Professional Dental Cleanings in Columbus, OH

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist. Most dental cleanings take only between 45 and 60 minutes. Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to tooth decay and gum disease which ultimately affects the entire body. In a healthy mouth, routine cleaning is at and above the gum line removal of plaque, stains, and buildup.

Scaling

This is the process of removing plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces in a variety of methods, depending on the amount of plaque and tartar.

Dental hygienists traditionally perform scaling by hand. However, new and advanced technology has lead to more modern methods such as electric scalers. This sophisticated tool allows dental cleanings to be performed more efficiently and in less time. To achieve the best results, both electric and manual scaling methods are combined for dental cleanings.
