What Happens During a Professional Teeth Cleaning?

If you’re like most people, you care about your overall dental health. Most people schedule regular professional teeth cleanings with their hygienist at least every six months to help ensure that their teeth are in good standing. Please continue reading and speak with our New Jersey dental team to learn more about what will happen at your professional teeth cleaning and how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What happens at a professional teeth cleaning?

When you come into our office, one of our friendly dental hygienists will conduct several methods of cleaning your teeth to help ensure that your smile is as bright and healthy as can be. To start, we will begin by removing plaque from your teeth. Plaque and tartar cause cavities, bad breath, and other serious dental issues, which is why it is our job to ensure that you leave our office with perfectly clean teeth. In many cases, we will also provide you with a fluoride treatment to help prevent cavities, preserve tooth enamel, and stop tooth decay in its tracks. These are just some of the ways in which we will help ensure you leave our office healthier than when you entered, and if you are ready to schedule your cleaning, give us a call today.

Is a professional teeth cleaning painful?

In most cases, no, a professional teeth cleaning session should not at all be painful. However, if you are someone with inflamed gums or you do not take proper care of your teeth on a regular basis, there may be some minor pain, as your hygienist will be cleaning and touching areas of your mouth that you do not normally reach on your own. That being said, the minor amount of pain felt during your cleaning will go a long way in restoring your dental health, and as long as you get into a regular dental routine after your appointment, your next appointment should be entirely painless.
