How Your Cleaning is Done
A routine dental cleaning lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. Dr. Riche will take a look at your most recent x-rays to further exam the structure of your teeth, as well as answer any questions you may have. After, one of our trained hygienists will set you up for a cleaning. Most patients find that these cleanings are painless and do not cause any discomfort, but if you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know.
There are two important steps to a dental cleaning. The first is scaling the teeth, where our hygienist removes the built up plaque and tartar from the surface of your smile. If you don't routinely visit our office, this build up quickly causes cavities, infections, tooth decay, and can lead to tooth loss. Our hygienist will also clean the pockets of your gums to remove the plaque there and lower your risks of gingivitis and gum disease.
The second step is polishing your teeth, removing any other lingering plaque and buffing your smile. These are available in different sizes because we know that no two smiles are the same. They clean the hard-to-reach places in your mouth and leave your teeth feeling like new!
