Who is a Candidate for Deep Dental Cleanings?

If you have teeth that can be cleaned, you’re a candidate. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends people have professional dental cleanings twice per year. Infants should get a dental exam before their first birthday and following that, our Corona, CA team can help you decide when your child is ready for their next dental appointment. A professional cleaning may help you avoid cavities because plaque buildup, the biggest reason for tooth decay, is removed. A cleaning will also remove stains and tartar on your enamel. If you would like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, boost your health, and save money in the long run, make an appointment for a deep cleaning at Sunshine Dental.

What should I Expect with a deep cleaning?

Your dental cleaning will begin by addressing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth, which can be difficult to treat at home with the usual daily brushing and flossing. Advanced equipment is used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. In the case of a deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, built-up tartar is scraped away from under the gumline. Every tooth will be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar removed. Once the teeth have been cleaned, your enamel will be polished to remove any stains. If requested or needed, a fluoride treatment may be completed after the cleaning for additional protection against tooth decay.
