What is the dental cleaning process?
After an exam and necessary X-rays are complete, our team will begin the tooth cleaning process. Our hygienist will use small, metal dental tools to remove plaque and tartar off the teeth during this process. Once the plaque is removed completely, our hygienist will floss your teeth and then polish the teeth with a gritty paste that can help remove surface stains and leave the teeth smooth. Our hygienist will rinse off the paste and then offer or apply a fluoride gel or foam.
