Dental Cleaning

A dental cleaning is a professional tooth cleaning you receive from a dental hygienist.

Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque consists of masses of bacteria that grow between and on teeth, at and below the gum line. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning should include scaling, root planing and polishing.

Scaling and root planing is the process of removing plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces with a variety of methods, depending on the amount of plaque and tartar. Dental hygienists perform scaling by hand and/or with electric scalers. Polishing completes the cleaning, making the surface of the teeth smooth and minimizing future plaque build-up.

Sealants

Sealants on newly erupted first and second permanent molars are a common preventive treatment in dentistry.

A sealant is a thin, plastic-like material applied to the chewing surfaces of a child's permanent first and second molars. The sealant fills the grooves and depressions of the tooth preventing cavity-causing buildup. Sealants can help prevent cavities from forming in the deep grooves of a tooth.
