Even if you have a perfect oral hygiene routine at home, it can still be beneficial for you to schedule a dental cleaning at Ah! Dentistry twice each year. Using advanced equipment, a dental cleaning treats plaque and tartar, and then polishes your teeth for a healthier, brighter smile. After your treatment, you can ask for tips on ways to better clean your teeth at home and discover certain areas that may need extra care. A dental cleaning will give our experienced dentists a chance to check for any areas of concern in your mouth that may need care. Having a dental cleaning is a crucial step in keeping up with your dental health so schedule an appointment at one of our DFW area locations.
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning two times per year. Children should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, we can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A cleaning may help you avoid cavities because built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A dental cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you want to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your overall health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a dental cleaning at Ah! Dentistry.
What To Expect
Your cleaning will begin by addressing the tartar and plaque buildup from your enamel, which is challenging to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Professional equipment is used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To begin, a device with ultrasonic technology breaks up large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld tools, such as a scaler or curette, will remove any remaining buildup. Every tooth will be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar. After your teeth have been scaled, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment will be completed following your cleaning.
Your Ah! Dentistry dentist may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Throughout your appointment, we will help you design a routine for good oral health at home by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your concerns. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Ah! Dentistry.
A dental cleaning is a preventive treatment so it is typically covered by insurance. A member of our office can talk to your insurance to understand your coverage before we charge for any remaining amount. If you don't have insurance, you can talk to us about payments we take and medical financing.
