Family Dentistry in Southside Indianapolis Provides Routine Dental Cleanings
By maintaining good oral hygiene all year round, it's important to keep up with your routine dental cleanings. Our family dentistry in Southside Indianapolis provides professional cleaning, which removes mineralized plaque that builds up even with meticulous brushing and flossing. The areas that are difficult to reach are usually the ones affected most with this buildup. That's why we recommend going for a cleaning once every six months.
How Your Cleaning is Done
Your cleanings typically last between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on the individual care you need. Dr. Talus will come in for a thorough exam, including x-rays, to make note of any dental damage like cavities, as well as take a look at the x-rays to see what's under the surface. These cleanings are typically painless, but we encourage patients to let us know if any discomforts they may experience.
There are two important steps to a professional dental cleaning. First, our hygienist will scale the teeth, which removes the buildup of plaque and tartar from the tooth's surface. We use our state-of-the-art dental tools to complete this step. After, we'll polish and buff your teeth to remove any lingering areas of plaque. Once your cleaning is complete, we encourage you to ask our hygienists ant questions you may have about taking care of your teeth at home.
