Dental Cleaning (Oral Prophylaxis)
or (Scaling & Polishing)

At Smile More Dental Clinic, we provide Dental Cleaning to help maintain the patients’ gum health and promote overall wellness.

Brushing and flossing teeth consistently may not be enough to make the teeth thoroughly clean for a long time. Still, a plaque can develop near the neck of the teeth, reaching deeper below the gum line and the areas in-between. This hardened plaque carries a high degree of bacteria that can set off gum bleeding and inflammation, a hint of gum disease if left to stay. What is worst, they produce unpleasant breath and gum infection.

When doing Dental Cleanings, we use an “Ultrasonic Scaler,”
a device intended for performing the removal of disease-causing teeth deposits. We sometimes do manual scaling utilizing a hand instrument called a “scaler” to reach narrow areas between teeth and the far-reaching mouth regions hard to cover with the ultrasonic scaler. Then we use a rotary brush with a grainy prophylaxis paste to polish the teeth surfaces, followed by dental flossing. Depending on the thickness and degree of dental plaque and calculus deposit (tartar build-ups) on the individual’s teeth, the procedure may take 15 minutes to 1 hour.

The professional teeth cleaning service price would require assessing how much the adhered teeth deposits have accumulated and the extent of time needed to perform it.

In our clinic, we have classified the plaque build-ups as light, moderate and heavy status:

1.) For light degree plaque, they are the cheapest to do. This is likely to expect if you often brush your teeth and do not see many toughened deposits on your teeth. If you do not miss your regular dental cleanings, your dental plaque degree can be classified as light.

2.) Moderate thickness of hardened plaque is when you noticed a perceptible degree of dental plaque on your teeth. This happens if the dental plaque quickly stays on your teeth surface due to acidity of the saliva, teeth surface roughness and irregularities, frequent eating habits, and how predispose your teeth are to plaque adherence.

3.) Heavy classified teeth calcular deposits are more difficult to perform and require a much longer time to finish. Suppose you smoke a cigarette, drink teeth-staining beverages (coffee, tea, colas, etc.), and eat much-colored food. In that case, you have a high tendency to teeth calculus (commonly called tartar), price of doing teeth cleaning is not the minimal rate.

The usual recommended frequency for Professional Dental Cleaning (Oral Prophylaxis) is every 6 months. Oral Prophylaxis is the first vital solution to destroy harmful plaque and bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay. If left to stay on your teeth, the dental plaque and deposits consist of bacteria that are believed to be toxic to gums and exposing you to further health risks. 

We believe that preventive care is vital for keeping good oral health. Our goal is to keep our patients as healthy as possible. The best approach we have been doing for years is by doing thorough dental care and teaching our patients how to do good routine oral maintenance at home. Do not be ashamed if you haven’t seen your dentist for a long time and feel that you have many plaques or deposits on your teeth. We understand that a particular reason may cause such delay. Still, we can assure you that we have helped individuals in the same situation and good enough that they could get back their gums and teeth to health.
