Who is Teeth Cleaning For?
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends everyone receive at least two annual dental teeth cleanings from their dental caretaker. It is well documented that professional cleaning can prevent cavities by reducing plaque buildup (the leading cause of tooth decay). A cleaning will also address tartar and stains on your enamel that can make your smile look dull and yellow. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, and boost your overall health, schedule a cleaning for yourself and every member of your family at Alcan Family Dental.
What To Expect
A professional teeth cleaning at Alcan Family Dental begins with you comfortably settling into one of our treatment chairs. After sliding on a pair of our stylish glasses to protect your eyes, a highly qualified member of the Alcan Family Dental team will begin your cleaning by removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. After the initial removal, your treatment will utilize advanced techniques and state-of-the-art dental technology to remove deep tartar without harming the tooth or causing discomfort. To achieve this, we use a device powered by ultrasonic high-speed vibration supported by a lubricating mist to gently work away debris. Next, we use a handheld instrument such as a curette or scaler to remove smaller pieces of plaque. We clean each tooth individually for optimal cleanliness and maximum shine. Once all of your teeth have been cleaned, the enamel on each tooth will be polished to remove stains and restore strengthen. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment can be performed after the cleaning is completed.
During your entire dental cleaning, we will make sure you feel relaxed and comfortable. Our modern office was designed with you in mind, creating an upscale, modern ambience that allows you to feel safe and comfortable.
Teeth Cleaning After Care
As previously mentioned, a professional cleaning should be performed at least twice a year. During your cleaning, our expert team can help develop a thorough at-home oral care regimen by demonstrating techniques or recommending specific products to help you with your specific concerns. We also provide precise directions on how to use your whitening system (sold separately), so your smile can be gorgeous and healthy all year long. A follow-up appointment may be scheduled if we determine treatment is recommended for additional dental concerns. Otherwise, Alcan Family Dental requests that you faithfully continue maintaining your twice-yearly dental cleanings and bi-annual dental exams.
