At Arizona Smile Designers, your dental health is our number one concern. That’s why we always encourage our patients to stop by and see their expert dentists in the Sedona area in order to get a semiannual dental exam. While these dental check-ups are important for making sure that there aren’t any underlying problems that you may have with your teeth and gums, they’re just as important for the teeth cleanings that we provide.
As your Cottonwood and Sedona, AZ dentists, we’re very familiar with the fact that many patients actually don’t understand the importance of regular teeth cleanings. There’s a common belief that as long as a person keeps up with daily brushing, he or she won’t need a professional teeth cleaning. This cannot be further from the truth! Receiving a professional cleaning from a dental hygienist will remove mineralized plaque that can develop even for those patients who have committed oral hygiene routines. This plaque can especially be tricky to remove when it develops in the more difficult-to-reach areas, such as underneath the gum line. That’s where we come in; with our professional teeth cleanings, we’re able to remove this plaque and keep your teeth in as optimal of shape as possible. Best of all, these teeth cleanings are completely painless and shouldn’t cause you any discomfort at all!
Getting your teeth cleaned is a process that will typically take somewhere between 30 minutes to an hour. It will follow these steps:
