What is a dental cleaning?
A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist.
A routine dental cleaning should include scaling, root planning, and polishing
Most dental cleanings take only between 25 and 35 minutes.
Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup.
There are two kinds of polishing: air polishing and rubber tip polishing.
Rubber Tip Polishing
Rubber cup polishing uses a low-speed and gentle handpiece that contains a polishing paste made of abrasive ingredients ideal for removing stains.
