Why do we need regular professional dental cleaning?
Plaque and tartar build-ups contain many bacteria and they can lead to various dental problems such as cavities and gum disease. Even if we brush our teeth and floss everyday, it is almost impossible to do complete removal of plaque and tartar from your teeth. Using our specialized dental cleaning instruments, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned in a professional manner. This periodic cleaning help you to reduce and control the amount of bacteria in your mouth and make your home dental care mush easier.
How long is the cleaning appointment?
Most of the cleaning appointments take around 1 hour. This generally include cleaning your teeth with an ultrasonic scaler and hand instruments to remove plaque and tartar in between the teeth and along the gum line. After removing plaque and tartar, we will polish your teeth to remove any staining so that you can get your whitened smile back!
Is cleaning my teeth a painful procedure?
The advancement in dental instruments and technologies have allowed us to provide comfortable cleaning experience to our clients. Some discomfort may be experienced if the gum is inflamed or receded from the previous gum disease. For the patients who experience sensitivity or pain during cleaning, we offer special topical numbing to create comfortable appointment.
Is cleaning covered by my benefits?
Dental cleaning falls under basic dental procedures and almost all the dental insurances cover basic treatments. However, there may be a patient's portion or deductible associated. Our richmond dental office accept most of the dental insurances. Please give us a call so we can help you to find out more about your insurance.
