What Happens During a Routine Dental Cleaning?

Posted .

We are so pleased that you have chosen us as your dental professionals! Our dentists and team recommend that you come in for a routine dental cleaning and exam at least twice a year. These preventive dental appointments can help you keep your smile healthy and bright.

Dental Cleaning
At the beginning of your dental appointment at AZ Dental, our hygienist will gently clean each of your teeth individually with a small, metal tool. The plaque and tartar will be scraped from all surfaces of the teeth. Tartar is hardened plaque that can only be removed by a dental professional. Our dental hygienist will also floss and polish your teeth.

Dental Exam
Next our dentists in San Jose, California, will join the appointment’s festivities. Your teeth and gums will be examined thoroughly by them. Our dentists may recommend taking dental X-rays as well. If any signs of decay, gum disease or other issues are detected, our dentists will suggest and explain a treatment plan. We would like for you to be fully educated about your dental health so that you can make educated decisions about your treatment.
