How do cleanings work at Creative Smiles?
1. Typically, cleanings begin with an ultrasonic instrument designed to remove tartar, along with water rinsing to flush out residue and keep the mouth at a proper temperature.
2. Our hygienists will use a fine, handheld instrument to remove any tartar left from Step 1 on teeth surfaces and below the gumline.
3. Teeth will undergo a polishing with a device containing a small rubber head, as well as gritty polishing paste. Teeth will emerge smoother, and the mouth will feel refreshed.
4. Our hygienists will discuss improvements for each patient’s home care routines and techniques.
