HOW IT'S DONE

Teeth cleaning procedure

You can expect dental cleaning procedures to last between 30 minutes and an hour. Typically, our trained hygienist will do the cleaning, and a dentist may come in for an exam at the end. Our dental cleanings are generally painless, and do not cause any discomfort. Here’s what you can expect during your teeth cleaning appointment.  
Oral Exam | Dental Cleaning | Dentistry of Orlando

Oral exam

Our dental hygienist will visually inspect your gums and evaluate the health of your oral tissues. This is to alert your dentist of any areas which may potentially lead to tooth decay.
Scaling | Dental Cleaning | Dentistry of Orlando

Scaling

The hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from tooth surfaces using ultrasonic scalers or metal instruments. The hygienist will then start scaling into the pockets of the gums to remove plaque buildup.
Polising | Dental Cleaning | Dentistry of Orlando

Polishing

The last step is polishing to clean hard-to-reach places, remove any final plaque, and buff the teeth. We apply toothpaste-like gel to polish the teeth and make them smooth and shiny.

Generally, the ideal interval for professional dental cleaning is every six months. However, some patients who are prone to having dental issues may need to come for teeth cleaning every three months. While others who experience less or hardly any dental issues can visit their hygienist every nine months.

In between cleaning, you need to practice good oral care to maintain a healthy mouth. Here are some things you can do to maintain healthy teeth and gums: 

  • Brush teeth twice a day, and for at least two minutes each time. 
  • Floss at least once a day after brushing. 
  • Use fluoride toothpaste.
