What is a dental cleaning?

Even if you have a perfect oral hygiene routine at home, it can still be beneficial for you to have a professional cleaning at our dental practice twice each year. Using advanced equipment, a professional cleaning eliminates plaque and tartar, and then polishes your enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. After your appointment, you can ask for tips on better home oral care and discover certain areas that may need more care. A professional cleaning will also give cosmetic dentist Dr. Troy Gombert a chance to look for any issues in your mouth that may need care. Having a professional cleaning is a vital step in keeping up your dental health, so make appointments for your family at our Chandler, AZ location.

Am I a candidate for a DENTAL CLEANING?

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning two times each year. Infants should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, Dr. Gombert can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning may help you avoid cavities because built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you would like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your oral health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a professional cleaning for your whole family with Dr. Gombert.

How is a DENTAL CLEANING performed?

Your dental cleaning will start by addressing the tartar and plaque deposits on your enamel, which is hard to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Advanced tools are used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To start, a device with ultrasonic technology loosens large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, a fine handheld instrument such as a scaler or curette will remove the remaining pieces. Every tooth will be scaled to get all the buildup. After your teeth are clean, your enamel will be carefully polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment may be done following your cleaning.

What to expect after a DENTAL CLEANING?

Dr. Gombert may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns such as periodontal disease. Throughout your treatment, Dr. Gombert or an assistant on his team will help you come up with a home routine for good oral health by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your needs. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health, so be sure to attend your dental appointments at our facility.

Does insurance cover dental cleanings?

A professional cleaning is a preventive treatment, so it's typically covered by insurance. A member of our support staff can talk to your dental insurance to understand your coverage before we bill for any remaining amount. If you don't have insurance, you can talk to our client relations team about payments we take and medical financing.

However, Dr. Gombert and his team will do everything possible to make sure you are comfortable during the cleaning process.

We will always work to accommodate your busy schedule and ensure you receive a thorough cleaning.

Can I eat after a dental cleaning?

Yes, you can eat after a dental cleaning. However, we recommend waiting about 30 minutes before consuming anything.
