Twice yearly dental cleanings are one of the most important and frequently performed services by your Las Vegas dentist. These professional cleanings, performed by one of our skilled hygienists, help remove mineralized plaque that may have developed in those "hard to reach" areas. Even with a great at-home oral health regimen, these cleanings are still needed every 6 months to ensure proper care.
How it's done:
Your cleaning should last between 30 minutes and an hour. Most patients find that these procedures do not cause any discomfort or pain.
One of our highly skilled hygienists will first scale the teeth, using an electronic or hand tool, to remove plaque from the teeth. The gum line will also be targeted, as that is a location notorious for bacterial growth and disease.
Following this, your hygienist will polish the teeth to remove any final plaque and buff the teeth. Polishers generally have several different sized heads to clean hard to reach places.
If it has been over 6 months since your last cleaning, contact your Las Vegas dentist today at (702) 331-4700 or Click Here to request an appointment.
