Do you have a dental cleaning coming up? If so, good for you! Dental cleanings are vital if you want a strong and successful oral health. They can prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental issues. There is no need to feel nervous about your appointment. In fact, our Wellwood Family Dentistry team is happy to help you prepare for your visit! When you come into our office, you can expect the following things:
1. A warm welcome: As you walk through our office doors, our friendly dental team will welcome you with a bright and warming smile. We will guide you through our office to one of our comfortable dental chairs. Then, we will ask you questions about your medical history and give you a chance to tell us about any concerns or questions you have.
2. A dental cleaning: The dental cleaning will be easy and painless. First, we will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile with a special tool. Then, we will measure your gum pockets and look for any dental issues. Third, we will floss between each tooth and eliminate the plaque and food particles that are stuck there. Lastly, we will polish your teeth with a polish flavor of your choice.
3. A fluoride treatment: Fluoride is a beneficial mineral that strengthens and nourishes your smile, which is why we include it in the cleaning process. The fluoride treatment will come in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish and it will likely be flavored to make it more enjoyable. We will place the fluoride into your mouth and will wait for the minerals to soak into your chompers. Once the proper time has passed, you will rinse your mouth with cool, refreshing water.
