Professional dental cleanings are a vital part of proper oral hygiene. Dental cleanings are typically part of a preventative care exam performed biannually where your mouth, gums, and teeth are thoroughly examined for any complex problems. Even with proper at-home dental care, plaque and tartar can still develop and even lead to gum disease. If gum disease is present, periodontist Dr. Robert Cain has over 20 years of experience accurately diagnosing and treating patients with gum disease. Dr. Cain can properly check for any signs of gum disease during your comprehensive exam.
With specialized tools and materials, a highly trained dental hygienist will carefully perform your routine dental cleaning. During a professional dental cleaning, plaque and tartar are carefully removed from your teeth and gums. In our Knoxville, TN dentist office, professional dental cleanings will leave you with a clean, bright and healthy smile.
What Happens During a Dental Cleaning
Dental cleanings are a relatively quick and easy procedure. Once your gums, teeth, and mouth are examined, we will start a vigorous deep cleaning process by removing any buildup of tartar and plaque from your teeth.If you feel any discomfort, let your dental hygienist know so that we can make the appropriate adjustments for your comfort. Next, professional brushing and flossing tools will be used to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth that a regular toothbrush cannot reach. Lastly, a fluoride treatment will be administered to protect your teeth against cavities. Once the cleaning is complete, Dr. Cain will go over any recommended treatments.
