What happens during a teeth cleaning?

Do you look in the mirror and notice stains, discolouration or potentially a buildup of plaque in your teeth? Life takes its toll on our teeth, even with consistent and diligent brushing, flossing and use of mouthwash. Many patients keep on top of their oral health with regular teeth cleanings once every six months.

Teeth Cleanings at Edward St Dental

Patients who visit us at Edward St Dental can expect quality service and a thorough clean that prepares their teeth for another six months of eating their favourite foods! A teeth cleaning process generally involves:

  • A visual exam of the teeth and gums 
  • Removal of plaque buildup around teeth in hard to reach areas 
  • A thorough, ‘gritty’ toothpaste cleaning (this involves an electric prophy cup polisher that provides surface cleaning for each tooth)
  • Flossing and a good rinse! 

Depending on when patients last had x-rays, a dentist may also check for other conditions and see what is happening in the rest of the mouth. Patients may also be due for fluoride treatments that protect their teeth for the coming months.
