Our Dental Cleaning Process
Step 1: Ultrasonic Cleaning. We typically begin our cleanings with tartar removal. This starts with an ultrasonic instrument whose familiar “whistling” sound you’ll probably recognize. We combine this instrument with a water rinse which flushes tartar away and keeps the mouth at the proper temperature.
Step 2: Residual Tartar Clean Up. To remove leftover tartar residue from the mouth, your hygienist will use a fine hand-held instrument to dislodge small tartar deposits from the surface of teeth and below the gumline.
Step 3: Polishing. When your teeth are thoroughly cleaned, your hygienist will polish your teeth with a small, rubber-headed device and refreshing gritty paste. You’ll enjoy the look and feel of smoother teeth and a rejuvenated mouth.
Step 4: Home Care Protocol. Of course, your dental care doesn’t begin and end at the dentist. So, we’ll recommend steps you can take to improve your home care routine.
