Having dental cleanings performed twice yearly is one of the most important things you can have done for your oral health. These cleanings, performed by the staff of your Dentist in Sutton MA, helps to remove mineralized plaque that may have developed in those "hard to reach" areas. Even if you maintain a great at-home oral health regimen, these cleanings are still needed every 6 months to ensure proper care.
How it's done:
Your cleaning should last between 30 minutes and an hour. Most patients find that these procedures do not cause any discomfort or pain.
One of our highly skilled hygienists will first scale the teeth, using an electronic or hand tool, to remove plaque from the teeth. The gum line will also be targeted, as that is a location notorious for bacterial growth and disease.
Following this, your hygienist will polish the teeth to remove any final plaque and buff the teeth. Polishers generally have several different sized heads to clean hard to reach places.
The Best Dentist Webster MA, Dr. Valente, will follow up your cleaning with a dental exam.
