Crowley Professional Teeth Cleanings
Removing Plaque & Maintaining Peak Oral Health
Even if you are as perfect as can be when it comes to your oral hygiene at home, there are certain things you can't do yourself with a toothbrush and floss. For example, even if you are responsible for keeping your teeth clean, you cannot easily remove the build-up of plaque from your teeth. You also cannot examine yourself for any type of dental problems or gum disease. At Stone Oak Family Dental, we offer thorough dental cleanings and examinations during which we can clean your teeth and determine if you have any developing issues.
Get to Know Our Teeth Cleaning Procedure
While every patient is different, our Crowley dentists have incorporated a proven dental cleaning procedure we use to ensure you get the most efficient clean. Typically your cleaning will be performed by a hygienist who has been trained to use the special tools for getting in every nook and cranny of your mouth.
The steps of your teeth cleaning will typically go as follows:
- An oral examination will be performed to evaluate your gums and teeth.
- Metal instruments and/or an ultrasonic scaler will be used to remove plaque.
- Calculus will be removed if necessary using special tools.
- Teeth will be polished with a special brush using a special gel.
Schedule Bi-Annual Dental Cleanings
Have you ever noticed just how clean and smooth your teeth look and feel after a professional cleaning? In addition to that wonderful feeling, professional tooth cleanings are essential. You need to have cleanings performed twice a year for the sake of your oral health. Over time, your teeth become covered in a layer of plaque which can turn to tartar or calculus if it is not removed. The more often you get your teeth cleaned, bacteria has less of a chance to grow and the healthier your teeth and mouth will be.
