Do your regular dental checkups scare you? For sure, some people think it’s scary due to strange and loud noise, but dental cleaning Vancouver is actually a very simple and painless process. If you know the procedure of our dental cleaning Vancouver, you will feel less stressed and more comfortable during your next cleaning. So let’s take a look at exactly what will take place during your next cleaning at A&A Dental!
1 A Physical Check
As usual, the dental cleaning is done by a dental hygienist. Before they start the dental cleaning, they check your teeth and gums with a small mirror. If they find dental problems, the dental hygienist may confirm with the dentist if they can proceed, and if any other treatments are required.
2 Taking Away Plaque and Tartar
The dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar not only between your teeth but around your gums with a small mirror and a scaler. You can hear sculpting sound during this treatment, but it is usual. If you have a lot of plaque and tartar, it will take a little longer. Therefore, if you don’t care for this sound, you should brush and floss your teeth carefully very day. On top of that, brushing and flossing are your best friends to prevent tartar. As long as plaque changes into tartar, you can only have this removed at the clinic!
3 Brushing Teeth with a Gritty Toothpaste
After the dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar, they clean your teeth with a high-powered electric brush and a gritty toothpaste, which may sound scary. The toothpaste may have similar tastes or smells which you usually use at home, but the toothpaste is much more gritty in order to polish your teeth. It’s safe for your teeth to be brushed with this gritty toothpaste by professionals twice a year. However, you shouldn’t use the gritty toothpaste at home, because using it regularly may cause you to lose the enamel on your teeth.
4 Professional Flossing
Even though you floss your teeth every day, you miss some plaque between your teeth. However, our professional dental hygienist finds and flosses the plaque as well as other potential problem spots. We don’t miss any leftover plaque or toothpaste between your teeth!
You wash your mouth with a rinse including liquid fluoride in order to take away any debris from your mouth.
6 Fluoride Treatment
This treatment is the last step and helps prevent cavities for several months. The fluoride gel is put on your teeth for only one minute and you can eat and drink right after this treatment.
