What Happens During A Teeth Cleaning Procedure?

Dr. Bleyzer doesn't just brush your teeth like you could do at home. He actually performs a variety of important tasks that help keep you in optimal dental health. Here are just four of the things your Pomona and Stony Point dentist Dr. Bleyzer will do during your routine teeth cleaning procedure.

1. Perform an Oral Exam


One important thing your Pomona and Stony Point dentist Dr. Bleyzer will do during a routine cleaning is to perform an oral exam. He will check for signs of decay, swelling, and redness. He will look for the warning signs for serious conditions, including cavities, gum disease and oral cancer- things you can't check for at home.

2. Take X-Rays


Depending on how long it has been since you last visited the dentist and how comprehensive your exam will be, your dentist may or may not take X-rays of your teeth. These x-rays let your dentist see if you have any cavities or decay, or if you have any wisdom teeth that are ready to erupt.

3. Clean Your Teeth


No matter how well you take care of your teeth at home, the truth is that you simply cannot clean your teeth as effectively at home as your Pomona and Stony Point dentist can in the office. Using a scaler, a lightly abrasive paste and water, your dentist will give your teeth a thorough cleaning that will make them sparkle. Pomona and Stony Point dentist can in the office.

4. Discuss Further Care


Depending on what your dentist finds during your visit, he or she may need to speak to you about further treatment options. Not only will your dentist ask to see if you are practicing good oral hygiene at home, but he or she will discuss treatments such as fillings, root canals or dental implants with you, if needed.

A routine dental check-up may seem pretty uneventful, but the truth is that your dentist is hard at work making sure that your teeth remain as healthy as possible.
