Inspection
The Mission Hill team will check the condition of your mouth by starting with a thorough inspection of your entire mouth, this might include X-rays. Your gums will be checked for any signs of gingivitis by softly poking the gums to determine gum health. You will then be given a comprehensive flossing, with the goal to clean any difficult areas that are difficult to reach with a toothbrush.

Teeth Cleaning
Dr. Dimitrov will use an ultrasonic tool to clean your teeth. This device vibrates and rotates to loosen tartar, plaque, and bits of food. Water will be continuously sprayed to help with removal, and a suction tube will be placed in the mouth to help remove the spray. After this, Dr. will use a tool known as a “scaler” to help clean any remaining smaller pieces of tartar from your teeth. 

End Step for Tooth

Polishing and Fluoride Treatment

Questions We Often Hear From Patients

Is teeth cleaning covered by insurance?

Insurance typically covers up to 80% of most dental services up to your yearly maximum. However, every insurance plan is different, including different annual maximums and limitations on how many units of scaling you are allowed per year. Therefore, we recommend reviewing your current insurance coverage before booking an appointment.

Do I need to get x-rays done at every check-up?

You do not have to get x-rays at every check-up. Typically we will do routine x-rays once per year. If you have any concerns about x-rays, you can consult with us.

Does teeth cleaning help whiten teeth?

Yes, scaling and polishing can remove some stains on your teeth, giving the effect of whiter teeth.

Will a teeth cleaning hurt?

Getting a teeth cleaning should not hurt if your tooth and gum health is optimal. However, if you are worried about discomfort, you can take an Advil before your appointment.

How soon can I eat or drink after getting my teeth cleaned?

Without fluoride – you can eat or drink immediately.
If you received fluoride – you need to wait thirty minutes before you can eat or drink

How long does a professional teeth cleaning session take?

Regular teeth cleaning appointments at Mission Hill take between 30 to 60 minutes. Regular teeth cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health and preventing dental problems. If you have any questions, contact us to let us know.
