Our associates at
The Szikman Dental Group, P.C. want to make sure that you are confident in your smile. One important
factor that can help you achieve a great and healthy smile is through
Optimal dental health requires a partnership between the patient and the
dentist. You practice good oral hygiene habits at home, and we finish
the job by providing regular professional cleaning that effectively removes
plaque — that sticky, bacteria-filled film that gathers along the
gum line and other hard-to-reach spots. We can also remove the damaging
particles by using professional tools that range from the traditional
scraping instruments to ultrasonic machines that work to loosen plaque
deposits with high-frequency sound waves.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
This is how a standard dental cleaning might go, but depending on your
unique needs, we may use additional procedures for better results!
First is the ultrasonic treatment. – We use an instrument that will rotate and vibrate on your teeth
to loosen tartar that has built up. Water will be sprayed while the cleaning
is underway to rinse away debris. This isn’t painful, and only a
small amount of pressure is applied.
Your hygienist will then scale your teeth – Once the major deposits are washed away, we will begin working
on any smaller areas that couldn’t be reached with the ultrasonic
treatment. Your dental hygienist will use a small curved instrument to
remove any additional tartar in the grooves and crevices of your teeth.
Now it’s time to polish – Now that all of the surface debris is gone, we will polish your
teeth to make sure the surfaces are smooth. This will help prevent food
and bacteria from getting caught in the teeth and also make your smile sparkle!
Last, if you choose, we will administer a fluoride treatment – This treatment will combat tooth decay and cavities. It is recommended
for all ages, regardless of the health of your teeth. We will apply a
fluoride gel and let it sit for approximately 5 minutes, then the gel
is washed away.
