Professional Teeth Cleaning at Keilor East Dental Smiles

They involve the removal of dental plaque—a soft, sticky, bacteria-laden film—and tartar (also known as calculus) from your teeth. These procedures are necessary to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and more severe forms of gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

How We Clean Your Teeth

At Keilor East Dental Smiles, we use gentle yet effective techniques to ensure that your teeth are thoroughly cleaned without causing any harm.

Step-by-Step Cleaning Process

  • Ultrasonic Cleaning: Our first step uses an ultrasonic device that vibrates to loosen larger tartar deposits. This device simultaneously sprays a cooling mist to wash away debris and maintain a comfortable temperature during the procedure.
  • Manual Scaling: After the larger pieces are removed, our dentist uses hand tools called scalers and curettes. These instruments are designed to fit the curves of your teeth, allowing for precise removal of smaller deposits and smoothing of the tooth surfaces.
  • Polishing: Once your teeth are clean, we polish them using a slow-speed handpiece equipped with a soft rubber cup. This step uses prophylaxis paste—a special gritty material—that leaves your teeth shiny and smooth.
  • Fluoride Application: Finally, the dentist may apply fluoride to strengthen your tooth enamel and help protect against cavities.

Benefits of a Professional Cleaning

Cleaning and polishing the teeth leave their surfaces smooth and clean, making it difficult for bacteria to adhere and form plaque. Regular cleanings not only keep your teeth and gums healthy but also give you a brighter, fresher smile.
