How it works


Teeth cleaning may be an apprehensive procedure for many. It is understood that the procedure does make you feel uneasy with all the noise and the prodding, but understanding what happens during the procedure might help ease the apprehension.


Physical examination

The teeth cleaning procedure starts with a physical examination of your whole mouth. As your dentist, we will check your teeth and gums for inflammation and other signs of concern before beginning the actual cleaning process. This will include: – Oral cancer examination – Checking biting, chewing and swallowing pattern – Teeth decay examination – Examination of the gums

Plaque and tartar removal

Once it is confirmed that there are no signs of worry, we will proceed with the removal of plaque and tartar. Regular brushing and flossing stop the plaque from building up. Plaque that builds up, hardens into tartar, which can only be removed by a dentist. To many, this step is the least favorite part of the teeth cleaning process, as there will be a lot of scraping depending on the tartar build-up.

Cleaning with a gritty toothpaste

Once the tartar is removed with a scalar, we use a high-powered electric brush to brush your teeth and remove any remaining tartar. We make use of a toothpaste with a gritty consistency that will gently scrub your teeth. This procedure can be done twice a year.


Regular flossing at home does have a positive influence on your teeth, but when we do the flossing during your cleaning procedure, we can get deeper between your teeth, which helps us locate potential trouble spots. It also helps remove any leftover plaque or toothpaste from the cleaning process.


Rinsing helps get rid of the left-over debris. Most times, rinsing is done using a rinse containing liquid fluoride.

Fluoride treatment

Fluoride treatment is the last step in the teeth cleaning process. It helps keep your teeth protected from cavities and other minor dental problems for several months. Fluoride gel or paste is applied to a mouthpiece that is fitted to your mouth and kept for a minute, or fluoride varnish may be painted to your teeth using a small brush which hardens when it comes in contact with saliva.


We, at Smooth Dental Group, suggest that you get your teeth cleaned twice a year. We also provide other procedures such as teeth polishing, adjustment of dentures, sealant for children, among others, based on the health of your teeth. During the procedure, if our expert dentist finds anything of concern, then you will be asked for other dental exams. We consider teeth cleaning the best procedure to keep optimum dental health.



Regular teeth cleaning offers a lot of benefits such as:
The result of the process is cleaner and whiter teeth as the stains from your teeth are removed.
Teeth cleaning prevents cavity and stops tooth loss. It helps to reduce bad breath
Oral cancer can be detected and the necessary action taken before it is too late.
It is a preventive measure that helps you keep your teeth healthy for long.
It helps to boost your overall health as there is a correlation between good oral health and overall health.

I was referred to this dentist by a friend and was pleasantly impressed by the dentist and all her staff. Everyone was extremely professional and made sure to educate me on my dental work. I had to have deep cleaning and 1 tooth extracted. The dental staff kept me informed as to what to expect from each procedure and educated me on the proper care after each procedure. The dentist even called me at home after the procedures to see how I was feeling. !!! Another important feature was all the preventative education I was provided. I would definitely refer anyone to this dentist!!feature
