The typical prophylactic cleaning includes:

    Removing Plaque and Tartar

    During the initial cleaning stage, we will use a small hand-held mirror and a dental scaler to scrape plaque and tartar around your gum line and between your teeth. The more tartar you have, the more scaling will need to be completed before moving on to the next stage.

  • null

    Teeth Polishing

    Once the tartar has been removed from your teeth, we will use a gritty toothpaste and high-powered toothbrush to polish your teeth. This is completely painless, removes surface stains, and makes your teeth smooth and shiny.

  • null

    Flossing

    As with your at-home dental health regimen, any good cleaning includes flossing. Professional flossing not only removes leftover toothpaste and microscopic particles that may remain between the teeth, it also helps us detect potential warning signs of gum disease.

  • null

    Rinsing

    For the final step, you will be asked to rinse your mouth thoroughly. This will help eliminate any grittiness that remains from having your teeth polished, particles that were removed during flossing, and help activate the salivary glands. Depending on the needs of the patient, we may recommend a fluoride rinse for extra protection.
