At Arlington Dental Excellence, we take dental cleanings very seriously, as to the fact that prevention is the best technique to stop cavities from occurring. During the first dental appointment in our office which we consider the most important, we teach our patients the importance of oral hygiene, teach them how to read x-rays so that they are capable of reading x-rays and diagnosing themselves. We also take intraoral images to share with the parents so that they can see what we see. At the end of the appointment, we teach all our patients how to properly floss, brush and rinse. By utilizing intraoral technology we are capable of showing our patients on every visit how by using the right technique their oral health is on an absolute uprise.
When we finally get to the cleaning part we believe in ultrasonic technology to clean the teeth, so you can say goodbye to all the scraping since it’s damaging to the surface of the tooth due to the scraping. An ultrasonic cleaner vibrates at speed of 30Hz and breaks all the build-up around the teeth and spraying water to wash it away and the water acts as a cooling mechanism for the heat generation caused by the vibrations of the ultrasonic.
