Quil Ceda Happy Dental wants to make sure all patients know that routine dental cleanings are important and typically the first, professional step to maintaining good oral hygiene. With the help of a professional cleaning, our hygienist can remove mineralized plaque that is difficult to reach while we brush and floss. To ensure top oral hygiene, we recommend that you go in for a cleaning once every six months.
How it's done
Generally, routine dental cleanings last between 30 minutes to an hour. One of our dentists in Marysville WA will come in for an exam to identify any potential cavities, address any issues that they see, and then one of our trained hygienists will perform the cleaning. Routine cleanings are typically painless and do not cause any discomfort, but if you feel uncomfortable or nervous, please let us know - we want to make your time with us as pleasant and easy as possible.
There are two important steps to a dental cleaning performed at our office. The first step is scaling your teeth, where our hygienist will remove the built-up plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. This is performed with the help of our advanced dental tools like electric scalers. We'll also clean the pockets of gums to remove any built-up bacteria to improve the structure of your gums.
The second step is to polish and remove any final plaque and buff the teeth so you have a shining, clean smile. You'll rinse and feel refreshed, more confident than ever with your smile.
