What To Expect During A Dental Cleaning?

Posted on 11/22/2021 by Henricksen Family Dental
What To Expect During A Dental Cleaning?You should ensure that after every six months you go for a dental cleaning procedure. These checks verify that your teeth, gums and overall oral hygiene is well and treatment of oral issues identified begins immediately. Your oral check-up includes a dental cleaning procedure. Here are some things you should expect in a dental cleaning procedure.

A Dental Assessment

A dental exam starts by examining your entire mouth. There is the use of a small mirror to check any signs of inflamed gums, cavities, or other probable dental issues. If there are no such issues, removal of plaque and tartar follows.

Plaque And Tartar Removal

Removal of the tartar and plaque around your gum line follows using a scaler with the guidance of the small mirror. You are likely to hear scraping because tartar is very hard to remove. Brushing your teeth and regular flossing minimizes the formation of plaque and transformation into tartar.

Toothpaste Cleaning

After your mouth is tartar-free, cleaning of your teeth begins using gritty toothpaste and a high-powered electric toothbrush. The tool helps in the removal of any tartar left behind and offers your mouth and teeth a deep clean.


Although you may be flossing your teeth at home when you go for a medical check be sure to have a professional flossing session. The experience will ensure the cleaning of all delicate and unreachable parts of your mouth.


After finishing the toothpaste cleaning and professional flossing you go for rinsing. Rinsing takes place to remove any particles left behind in your mouth and recommendations advise for the use of liquid fluoride.

Application Of Fluoride Treatment

The last step of your cleaning process requires the treatment of your teeth using fluoride. The fluoride assists your teeth to fight against cavities in the months that follow. Please visit our offices today and have the best dental cleaning experience of your life.
