Teeth cleaning

Routine dental cleanings are important for maintaining good oral hygiene. Professional cleaning by a hygienist can remove plaque that can develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in hard-to-reach areas. It is recommended patients go in for a cleaning every six months. 

How it's done

One of Dr. Cozzi's two licensed hygienists will perform the dental cleaning. You can expect the procedure to last between 30 minutes and an hour. Most patients find that dental cleanings are painless, and do not cause any discomfort.

There are two important steps to a dental cleaning. The first step is scaling the teeth, which is when the hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth. This can be performed by hand and/or with electric scalers. The second step is polishing the teeth to remove any final plaque and create a healthy, beautiful smile.
