Professional Teeth Cleaning at Brook Trout Dental
As part of your regular oral health exam, our registered dental hygienist will perform a professional dental cleaning. This cleaning will include:
- Removal of tartar – Tartar forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
- Removal of plaque – Plaque is a sticky film that forms on your teeth from living bacteria and food debris. The bacteria produce toxins that inflame the gums and can cause cavities. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease and should be addressed with prophylaxis teeth cleaning before it progresses into a more advanced stage.
- Teeth polishing – Our hygienist will remove excess stains and plaque that are not otherwise removed during tooth cleaning (brushing and scaling).
After your teeth cleaning, our expert dentist will perform a thorough dental exam to ensure that you go home free of any underlying concerns. Your exam will address the following:
- Diagnostic x-rays for detecting decay, cysts, and bone loss
- Gum disease evaluation to check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease
- Oral cancer screening of your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer
- Examination of existing restorations, such as current fillings, crowns, implants, partials, and dentures
- All tooth surfaces checked for decay with special dental instruments
Don’t forget to continue your valuable at-home brushing and flossing regimen!
