Our skilled dental hygienist will use specialized tools to carefully remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. They will also perform a thorough scaling and polishing to remove surface stains, leaving your teeth clean and smooth.
After the cleaning, our dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your oral health. This involves a visual inspection, dental x-rays (if necessary), and an assessment of your gums, teeth, and overall oral structures.
Based on the findings of the examination, our dentist will discuss the results with you and develop a personalized treatment plan. They will explain any dental issues detected, provide recommendations for necessary treatments, and answer any questions you may have.
Following your dental cleaning, it’s important to follow post-operative instructions to maintain the cleanliness and health of your teeth and gums. Here are some general post-operative instructions for dental cleanings:
Continue to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily to remove plaque and food particles. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste. Proper oral hygiene practices will help prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar between cleanings.
After a dental cleaning, you may experience temporary sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. This is normal and should subside within a few days. If sensitivity persists or becomes severe, contact our office for further evaluation.
For the first few hours after your cleaning, it’s best to avoid consuming hot or cold foods and beverages, as well as sticky or hard foods. These can cause discomfort or even damage to your freshly cleaned teeth. Instead, opt for softer and lukewarm foods during this time.
Depending on your specific oral health needs, our dental team may provide you with additional post-operative instructions. This may include recommendations for specific oral care products, mouth rinses, or follow-up appointments. It’s important to follow these instructions carefully to promote optimal oral health.
Dental cleanings are typically recommended every six months. Be sure to schedule your next appointment to maintain your oral health and prevent any potential issues from progressing.
