The American Dental Association recommends that you get a professional teeth cleaning at least once a year. Most insurance plans will cover one every six months. If you have insurance, we recommend that you take advantage of that. Call your Las Vegas dentist, Dr. Hadley, today to schedule your cleaning. A little nervous? Knowing what to expect may you feel more comfortable.
When you come into the office, you will check in and then we will take you back to one of our cleaning rooms. You will sit in the dentist’s chair (it is quite comfortable). We will talk to you about any concerns you have, or problems areas that you would like addressed. Then, we will lean the chair back and clean your gums and the surfaces of your teeth. We use an ultrasonic cleaner and water sprayer to help loosen the plaque and remove the tarter. If there is plaque buildup, we will use a hand scraper to painlessly scrape away the plaque and tarter.
Once the plaque and tarter have been removed, we will brush and polish your teeth, then finish off with a floss. If you would like a fluoride treatment, just say so, and we will be happy to oblige.
