If you’ve never had a dental cleaning before, you’ll be happy to know it’s a simple, straightforward process. Here’s what you can expect when you work with Orange Premier Dental for tooth cleaning:
First, the dental hygienist or dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, and gums. This exam helps them assess your overall oral health and identify any problem areas that require special attention. The exam will be completed using a small mirror to check the teeth and gums for signs of inflammation or infection.
Next, the dentist or hygienist will use special tools to clean your mouth and get rid of plaque around the gum line. While you’ll hear plenty of scraping, the process is painless and safe for your mouth and teeth.
Following teeth cleaning, LBR (laser bacterial reduction therapy) is used to kill bacteria in hard to reach places, down to the microscopic level. Using a non-cutting laser, this treatment is effective in preventing inflammation and periodontal disease.
Finally, when the dentist or hygienist has cleaned all the plaque and tartar from your teeth, they’ll finish the job by polishing your teeth with a gritty toothpaste. The gritty consistency of the paste gently scrubs the teeth and polishes the surface, leaving them stain-free, gleaming, and healthy.
