What Happens During a Routine Teeth Cleaning?
When you visit our clean and modern dental office in Downey, California, we will get you situated in a comfortable and private chair for your routine teeth cleaning. Our highly trained dental hygienist will be using several tools, including a simple metal tool to gently scrape the teeth, to clean the plaque and tartar. Sometimes, they may use an ultrasound device to remove extremely stubborn plaque buildup.
A suction tube is placed into the mouth to remove any saliva buildup and debris from the teeth cleaning. Don’t worry. It’s pretty comfortable!
After the cleaning, the dental hygienist will rinse your mouth, floss your teeth, and polish them using a toothpaste flavor of your choice.
