Improve Your Oral Health and Keep Your Smile Safe with Personalized Care from Dr. Peter Rydell
A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist that should be performed every six months to prevent plaque buildup, which can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. Cleanings take one hour and include scaling, x-rays, & polishing.
Scaling removes plaque and tartar from each tooth’s surface. Scaling is typically done by hand, but new technology has led to more modern methods such as using electric scalers. This sophisticated tool allows dental cleanings to be performed more efficiently and in less time. To achieve best results, both electric and manual scaling methods are combined for dental cleanings.
