Why Do I Need A Dental Cleaning?

Perhaps the most important part of your dental cleaning is the removal of tartar. Tartar is plaque that has hardened onto your teeth and can’t be removed without the assistance of your dentist. If plaque and tartar aren’t removed, they can eventually lead to severe tooth decay, gum disease, and many other dental problems.

What To Expect During Your Dental Cleaning & Exam

Your cleaning and exam should only take between 20-30 minutes. Below is what to expect during your appointment:

  • Our local dentist or one of our friendly and knowledgeable hygienists will do an exam of your mouth to check for red, swollen, or bleeding gums, tooth decay, open sores, or any other concerns.
  • Scaling and root planing will be done on your teeth. This is the process through which the tartar and plaque will be removed from all the surfaces of your teeth. The method used will depend on the amount and severity of the plaque and tartar.
  • You will receive dental X-rays.
