The Teeth Cleaning Procedure
Often people dread professional teeth cleaning procedures because of prodding, bleeding, drills, and occasional jaw discomfort. However, we assure you that we make your teeth cleaning procedure simple and painless. Moreover, when you are well aware of what is going on, it certainly helps ease your stress and you can relax during the whole procedure.
Before the actual cleaning process starts, we take a physical exam of your mouth to ensure that there are no potential concerns. The next step is to use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar from between your teeth and around the gumline. If we see signs of gum disease, you may need to schedule cleanings more often. Once your mouth is tartar and plaque-free, we use a high-powered electric brush to clean your teeth. It is a deep cleaning process that removes any tartar that is left behind.
The next step is to floss your teeth, wherein we get deep between your teeth and determine potential concerning areas of your gum. This process is important to remove any leftover plaque. Once the cleaning process is executed, we provide you with a liquid fluoride to rinse your mouth thoroughly to remove any debris.
The last step of the cleaning process is fluoride treatment. It forms a protective shield around your teeth and combats against bacteria for months. The fluoride gel is put into a mouthpiece, which then goes over your teeth for a minute or so. Along with the gel, your teeth are also painted with fluoride varnish. Since the varnish hardens as soon as it comes in contact with saliva, you can effortlessly drink or eat immediately afterward.
Ensuring Proper Oral Hygiene
It is imperative to maintain adequate oral hygiene. While dental cleaning tends to cleanse your mouth thoroughly, you have to take essential steps from your end to ensure that your mouth stays clean and hygienic.
Regular brushing and flossing are the primary steps that you can take to ensure the overall health of your teeth. However, ensure that you do not brush more than twice a day as excessive brushing can wear off the enamel in your teeth. Along with your teeth, make sure to properly brush your gums, tongue, and sides of your cheek.
Oral hygiene goes beyond regular brushing and flossing. To ensure that your mouth remains clean and healthy, you must avoid unhealthy habits such as consuming soda, excessive sugar, and smoking. Typically, dental cleaning is scheduled twice a year to ensure that your teeth remain clean and to protect you from potential health risks.
