly examines your mouth. She talks with you to learn if you are experiencing any symptoms of dental problems. If a further procedure is needed, she explains treatment options and answers questions.
