Dental Cleaning

It pays to be proactive rather than reactive, which is no less the case with your dental health. Your number-one safeguard against tooth decay is prevention. Taking the necessary steps to keep your teeth in good condition is easier and less expensive than having a procedure to fix your dental issues further down the line. One of the best ways to keep your teeth protected from tooth decay is to go in for regular teeth cleaning. At our dental clinic in Montclair, we address your problems before they arise. Our teeth cleanings keep your teeth healthy and your smile happy. Take the measures you need to keep your teeth healthy today!

What Can I Expect From Teeth Cleaning

Dental cleaning is usually broken up into several steps, each of which is designed to improve your teeth’ state so they can be better protected in the future.

Assessing the Situation

We begin by examining the state of your teeth. During this phase, we are looking for signs of gum disease and other oral health concerns. If everything looks good, we can proceed.

Target Plaque and Tartar

We may find plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth. These are difficult to remove on your own, which is why teeth cleanings are so important. Using a scaler, we will remove any buildup clinging to your teeth.

Gritty Toothpaste

Once the buildup is gone, we can begin brushing your teeth. Naturally, the form of brushing we employ is more extensive than what you perform on your own. We use a specialized toothpaste that gently scrubs your teeth before removing any buildup that is left over. Generally, this tastes no different from regular toothpaste.

Professional Flossing

Once your teeth are sparkling clean, we finish up with expert-level flossing. This is more extensive than typical flossing and handles any lingering debris in the more inaccessible areas of your mouth.

Rinse it Out

As you can expect, this involves a thorough rinsing that flushes out the toothpaste and any other leftover debris.

Fluoride Application

The dental cleaning ends with the application of a special fluoride paste to your teeth. While this doesn’t necessarily "clean" your teeth, it will act as a preventative measure against future decay. You can choose from different flavors for this solution.

Other Steps

During your visit, there may be some other steps included before or after your cleaning.

X-rays may be taken during your visit as part of your dental health check-up. These will help your dentists get a look that a physical exam can’t give them. If cavities are spotted, we will recommend treatment options and may even be able to provide you with a filling the same day.

After Your Cleaning

We’ll ensure you walk out of our office with teeth that are protected against future decay. After the process is complete, you are free to go about your day; just make sure to avoid eating for at least half an hour and drop by after another six months for your next cleaning.
