How it's done
Typically, a dental cleaning is performed by a dental hygienist, and then afterward,the dentist will stop in to take a quick look. The procedure lasts between 30 mintes to an hour. Most patients describe it as a painless prcedure and are extremely happy with the results.
There are two important steps to a dental cleaning. The first step is scaling the teeth, whereby the hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces. This can be performed by hand or with electric scalers depending on the hygienists preference.Typically, the hygienist will also dig into the pockets of the gums to remove any plaque buildup there.
The second step is polishing to remove any final plaque and buff the teeth. Polishers generally have several different sized heads to clean hard to reach places.
