Routine Dental Cleaning in Belleville NJ
Your Belleville dentist wants patients to know about the importance of routine dental cleanings and how they can help you maintain proper oral hygiene. It is important to allow our dental professionals to remove these harmful substances and promote careful brushing and flossing at home since you need both to have a healthy smile. Dental associations and professionals highly recommend that you visit our office for a cleaning once every six months.
How It’s Done
Typically, a standard dental cleaning lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. Dental cleanings are painless and do not cause any discomfort, only giving you a cleaner, healthier smile.
There are two important and necessary steps that your dentist will perform: scaling your teeth, which removes the build-up of plaque and tartar from the surface of your tooth and then polishing them, removing any lingering plaque that’s there and buffing the teeth. Dr. Flynn-Nyktas will also clean the pockets of your gums to get rid of any plaque build-up there, as well, since that area is extremely susceptible to gingivitis.
