Teeth Cleaning

Just like the rest of your body, your teeth must be cleaned regularly to stay healthy. Teeth cleaning, known to dentists as prophylaxis, is perhaps the most common reason people visit the dentist. It’s an easy procedure that will ensure your smile stays healthy.

Even if you have sensitive teeth, Dr. Mysse and his staff will ensure your cleaning is as pain-free as possible. Routine cleanings are recommended for all patients to take care of dental issues regular brushing and flossing don’t address, such as tartar buildup.

Tooth Scaling

The first stage of cleaning is tooth scaling. During this process, the hygienist removes plaque and tartar using periodontal scalers and curettes. Brushing alone won’t remove this buildup. The hygienists at Dr. Mysee’s office look for signs of discomfort during this process, but if you experience any pain during the cleaning, let them know. Soreness in teeth or gums during cleaning may be a sign of other problems, and it’s best to catch those early.

Tooth Polishing

Tooth polishing is performed using a prophy cup – a small motorized tool with a rubber cup – and an abrasive compound. This process smooths the surface of your teeth and helps prevent future plaque buildup.

Debridement

Debridement is similar to tooth scaling but uses ultrasonic instruments instead of hand tools to remove plaque and tartar. The ultrasonic instruments fracture the buildup, making removal quick and easy.
