The dentists at our Bloomfield Hills office recommend a teeth cleaning every six months when you come in for your regular checkup. A professional teeth cleaning from your dentist will get rid of excessive plaque buildup that you are unable to remove on your own by brushing at home. If this plaque is left untreated it could lead to decay of the gums and teeth.
We understand many people do not look forward to their teeth cleanings and may have anxiety when it comes to the dentist. However, by knowing what’s going on during this simple routine process, we think you will feel much more comfortable at your next teeth cleaning. The process will last about thirty minutes total and will begin with the dental hygienist performing a physical exam of your mouth. This physical exam is conducted by using a small mirror to check for any signs of cavities or gingivitis. The hygienist will also use a small tool called a scaler to lightly scrape plaque and tartar off the sides of your teeth. After this, the hygienist will use a high powered electric toothbrush to give your teeth the deep clean they really need. The teeth cleaning is then finished off with a professional flossing, a rinse, and a fluoride treatment.
The best way to prevent excessive plaque buildup is to schedule a professional teeth cleaning in Bloomfield Hills with an experienced dentist or dental hygienist every six months. Plaque that is left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine teeth cleaning lasts about 30 minutes and will usually include scaling and polishing.
