About Dental Cleanings
Even if you have a perfect oral hygiene routine at home, it can still be beneficial for you to schedule a dental cleaning at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates twice each year. Using state-of-the-art equipment, a biannual professional dental cleaning eliminates built-up plaque and tartar and then polishes your teeth for a brighter, healthier smile. After your treatment, you can ask for tips on caring for your teeth at home and discover certain areas that need extra attention. A professional cleaning will give our team a chance to identify any problem areas in your mouth that may require care. Having a professional dental cleaning is a crucial step in maintaining your oral health so schedule an appointment at our Ashburn, VA office.
What to Expect from Dental Cleanings
Your cleaning will begin by addressing the tartar and plaque that have built up on your enamel, which is difficult to remove at home, no matter how often you brush and floss. Special instruments are used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. First, an ultrasonic device loosens bigger chunks of plaque and tartar with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, handheld tools, such as a curette or scaler, will remove any remaining buildup. Each tooth needs to be treated individually to get all the tartar and plaque. After the teeth have been cleaned, the enamel will be polished to remove stains. If needed or requested, a professional fluoride treatment can be performed following the cleaning.
