Routine Exam and Teeth Cleaning: What to Expect
Like most dental offices, at the offices of Yefim Aranbayev, DDS, a trained dental hygienist performs oral exams and teeth cleaning. Most patients receive routine cleanings twice per year, although some patients may require more frequent cleanings.
Your appointment will begin with the exam. Your hygienist, who is trained to maximize your comfort, will carefully examine all your teeth, looking for potential problems, like cavities or gum disease. During your exam, depending on your oral health and the date of your last x-ray, your hygienist may ask your permission to take several intraoral x-rays.
If the hygienist discovers any problems that may interfere with the routine cleaning, they may ask the dentist for guidance and assistance.
After your exam, your hygienist will perform routine teeth cleaning, using specialized tools to clean the teeth with particular attention to the gums. By removing excessive plaque and tartar, and often in hard-to-reach places, your dental teeth cleaning will help to prevent future problems, including gum disease.
Finally, after your routine teeth cleaning, your dental hygienist will offer guidance and advice for optimizing your oral care at home, including the proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Deep Teeth Cleaning: What to Expect
Deep dental teeth cleanings (also known as dental scaling and root planning) focus on the areas below the gum line, often down to the roots of your teeth, where bacteria can hide. Oral bacteria often thrive in the tartar that accumulates on your teeth and migrates into the gums and down to the roots. Bacterial infections around the roots can lead to gum disease and tooth loss.
By smoothing and cleaning the surface below the gums, a deep cleaning can remarkably improve your oral health, resolving problems like bad breath, bleeding gums, or pain while brushing and flossing.
Typically, a deep cleaning requires one or more hours of attentive work. Your trained hygienist will numb your gums with a local anesthetic and then, working carefully in quadrants, will use a dental scaler or ultrasonic device to clean your gums and roots thoroughly. Many patients require two visits to complete all four mouth quadrants.
