Routine dental cleanings are necessary in order to prevent potential dental and medical issues, such as gum disease, infection, and more. Visiting Avenues Family Dentistry twice a year will improve your oral health and reinforce your home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing.
Comprehensive Dental Cleanings
When you come in for a dental cleaning at Avenues Family Dentistry, our friendly dental team will assist you in helping you relax and enjoy your cleaning. Here’s what you can expect with our comprehensive dental cleanings.
- X-rays & Examinations
Our dental team will begin with an initial comprehensive exam and x-ray. This will help us view any impacted or erupted teeth. This initial exam will allow our team to tailor your dental cleaning to your specific oral health needs.
- Plaque Removal
Our dental hygienist will use a scaler to remove any plaque and tartar between your teeth and the gum line. Keep in mind that tartar can only be removed at a dental office with the right training and tools.
- Toothpaste Cleaning and Flossing
Once the plaque and tartar are removed, our dental hygienist will use a powerful toothbrush to further clean your teeth. Then, we’ll floss your teeth to prevent bacteria build up and gum disease.
- Rinsing and Fluoride Treatments
After brushing and flossing, we’ll remove any leftover toothpaste with a quick rinse. If necessary, we may provide a fluoride treatment to strengthen the enamel of the teeth.
