What a Dental Cleaning Involves

What a Dental Cleaning InvolvesRegular dental visits are essential to have optimal oral health. During these visits, one of the most common procedures that you can undergo is dental cleaning. People who have dental phobia generally fear any trip to the dentist. However dental cleaning is a painless experience and is important in preventing some dental issues that can arise in the future. If you are planning to have a dental cleaning soon, it might help if you know what happens during such a visit. Our dentists are skilled and experienced to offer you optimal dental cleaning services to ensure you maintain your dental hygiene.

Oral Examination

This is the first step that occurs in a dental cleaning procedure. The dentists perform a comprehensive examination to determine the state of your oral hygiene. This will therefore be important to determine the level of cleaning you require for optimal oral hygiene. The dentist will use a concave mirror to check for issues such as dark spots, tartar and plaque build-up, and inflamed gums.


This is the process of removing the tartar and plaque from the surface of your teeth. The dental hygienist uses a scaler to perform this procedure and also removes the same from your gums and in between your teeth. For large deposits of the buildup, the hygienist can use an ultrasonic scaler that gently vibrates to remove the tartar and plaque.

Polishing and flossing

Our dentist will then polish your teeth and also remove any stains from your teeth. The dentist uses an electric tool and a special paste to polish your tooth. After the polishing, the dentist will floss your teeth to ensure there is no paste or plaque left on the surface of your tooth.
