Routine Dental Cleanings by Our Westmont Family Dentist

By maintaining your routine dental visits every six months, you're able to keep a healthy and long-lasting smile. These dental cleanings by our Westmont family dentist and her professional hygienists are crucial for eliminating plaque buildup. While brushing and flossing regularly are efficient for at-home care, plaque is stubborn and will stick around, especially in inaccessible areas.


Routine cleanings typically last anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour, which involves meticulous care aimed to preserve your dental health. First, Dr. Gadde will come in to thoroughly examine your teeth and make notes on the structure and health of your smile. These notes will be helpful in the future for any problems that may arise that can be addressed as soon as possible. This is also a great time to discuss any discomforts you've been experiencing, any services you were interested in, as well as any other concerns you wanted to address.


The dental cleaning itself is broken down into two important stages. First, one of our professional hygienists will complete scaling, where we'll eliminate any plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. This will use a combined technique of manual and electric scalers to ensure all the buildup has been thoroughly and efficiently removed.


The second step involves polishing in order to remove any residue plaque and enhance your smile's luster. The polishing tools are equipped with variously sized heads to effectively cleanse the hard-to-reach spaces to ensure thorough and comprehensive dental treatment.
