dentist teeth cleaningProfessional teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist has become increasingly popular in recent years. Many people have this process done regularly to help improve and protect their oral health and to prevent dental problems from occurring or deteriorating.

What Is Teeth Cleaning?

This is a dental hygiene treatment performed by a dental hygienist or oral health therapist. It involves removing plaque and tartar using scaling and planing processes to clean your tooth surfaces and pockets.

Ultrasonic dental cleaning uses a special tool called an ultrasonic scaler to remove tartar and calculus from your teeth where there is a large build-up, or if you have periodontal disease.

The in-depth teeth cleaning process and the tools used do not in any way damage your teeth or enamel. They safely remove the plaque and bacteria present, leaving your teeth and gums healthier and stronger.

Hygiene appointments usually last 30-45 minutes depending on your specific needs. Your dental hygienist will advise how often you should have a teeth cleaning appointment to maintain good oral health.
