A dental cleaning performed by Dr. Anderson or a dental hygienist at Anderson Dental is typically completed under an hour. This procedure is so essential in keeping your teeth and gums clean and free of plaque and tartar build-up.
People may neglect to go to the dentist because of dental anxiety or one bad experience in their past, which can affect their oral health in the long run. Even the most diligent brushers and flossers can still miss plaque that clings to your tooth. Over time, only a professional dental cleaning will remove tooth tartar that has not been removed in time.
Fully understanding what to expect during a routine visit at our Champaign dentist office can help patients have a less stressful experience.
Routine Dental Cleaning Procedure
- Your dental hygienist will examine your teeth and gum to look for any dental health problems, including plaque build-up, infection, gum disease, cavities, or spots on the teeth
- We use a small hooked dental tool known as a scaler to remove plaque from the surface of your teeth
- After we remove any plaque, we polish the teeth and remove stain build-up
