A physical exam                                                                                                           

A physical exam of your entire mouth leads most teeth cleanings. The dental hygienists check around for any signs of gingivitis or other potential concerns around your teeth and gums during this physical exam.

Removing plaque and tartar

The dental hygienist uses a scaler guided by a small mirror to remove the plaque and tartar around your gum line and in between your teeth. The more tartar there in your mouth, the more they will require to scrape a particular spot.

 Regular brushing and flossing can stop the plaque buildup in the mouth. This plaque eventually hardens into tartar. Once you have tartar, it can only be removed at your dentist’s office.

Gritty toothpaste cleaning

After the tartar has been cleaned, the hygienist brushes them with a high powered electric brush. This is a great way to get a deep clean and remove any tartar left behind from the scalar. Professional cleanings use toothpaste that taste like regular toothpaste but has a gritty texture that scrubs your teeth.

Expert flossing

Even if you floss regularly at home, nothing beats an expert flossing session. This helps your dental hygienist locate any potential trouble spots where your gums might bleed by looking deep between your teeth. Having professional floss your teeth removes any leftover plaque or toothpaste from earlier in the cleaning process.  

Applying fluoride treatment

You rinse out your mouth to get rid of any debris, possibly with a liquid that contains liquid fluoride. To wrap up the dental cleaning, a fluoride treatment is the final procedure done to protect your teeth to help fight against cavities for several months.

For this step, they place the sticky paste or a foamy gel into a mouthpiece the fitted over your teeth. This is usually left on your teeth for sixty seconds. The fluoride varnish is then painted onto the teeth with a small brush to provide an extra layer of protection. This varnish will harden when it comes in contact with the saliva so that you can eat and drink immediately after.
