The Surprise Dental and Denture team is dedicated to creating healthy smiles. Those healthy smiles start with great preventive care, such as preventive dental cleaning.
Preventive dental cleanings and periodic oral exams are important in the prevention of gum disease, tooth decay and other oral disorders. In addition to brushing and flossing thoroughly every day, it is recommended to have a professional dental cleaning done every few months. Preventive cleanings removes stains and tartar, preventing gum disease and helps in maintaining an optimum oral health.
Preventive dental cleanings are routinely performed by one of our three registered dental hygienists. Any external deposits on the teeth like the tartar or stains are removed with the help of manual scalars, ultrasonic machines or even dental lasers. Hand scalars remove stain and deposits by manually methods. Ultrasonic machines use sound waves to loosen the hard deposits without causing any harm to the tooth. Dental lasers use specialized wavelengths of light to sterilize the plaque bacteria off of the tooth with no pain. The teeth are polished following a thorough cleaning to make it difficult for plaque to adhere.
At Surprise Dental & Denture we offer various ways to have your teeth cleaned so you and your dental hygienist can choose together the best method for your individual wants and needs.
