What is a dental Cleaning?
Even if you are brushing and flossing your teeth perfectly at home, it can still be beneficial to schedule a dental cleaning at Sunrise Smile Design twice each year. Using state-of-the-art equipment, a bi-annual professional dental cleaning treats built-up tartar and plaque, and then polishes the enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. During your treatment, you can ask for tips on caring for your teeth at home and learn if there are any areas that may need extra care. A professional dental cleaning will give our skilled dental team a chance to look for any areas of concern in your mouth that might need care. Having a professional dental cleaning is a vital part of maintaining your oral health, so make appointments for your family at our Phoenix, AZ office.

"I've been going to sunrise now for just under a year. All my cleanings have been very pleasant and quick. Rick has taken care of a few of my cavities too.. Rick and his team are amazing... The communication between text and emails about scheduling / rescheduling appointments is outstanding. I'm now in the process of having an insert installed. After the molding was done, it should only be a few weeks turn time."- A.B. / Google / Dec 11, 2021

Best Candidates For a dental Cleaning
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends people have a professional cleaning two times a year. Children should have a dental exam before their first birthday and following that, we can help you determine when your child is ready for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning can help you avoid cavities since built-up plaque, the main cause of tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also address stains and tartar on your enamel. If you want to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, boost your health, and save money in the long run, schedule a dental cleaning at Sunrise Smile Design.
Dental Cleaning Process
Your dental cleaning starts by removing the plaque and tartar that have built up on your teeth, which is difficult to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Advanced equipment is used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. First, an ultrasonic device addresses bigger areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Then, handheld instruments such as a scaler or curette will be used to remove smaller pieces. Each tooth will be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar. After your teeth are clean, your enamel will be polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If needed or requested, a professional fluoride treatment can be completed after the cleaning.
Our team may suggest cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns such as gum disease. Throughout your treatment, we will help you develop a good home oral care routine by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will focus on your needs. These can be very beneficial for your teeth, wallet, and overall health, so be sure to attend your dental cleanings at Sunrise Smile Design.
