Professional teeth cleanings are a necessary dental procedure for improving your oral health, energizing, and brightening your smile while preventing various oral conditions. Even with the most efficient oral hygiene routine, removing all debris and plaque from every part of your mouth is impossible. As a result, some plaque will harden into tartar and form harmful bacteria. At Park Creek Dental Care, we provide efficient dental cleanings to maintain your oral functions and your smile’s appearance.
Benefits of Dental Cleanings

- They help prevent complicated dental problems and ensure a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime
The Dental Cleaning Process
- Oral Exams
Before starting the cleaning process, our dentist will perform a comprehensive visual exam of your mouth. We will inspect your oral structures for signs of tooth decay, inflammation, or other possible dental concerns. If any issues are diagnosed, we will recommend the required care.
- Plaque and Tartar Removal
Next, we will perform a scaling procedure using a dental scaler to remove the plaque and tartar deposits from your teeth and beneath your gum line.
- Deep Cleaning and Polishing
Once your mouth is tartar-free, we will brush and polish your teeth using a high-powered electric brush. This deep cleaning process will effectively eliminate any remaining tartar that the dental scaler might have missed.
- Professional Flossing & Rinsing
Flossing conducted by our dentist can reach the deep corners and crevices of your teeth and find any spots where you might feel pain or gum bleeding. Finally, we will spray a jet of water to rinse your mouth of any remaining debris and residue.
- Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride application is the next step in the teeth cleaning process. This treatment is a preventive measure that will serve as a protectant to prevent cavities until your next cleaning process. In this step, we will apply a fluoride varnish which hardens when it comes in contact with saliva. After the procedure, you can eat and drink immediately.
- Final Checkup
After completing the above steps, our dentist will perform one last checkup. If any oral problems are identified, we will recommend the necessary treatments. We will educate you on home care tips to help you maintain proper dental health.
