Teeth Cleaning Olivette

Teeth Cleaning is an Integral Part of a Healthy Smile.


A great smile requires brushing and flossing to keep your oral health in great condition. However, you can give your smile more. Twice yearly cleanings can help ensure that your smile and your oral health are fully taken care of.

During a twice-yearly check-up, patients receive a thorough examination of their teeth, gums, tongue, jaw, and neck. Dr. Cutrona or one of our experienced dental hygienists will examine each tooth for cavities, plaque, or abnormalities. An examination of your gums will detect if any gum disease is present or needs treatment. We’ll also check to see if TMJ is developing, or if any other ailments could arise from your joints, or glands concerning your oral health. If necessary, Dr. Cutrona may recommend additional X-rays, an oral cancer screening, or a further periodontal inspection.

Our Dental Hygienists will thoroughly and carefully clean your teeth with professional-grade dental products and tools. Professional cleanings are recommended to be given twice a year to prevent cavities and identify any oral health issues as early as possible. A professional cleaning supplements the oral hygiene you maintain at home.

The dentist or hygienist will use scalers, curets, and in some cases ultrasonic scalers to thoroughly clean the entire surface of each tooth, including the portion below the gum line. Once your teeth are cleaned of any plague or other obstructions, we’ll polish them to make sure that any surface stains are lessened. Tooth polishing is commonly one of the final steps in a professional dental cleaning. To polish the teeth, a dentist or hygienist will use a rubber cup-shaped instrument and an abrasive toothpaste or a mixture of baking soda and water to make teeth appear shiny and smooth. The final step is the application of a protective fluoride treatment.
