Four Seasons Family and Cosmetic Dentistry Teeth Cleaning
A professional teeth cleaning is a procedure in which Four Seasons Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Plymouth, MN uses a variety of tools to help deep clean your gums and the surface of your teeth.
First, we will use an ultrasonic cleaner and a water sprayer to loosen and remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. We will then scrape additional plaque and tartar off your teeth by using a metal tool called a hand scraper. We also may choose to sand and smooth the roots of your teeth in order to remove plaque and other bacteria. Finally, we will brush your teeth with a rotary toothbrush and a gritty type of toothpaste that will polish and clean your teeth. At completion of the cleaning we will floss your teeth and in some instances provide a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth.
