About Dental Cleanings
Even with a consistent home oral maintenance routine, including brushing, flossing, and using fluoride, bacteria and plaque can still exist around the teeth. This can create bacterial infections, cavities, and gum disease and other problems. To ensure the teeth keep healthy, clean, and free of infection, Macedonia, OH residents should have a dental exam and cleaning about twice a year at DentalWorks - Macedonia with our dentists. This is also called a prophylaxis, which is a scale and polish procedure. During a dental cleaning and exam, our dentists will use professional tools to delicately remove plaque and tartar on the enamel. After the cleaning, the teeth will be polished to remove stains and any additional dental treatments such as fillings for cavities will be discussed. Consistent dental examination and cleaning treatments are important for creating a healthy, long-term smile.

What to Expect
Dental cleanings are usually performed without pain, but if the person has a sensitive mouth, a numbing treatment can be given. Also, if the patient has issues getting through the cleaning process due to trouble relaxing, light sedation options are also given at DentalWorks - Macedonia. A cleaning appointment starts with an ultrasonic device that makes it easier to break off plaque and tartar. Next, our dentists use an instrument such as a scaling tool to scale away build-up from the gumline and enamel. The next step is to brush and polish the enamel. Flossing and a fluoride treatment usually completes the cleaning process.
When the teeth are cleaned and polished, our dentists may complete an oral assessment to look for warnings of any oral conditions such as gum disease and oral cancer. To ensure the teeth keep healthy, patients should continue to perform an at-home oral care routine of brushing and flossing the teeth daily. Patients should discuss their next dental appointment at DentalWorks - Macedonia while leaving the office, generally for 6 months later.
Given that a professional dental cleaning bi-annually is considered a relevant preventative care service, most dental insurance companies will cover mostly all of the fees. DentalWorks - Macedonia will check with each patient's insurance policy to determine their personal cost before billing the patient directly. Anyone without insurance can talk about financing programs through DentalWorks - Macedonia.
