Our Approach to Teeth Cleaning Services
Our professionals at Absolute Dental are not only technically skilled but make sure our patients feel comfortable and relaxed with whatever dental procedure they may need. When it comes to teeth cleaning, we do our best to make the session quick and painless while also paying close attention to detail and each individual’s needs. Our patients can feel confident that they’re getting the best service with the personal touch that Absolute Dental strives to provide.
Haven’t Had a Teeth Cleaning in a While?
At Absolute Dental, we understand that visiting the dentist for routine cleanings can be intimidating for some individuals. Also, patients may incorrectly assume that dental cleanings are not necessary because they brush and floss every day, and sometimes go for years without having their teeth cleaned. No matter the reasons or the circumstance, our professional dental hygienists are specialists in these situations.
We will walk you through the cleaning procedure, from start to finish, while always being sensitive to patients who may feel anxious or exposed. We are committed to providing exceptional dental cleaning services to improve your oral health, and having compassion for our patients is a big part of that.

What to Expect During a Teeth Cleaning
A professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year is recommended to remove harmful buildup from the enamel of the teeth, as well as above and below the gumline, to prevent future dental problems and gum disease. Highly skilled dental hygienists are trained to use special instruments to aid in the removal of tartar buildup, plaque, and bacteria that can lead to tooth decay, cavities, gingivitis, infections, oral nerve sensitivity, and receding gums. This process includes the following steps:
Examination of your teeth – The first thing our hygienist will do is inspect your mouth and teeth for any potential problems before starting. You will also be asked about pain or sensitivity in the mouth so our team can proceed with care in those areas.
Removal of plaque build up – Next, the hygienist will use special dental instruments, called scalers, to chip and scrape the harmful buildup from the teeth. You may experience pressure on your teeth and gums, but there should be little pain. Our dental experts have a careful and sensitive approach to prevent discomfort during this step.
Teeth polishing – Making sure your teeth have a smooth texture not only improves your smile aesthetically but also makes it more difficult for plaque to accumulate. This step involves the use of a high-powered electronic brush and a gritty toothpaste to polish the teeth. Some patients can be intimidated by the sound of the electronic brush, but it only touches the exterior of the teeth and does not cause pain.
Thorough flossing – After the hygienist polishes the teeth, dental floss is used to carefully clean between the teeth where the toothbrush could not reach. This also helps to clean up any gritty toothpaste that was left behind from the previous step.
Fluoride treatment (recommended) – For some, particularly our younger patients, a fluoride treatment is recommended. This mineral is particularly helpful with strengthening the enamel of the teeth, helping to resist erosion due to acidity or bacteria. The fluoride solution is typically in the form of a gel or foam applied using a tray, then rinsed away after a set period of time.
Oral hygiene recommendations – Our dental hygienists may have some suggestions for you to improve your personal oral hygiene routine at home. This also gives you a chance to ask questions or voice any concerns if you have them.
Proper Oral Hygiene Between Teeth Cleanings
Between professional teeth cleanings, here are some tips on how to keep your teeth healthy and strong:
- Use mouthwash before brushing your teeth.
- Brush teeth, gums, and tongue with a recommended fluoride toothpaste at least twice daily.
- Floss every time you brush your teeth.
- Avoid acidic food and drinks that could promote bacterial growth in the mouth.
- Contact your dentist if you are experiencing pain or anything unusual.
