CLEANING

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF TEETH CLEANING?

Teeth cleaning is a process where your dental hygienist will clean your teeth with the help of a set of tools. The procedure is usually painless but might feel a little uncomfortable while in progress. Getting your teeth cleaned professionally at least once or twice a year is also a good way to keep a check on other problems like cavities and gum disease. The professionals at Smooth Dental & Orthodontics will help you maintain healthy teeth with some of the best teeth cleaning Santa Ana have to offer.

The aim is to remove plaque, tartar and stains that have accumulated on the teeth. Despite routine brushing and flossing tartar can develop and routine cleanings, along with regular checkups, will help you not only have a great looking smile and fresh breath, but can also help prevent gum disease and reduce the risk of tooth loss and future dental problems.

ADVANTAGES OF TEETH CLEANING

At Smooth Dental and Orthodontics, we take the utmost care to ensure that we give you a thorough oral checkup when you come in for a cleaning.

If there are any other dental or periodontal problems, we will be sure to also detect them and advise you on a course of treatment.

The teeth cleanup itself helps to prevent any further problems like cavities and gum disease and keeps your teeth and gums strong and healthy.

HOW IS IT DONE?

At Smooth Dental and Orthodontics, the dental hygienist will first give you a full oral checkup. During the checkup, the hygienist will check for plaque, tartar, cavities, and any signs of gum disease.

At Smooth Dental and Orthodontics, the dental hygienist will first give you a full oral checkup. During the checkup, the hygienist will check for plaque, tartar, cavities, and any signs of gum disease.

Following the checkup, the hygienist will use a tool called a scaler to remove any plaque and tartar. Plaque contains the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease; when left on the tooth too long, the plaque hardens to form tartar. Tartar can only be removed during professional teeth cleanings.

After all the plaque and tartar have been removed, the teeth are brushed with an electric toothbrush and a special granular toothpaste. The brushing helps to polish the teeth and remove any leftover bacteria from the teeth and gums. A professional flossing is then done on the teeth to remove any material that might have collected between teeth.

Finally, a fluoride rinse and fluoride treatment will be applied to help strengthen and harden your teeth. The dental hygienist will also instruct you on how to brush and floss your teeth in the future to prevent plaque buildup in any problematic areas.

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
