Our Teeth Cleaning Process
When you schedule a teeth cleaning at Lovett Dental Katy, here is what you can expect from our board-certified dentists:
Before we start to clean your teeth, we perform a full physical exam of your mouth to check for any signs of dental health issues. If we detect any problems, we may have to address them before cleaning your teeth.
Remove the Tartar and Plaque
When cleaning your teeth, we remove all the plaque and tartar from your teeth. Our dentists use a scaler, which safely removes all plaque you may have missed while brushing your teeth.
Apply Gritty Toothpaste
Once we remove the tartar and plaque from your teeth, we apply a gritty toothpaste. We brush your teeth using a high-grade toothbrush that polishes your teeth without damaging the enamel.
Our dentist takes a pro-grade floss and works it through your teeth to remove anything that was missed during the cleaning and polishing process. Floss can get into tiny areas that other tools may miss.
Rinse and Fluoride
Once we finish cleaning the tooth area, we then give you a rinse and a fluoride treatment. The fluoride kills bacteria and keeps the tartar from building up in your mouth.
The Benefits of Teeth Cleaning
Teeth cleanings offer several health benefits, such as:
- A professional cleaning can prevent cavities from developing
- We prevent tooth loss by keeping your teeth strong and healthy
- You will notice a considerable improvement in your smile
- Good oral hygiene promotes fresh breath
- Fewer health issues in your mouth lead to fewer health issues in your body
- You save money in restorative or cosmetic procedures
It is vital to schedule a teeth cleaning at least twice a year. Your dentist can help you maintain the look and function of your teeth. Teeth cleanings eliminate the possibility of problems such as gingivitis or tooth decay.
Do You Need a Deep Cleaning?
Deep cleaning involves scaling and planing your teeth. Root planing removes plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth.
We may decide to perform a deep cleaning if there are signs of any gum disease or extensive decay. This may require teeth cleanings multiple times if you have more severe problems. However, preventative care through deep cleaning costs less than restorative care.
