Regular Dental Cleanings

Scheduling a regular dental exam and cleaning is important for your dental health for two reasons: because your dentist or dental hygienist has been professionally trained to clean and take care of your teeth in a way that you cannot do on your own within the walls of your home, and also because these exams give your dentist a chance to examine and evaluate your dental health in a proactive way that will help prevent any serious problems.

What to Expect

During your regular cleaning, you can expect your dentist and hygienist to perform special procedures:

  • Scaling
  • Root Planning
  • Polishing

Your Dental Hygienist

Throughout these steps and procedures, your hygienist will clean and remove plaque and tarter, from the usually unreachable spots of your teeth; your gums will be cleaned in pockets that your regular, at home, hygienic instruments cannot clean, and your teeth will be polished. During which time, the dentist and hygienist have a chance to check for abnormalities and begin to evaluate the condition of older work and restorations that have been performed for your dental health.
