Teeth Cleaning Appointments in Minneapolis
Even if you brush and floss regularly, professional teeth cleanings are vital. When you schedule a teeth cleaning at our dental office, you’ll leave with teeth that feel clean and look brighter.
Over time teeth build-up a layer of plaque and tartar, also called calculus. Both of these can be almost impossible to remove in hard to reach places without special tools. Left alone, these deposits grow and attract bacteria that eat the enamel of your teeth. Untreated, they cause tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and whole-body health problems.
By removing deposits regularly at our office with professional teeth cleaning, our team stops decay, and helps you maintain a healthy smile.
The Teeth Cleaning Process
When you schedule an appointment to get your teeth cleaned, one of our dental hygienists performs a comprehensive oral examination to look for any problems related to your teeth or oral tissues.
Then they use a specialized tool to remove built up plaque and tartar. We then polish your teeth with a low-speed rotary brush and a special toothpaste-like gel to buff off stains leaving you with a smooth, shiny, and completely clean smile.
Do Teeth Cleanings Hurt?
Most patients report no discomfort during routine teeth cleanings. If you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in awhile or if your gums are irritated from bacterial buildup, they may get mildly sore. If you experience discomfort, we can apply a topical numbing gel or other anesthetic to help you relax.
Professional teeth cleanings are a critical part of any oral hygiene regimen. With strong oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings, you can keep your teeth healthy and strong throughout your life.
