What is Teeth Cleaning?
Teeth cleaning is the process of removing bacterial plaque or tartar (hardened plaque deposits). This procedure includes multiple treatments with the aid of various tools and instruments.
As a critical procedure in preventive dentistry, this treatment will help eliminate future oral health issues like cavities, tooth decay, or gum disease.
Teeth Cleaning Procedure
Dental cleaning needs multiple sittings with your dentist. The following are the various treatments in the teeth cleaning procedure offered at 5th Ave Smile.
The visual exam by the doctor includes digital X-rays and similar diagnostic procedures. This is done to assess the risks of developing other oral problems.
Hardened Plaque or Tartar Removal
The plaque or tartar removal process includes tooth scaling and polishing, and debridement, as per your unique requirements.
In this procedure, the dentist makes use of a specially designed high-powered brush. This deep brushing will give a polishing effect on your teeth by removing surface stains.
Picasso laser treatment can help shape gums, remove soft tissue lesions, expose unerupted teeth, or provide relief from canker sores or mouth ulcers.
At the end of the treatment procedure, the dentist will floss your teeth to remove plaque and other hardened materials accumulated below the gum line and between teeth.
