What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning?

One of the best ways to prepare yourself for dental cleaning is understanding the process. Our teeth cleaning process includes:

  • Physical Exam – Our dental hygienist will use a mirror to check your mouth for any signs of problems. If we detect any issues, we'll address them before proceeding with the cleaning.
  • Remove Plaque and Tartar – We use a scaler to eliminate plaque and tartar buildup between the gum line and your teeth.
  • Gritty Toothpaste – We brush your teeth with a special gritty toothpaste made to finely scrub your teeth. 
  • Flossing – A professional flossing enables us to reach deep between your teeth.
  • Rinsing – We will rinse your mouth to eliminate any leftover plaque buildup
  • Fluoride Treatment – A fluoride treatment is applied to help protect your teeth and fight cavities.

Deep Dental Cleaning Procedure

A deep dental cleaning, also called scaling and root planning, allows us to get beneath your gum line to remove tartar, buildup, and plaque. The main difference between a routine and deep dental cleaning is that we clean below the gum line during a deep dental cleaning procedure. Before the procedure, we often perform dental x-rays and an oral examination to determine if you have periodontitis and learn more about your oral health. We determine the infected areas of the gum where you may need deep dental treatments to boost your oral health.

How Often Do You Need a Dental Cleaning?

Routine dental cleaning is essential for your oral health. If you need deep dental cleaning, we will determine the severity to recommend a follow-up cleaning routine. The average suggestion for

routine dental cleanings is two cleanings per year. If a patient has severe gum disease, we recommend more frequent routine dental cleanings.
