Dental Cleanings and Exams
Brushing and flossing every day is critical to your ongoing dental health, and it will help you keep that bright, shiny, healthy smile. However, even the best at-home hygiene routines leave some bacteria that can only be removed by a professional cleaning.
At Morgan Family Dental, we can provide the thorough, professional cleanings you need at each of your regular exams.
Your exam will include:
- Screening for gum disease
- Screening for oral cancer
- Checking bite patterns
These exams give us the chance to find and address any potential problems before they get out of control.
Your cleaning will include:
- Plaque and tartar removal
- Stain removal
- Teeth polishing
- Fluoride application
What to Expect from Your Cleaning
In order to get the best results from your cleaning, we focus on each tooth individually. Once we’re sure everything is tartar and plaque-free, we can start to polish your teeth. We use a slow-speed hand piece with a soft rubber cup and a prophylaxis paste to create a nice, shiny surface.
Cleanings are a routine procedure, and most patients never experience any discomfort throughout the process. Still, we do understand that some people can feel uncomfortable with any scraping sensations or mild vibrations, and at Morgan Family Dental, we do everything we can to make your experience comfortable and successful.
