WHAT IS DENTAL CHECK-UP AND CLEANING?

Many people currently are scared of teeth cleanings. Between the strange noises and occasional jaw discomfort, it’s easy to understand their apprehension. However for most part, a teeth cleaning process is simple and painless.

Here are the basic steps your garland dental hygienist will perform during your visit

  • 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, dental hygienist uses a sterile instrument called 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 build up, hygienist will discuss your home care methods and suggests improvements.

The more the 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 get a dental cleaning done at your garland dental office.
