Why Are Regular Dental Cleanings Important?

Even if you follow a thorough brushing and flossing routine at home, you can still benefit from biannual dental cleanings at Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC. Using state-of-the-art equipment, a biannual dental cleaning removes tartar and plaque that has built up while polishing the enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. During your cleaning, Dr. Baum and our team will provide you with tips on ways to better clean your teeth, including which areas may need extra attention. Dental cleanings also give Dr. Todd K. Baum the opportunity to check for any areas of concern in the mouth that may need care. Regular professional cleanings are a crucial part of maintaining your oral health, so make an appointment for yourself and your family at our Grand Ledge, MI location.

What Can I Expect for My Dental Cleaning?

To start your cleaning, your hygienist will first use an advanced scaling tool to gently remove built-up tartar and plaque, which can develop even with consistent brushing and flossing. At our Grand Ledge, MI office, we use sophisticated ultrasonic devices to loosen large chunks of plaque and tartar without harming the teeth. Next, handheld tools like a scaler or curette will be used to remove the remaining pieces. Each tooth needs to be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar. Once your teeth have been cleaned, the enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains. If needed or requested, a professional fluoride treatment may be done after the cleaning.
