Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Safeguard Your Smile
Regular dental cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, are performed to effectively remove plaque and tartar deposits from the teeth. These cleanings are a must even if you brush and floss daily. This is because your brush and floss cannot remove debris from the hidden and hard to reach areas of the mouth, and these deposits could cause a host of oral problems over time. After a thorough cleaning at Celebration Family Dental of Carrollton, your teeth will feel squeaky clean and will be free from harmful deposits.
Teeth cleaning is performed in our office by a trained dental hygienist using a special set of dental tools. We begin the procedure by thoroughly examining your mouth to check the condition of your teeth and ensure the health of your oral tissues. Next, your teeth will be cleaned using dental instruments to thoroughly remove hard deposits from the mouth. A constant stream of water is used to remove plaque and wash away debris. Finally, the teeth are polished using a rotary brush that has very soft bristles. Polishing makes the tooth surface bright and shiny.
A professional dental cleaning at our practice not only cleans your teeth, but also helps us to take a closer look at your oral health in general and evaluate your mouth for any other problems that may exist. To schedule your next checkup and cleaning with us, contact us today.
