Teeth Cleaning – Pelham – Mount Vernon

Teeth Cleaning

How important are teeth cleanings?

Your first visit at our office is very important in establishing your oral health baseline. We will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your occlusion (bite) and a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures and of the oral anatomy.

Exams and cleanings are both crucial to your oral health, and should be scheduled routinely for a healthy, bright smile.

Looking for teeth cleaning in Pelham or Mount Vernon?

Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where the intake of harmful foods is controlled. Our dental hygiene program is designed to preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease. At the initial visit with our hygienist, oral hygiene instructions are reviewed and are reinforced at subsequent recall visits.


How happens during teeth cleaning and dental examination?

They frequently go hand-in-hand, but are two distinct aspects of your appointment at the dental office.

At a dental exam, your dentist will examine any x-rays, screen for signs of oral cancer, evaluate your gums and bone for periodontal disease, check the surfaces of your teeth for decay, and ensure that any fillings, crowns, or other dental treatment you have is still functional.

How important are teeth cleanings and what happens to your teeth during the process.

Your professional dental cleaning involves the dental hygienist removing tartar, or calculus, which is hardened plaque that has attached to the tooth surface. Special dental instruments are used to eliminate this build-up. The hygienist will also remove plaque, which is the sticky, almost invisible film that can form on the teeth.

Plaque is composed of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva—an unpleasant mixture that can inflame the gums and trigger the beginning of periodontal disease. Additionally, your teeth will be polished to a shine, removing any other stains and achieving a clean, white surface.
