Best Candidates

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning twice a year. Infants should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, our seasoned team of dentists can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning may help you avoid cavities because it removes built-up plaque from the teeth, which is the main reason for tooth decay. A dental cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you would like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your oral health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a professional cleaning today.

What To Expect

Your dental cleaning will start by addressing the tartar and plaque deposits on your enamel, which is hard to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Advanced tools are used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To start, a device with ultrasonic technology loosens large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, a fine handheld instrument, such as a scaler or curette, will remove the remaining pieces. Every tooth will be scaled to remove all the buildup. After your teeth are clean, they will be carefully polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment may be done following your cleaning.

Follow-Up

We may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Throughout your treatment, our team will help you come up with a home routine for good oral health by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your needs. These are great for your teeth, wallet, and overall health so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Newton Centre Dental.

Insurance Coverage

A professional cleaning is a preventive treatment so it's typically covered by insurance. A member of our office can talk to your dental insurance to understand your coverage before we bill for any remaining amount. If you don't have insurance, you can talk to our financial coordinator about payments we accept and low-interest medical financing.
