Dental cleanings are a necessary part of your oral hygiene. At our Bellevue office, our dental cleanings are performed by our skilled dental hygienist. The cleaning involves removing plaque, tartar and surface stains. We hope that with regular cleanings, we can help prevent cavities and periodontal disease. Using a variety of tools, our dental hygienist will help clean your gums and the surface of your teeth.
Depending on your needs, our hygienist may use tools including a hand scraper and an ultrasonic cleaner, which is used with a water sprayer to loosen and remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. This process may be mildly uncomfortable. We may even sand and smooth the roots of your teeth in order to remove plaque and other bacteria. Finally, we brush your teeth with a rotary brush and gritty paste to polish and clean your teeth, removing surface stains that have accumulated with normal use. After doing this, we may floss your teeth and offer a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth. You will feel the clean of a brighter, healthier mouth. Dental cleanings and examinations twice a year help you save money, time, and pain: we catch the problems before they become bigger problems.
