Regular dental cleaning is essential to have healthy teeth and gums. To completely eliminate plaque and bacteria that hide between your teeth and behind your gums, you should meet with one of the hygienists working at Monk Dental center. Professional dental cleaning allows us to thoroughly examine your teeth and remove any plaque and tartar that could have accumulated. Our dental hygienists are highly qualified to help you prevent tooth decay, gingivitis, infections, tooth sensitivity and gum recession.
The cleaning process usually includes the following steps:
To start, our hygienist will inspect your mouth and teeth to detect any problems that should be addressed urgently. We will also assess your pain tolerance and sensitivity level so that our team can proceed with care and without any harm.
Our hygienist will then use special dental instruments to carefully remove accumulations on your teeth. You will feel a slight pressure but there is usually no pain, as we have a careful approach to prevent any discomfort.
Giving your teeth a smooth, uniform appearance not only improves your smile but also helps prevent plaque build-up. This step involves using a toothbrush and a special toothpaste to polish your teeth and will not cause any pain.
After the hygienist polished your teeth, floss is used to clean carefully between your teeth where the toothbrush cannot reach. It also helps clean up the remaining toothpaste particles used in the previous step.
For some patients, especially the younger ones, a fluoride treatment is usually recommended. This mineral helps strengthen tooth enamel to resist erosion caused by acidity or bacteria. Fluoride treatments usually come in the form of a gel or foam applied with a tray and rinsed after treatment.
Our dental hygienists will be happy to suggest tips to improve your oral hygiene at home. They will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions or express any concerns you may have. Planning a cleaning with us is easy. Simply call our office and make an appointment at 514-768-3331.
