In-Depth Teeth Cleaning
Regular brushing and flossing at home is important, but is only part of a successful dental routine. You need a professional dental teeth cleaning at least twice a year to remove tartar and plaque buildup. Combining regular brushing and flossing with at least bi-annual dental exams and teeth cleaning will help protect you from tooth decay, tooth loss and gum disease.
Dr. Kidess and her team specialize in providing in-depth teeth cleaning as part of their family dentistry services in Paradise Valley-Scottsdale. Professional dental cleanings are performed by Dr. Kidess or under her guidance by a knowledgeable dental hygienist.
What To Expect
During your dental exam and teeth cleaning appointment, you can expect the following:
Removal of Tartar: Tartar is made up of hardened plaque that’s accumulated on the surface of the tooth. Tartar can even be found below the gum line, which can lead to the development of gum disease. Brushing alone won’t remove tartar; it takes specialized dental tools and a knowledgeable dentist and hygienist to remove tartar build-up from the surface of teeth.
Removal of Plaque: Plaque is comprised of saliva and bacteria from food that hasn’t been removed. Plaque can be removed via vigilant oral hygiene, in addition to regular visits to the dentist. If plaque is not removed, the build-up can development into tartar, inflame gums, and lead to gum disease.
Teeth polishing: No teeth cleaning session is complete without teeth polishing, where Dr. Kidess and her team gently removes surface stains to reveal a brighter, cleaner smile.
