29 Services ( View All )

Overview

Even if you are brushing and flossing your teeth perfectly at home, it is still important to receive a professional cleaning at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry twice a year. Using state-of-the-art tools, a bi-annual professional cleaning eliminates tartar and plaque that has built up while also polishing your enamel for a brighter, healthier smile. During your appointment, you can receive tips on better home oral care and learn if there are any areas that may need more attention. A professional cleaning will give experienced dentist Dr. James Peterson the opportunity to look for any issues in the mouth that might require treatment. Getting a professional cleaning is a vital part of maintaining your oral health so schedule appointments for your family at our Coppell, TX office.

Best Candidates

The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests that people schedule professional dental cleanings twice each year. Infants should receive their first dental exam before their first birthday and after that, Dr. Peterson will help you determine when your child is ready for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning can prevent cavities since plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also address tartar and stains on the enamel. If you would like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a professional cleaning for your whole family at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.

What To Expect

Your dental cleaning will start by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth, which can be hard to treat on your own no matter how often you brush and floss. Advanced tools are used to scale buildup without harming the tooth. To start, an ultrasonic device loosens bigger chunks of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, a fine handheld instrument, like a curette or scaler, will be used to remove the remaining pieces. Each tooth needs to be scaled to get all the buildup. Once the teeth are clean, the enamel will be polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment may be done after the cleaning.

Follow-Up

Dr. Peterson may suggest cleanings more frequently for some patients with concerns, like gum disease. During your treatment, Dr. Peterson or a member of his team can help you develop a home routine for good oral health by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will address your needs. These can be very beneficial for your teeth, overall health, and wallet so make sure you schedule and attend your dental cleanings at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
