What happens in a dental cleaning?
The process of cleaning happens in proper sequence initially when the patient is seated on the dental chair and an oral exam is done which includes checking your teeth and gums to see if there is any gum disease. We may ask to do a X-ray of your teeth if you are a new patient or if you have not had one in a while to make sure your teeth do not have any major problems. The next step is to remove the tartar and plaque off your gums and teeth. After removal of calculus, a polishing paste is applied to remove stains if present on teeth. Finally, fluoride application is done at the end of the procedure.
There are different types of dental cleanings, and it can be good to know the difference between each type in order to see which dental cleaning is suitable for you.
