Dental Exams & Cleanings

Maintaining regular dental cleanings is one of the most vital parts of your dental care plan. At Cholla Family Dentistry, our dental hygienists take special care to get to know you and your particular hygiene needs during your dental exams. They take pride in serving your dental health with thorough yet gentle cleanings while educating you about effective habits and techniques that you can use between visits.

The Necessity of Regular Dental Cleanings

The American Dental Association recommends dental cleanings every six months. These cleanings are instrumental in preventing tooth decay and gum disease, more so than even the best personal dental care practices.

Due to irregularities in patients’ teeth such as crookedness, crowding, gaps, and uneven surfaces, it can be difficult for patients to clean every surface as thoroughly as needed. Tartar build-up commonly advances to the point where professional tools are necessary to remove it before disease sets in.

In cases when disease has occurred or cleanings have been missed, Dr. Chen may recommend more frequent cleanings than every six months. He will work with you to establish the best cleaning schedule for you and your needs.

How do cleanings work at Cholla Family Dentistry?

  • Typically, cleanings begin with an ultrasonic instrument designed to remove tartar, along with water rinsing to flush out residue and keep the mouth at a proper temperature.
  • Our hygienists will use a fine, handheld instrument to remove any tartar left from Step 1 on teeth surfaces and below the gumline.
  • Teeth will be polished with a device containing a small rubber head, as well as gritty polishing paste. Teeth will emerge smoother, and the mouth will feel refreshed.
  • Our hygienists will discuss improvements for home care routines and techniques.
