WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DENTAL CLEANING?

During your examination, we want to learn everything we can about your unique smile and any concerns that may need attention. Dr. Joseph and his team of hygienists will thoroughly inspect each tooth surface, the gum tissue, your bite, your jaw, any existing restorations like crowns or fillings that are in place, and more. We’ll use digital X-rays as well to view areas that aren’t accessible to the naked eye. Once our team has reviewed all of this valuable information, we’ll be capable of sitting down with you and devising a personalized treatment plan.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DENTAL CLEANING?

During your cleanings, the talented team will want to eliminate as much plaque and tartar from your smile as possible. Plaque is a sticky and clear substance filled with harmful bacteria, and it’s constantly forming on your teeth throughout each day. If it’s left in place too long, it’ll start to harden into tartar, which can only be removed by professionals like us. We’ll eliminate these threats of decay, polish away minor staining, and leave your mouth feeling refreshed. If untreated, a significant issue such as gum disease and tooth decay could occur.

DEEP CLEANING FOR GUM DISEASES AND INFECTIONS (SEDATION OFFERED)

There are several ways to treat gum disease and what we recommend based on how far the condition has progressed. To start, we typically recommend that our patients have standard teeth cleaning. If you are only at the beginning stages of the disease, that is likely all you will need to return your gums to good health. However, if the condition has progressed, you may need a deep cleaning. Deep cleaning typically is conducted in four appointments. Your mouth is broken up into quadrants, with each area being cleaned on a different day.

In a deep cleaning, the gums need to be pulled away from the teeth so a dentist can scrape off the plaque and tartar underneath the gum tissue. Naturally, this procedure can cause discomfort, which is why we offer sedation during these sessions. When your teeth are cleaned in this manner, we use Nitrous or even Oral medication if you prefer, which Dr. Joseph and his team have specialized training in.
