Dental Cleanings: What to Expect

Posted .

To help you prepare for your next dental cleaning appointment, our McKinnon Dental team is happy to give you the details about what you can expect while you sit in the dental chair. When you come into our office, you can look forward to:

1. A warm welcome: To help you feel at home at our office, our friendly dental team will welcome you as you walk through the door. Then, we will guide you through our warm, comfortable office to your dental chair. As you sit, we will ask you a variety of different questions and review your medical history. This is a good chance for you to express your questions and concerns with us.

2. A dental cleaning: First, we will deeply clean your teeth with a special tool that removes the plaque and tartar from the surface of your smile. This is a beneficial technique that lowers your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Next, we will check and measure your gum pockets for any signs of trouble. Third, we will floss between each crevice of your smile and will remove any plaque and food particles that reside there. Finally, we will polish your chompers with a polishing treatment.
