San Antonio Teeth Cleaning Professionals
Our teeth cleaning dental hygienists may use ultrasonic instruments during your teeth cleaning; these instruments specialize in removing larger pieces of tartar. The ultrasonic instruments use vibrations and mists of water to loosen up and remove debris that has accumulated since your last teeth cleaning. Our teeth cleaning dental hygienists also use finer hand instruments to remove smaller deposits and to smooth up tooth surfaces during your teeth cleaning. To make teeth sparkle, they brush them with a soft rubber cup and polishing paste that comes in a variety of flavors such as Pina Colada.
The typical appointment for a teeth cleaning is scheduled every six months; however, depending on each patient’s needs, three to four month teeth cleaning appointments can be scheduled. During this time, we also do an oral cancer exam, check for cavities and evaluate the health of your gums. Getting these exams done on a regular basis will not only keep your teeth clean, but also prevent you from needing more extensive treatments. Finding a cavity in its earlier stages will only require a filling, while a bigger one that’s been undetected or remained undiagnosed for an extensive amount of time may need a root canal and a crown. Scheduling a regular teeth cleaning can also prevent gum disease or the progression of gum disease such a periodontitis. Periodontitis is a serious gum infection and it’s the leading cause of tooth loss in people over 35 years old, so we ensure that our patients are properly diagnosed and treated.
