Gentle and Professional Teeth Cleaning For the West Seneca, Lancaster, Amherst & Buffalo, NY Areas

Teeth cleanings are an essential part of your dental care because they removed the hardened plaque, stains, and other build-up on your teeth that are missed by regular brushing and flossing. Routine cleanings can help detect issues with your teeth or gums before they get worse, causing the need for more extensive dental work. 

It is recommended to visit a dentist for a teeth cleaning twice a year to stay in optimal oral health. If you’re located in the Buffalo, NY area, rely on the team at Tammy Perison DDS Family & Cosmetic Dental Care for service with a smile! Though our office is located in West Seneca, we welcome patients from Hamburg, Lancaster, Cheektowaga, East Aurora, and the surrounding areas.

What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning

Many people dread the dentist, but a teeth cleaning is nothing to be afraid of! A teeth cleaning is a simple procedure and painless but knowing exactly what to expect could help ease your stress before an appointment.

  1. Initial Exam – Before the actual teeth cleaning process begins, a dental hygienist will take a look at your teeth and gums. They will be looking for signs of gingivitis, areas of heavy build-up, and other potential concerns.
  2. Removal of Plaque & Tartar – Using a small mirror and a scaler, your hygienist will work to remove the plaque and tartar build-up tooth by tooth. 
  3. Teeth Cleaning & Polishing – Once your teeth are tartar-free, the hygienist will brush and buff them. Using a high-powered electric brush and professional toothpaste, they’ll gently scrub your teeth to remove any leftover build-up and shine the surfaces.
  4. Thorough Flossing – Regular flossing can make a huge difference in your oral health. That is why a teeth cleaning ends with an expert floss! The dental hygienist will floss deep between your teeth to ensure all the leftover plaque and toothpaste from the cleaning gets removed.
  5. Final Observations – After your teeth cleaning is finished, the dentist will inspect your teeth to locate any problem areas. If a cavity or further work is needed, a follow-up appointment will be scheduled.
