What Is Dental Check-Up And Cleaning?
Many people are currently scared of teeth cleanings. Between the strange noises and occasional jaw discomfort, it’s easy to understand their apprehension. However, for the most part, a teeth cleaning process is simple and painless.
Teeth Cleaning Process
Preliminary Dental Examination
During a comprehensive oral exam, soft tissues, each tooth, and all sides of your mouth are inspected by the hygienist for any signs of gingivitis (inflamed gums) or other potential concerns. Dr. Boppana will review the x-rays and approves the treatment plan.
Removal Of Plaque And Tartar
Using a small mirror to guide, the dental hygienist uses a sterile instrument called a scaler to remove bacterial plaque. During this process, special attention is paid to the gum line and area between teeth because these are commonly missed areas with brushing and flossing. Don’t be alarmed if you hear scraping because that is what it takes to get rid of hardened tartar. In case of large tartar buildup, the hygienist will discuss your home care methods and suggests improvements.
The more tartar, the longer it takes to scrape it out. Brushing and flossing stops plaque from building up and hardening into tartar. Once tartar builds up, the only option is to get dental cleaning done at your garland dental office.
After the tartar is completely removed tooth receives a final cleaning to polish the enamel using a toothpaste that smells and tastes like regular daily toothpaste to give teeth a smooth luster.
Teeth are flossed to reach the deep between the teeth and locate any potential gum bleeding spots. This is a terrific opportunity to ask for a refresher course on proper home flossing techniques.
Teeth are rinsed using a fluoride liquid to get rid of any debris.
Optional treatments like fluoride or dental sealants help strengthen teeth and reduce the risk of decay. If you opt-in, these are performed on freshly cleaned teeth. If necessary, X-rays are retaken at this stage.
