About Dental Cleanings
Even with a perfect home oral care routine, including flossing and brushing, tartar and plaque can still form around the dental enamel. This can cause cavities and bacterial infections and other problems. To ensure the teeth remain clean and healthy, Pewaukee, WI residents should have a dental cleaning at a minimum of twice a year at DentalWorks - Pewaukee with our dentists. This is also referred to as a scale and polish. During a dental exam and cleaning, our dentists will use professional tools to slowly remove plaque and tartar on the enamel. After the cleaning, the teeth will be polished with a buffer and any additional dental treatments such as periodontal work or fillings will be discussed. Consistent dental cleanings are important for preventing oral disease.

What to Expect
Dental cleanings are typically pain-free, but if the individual has gums or teeth that are sensitive, a numbing medication can be applied. Moreover, if the patient has anxiety getting through the dental exam and cleaning due to gagging reflex, sedation options are also available at DentalWorks - Pewaukee. A dental cleaning generally starts with an ultrasonic instrument that assists to loosen and break off plaque and tartar. Next, our dentists use a hand held device such as curettes and scalers to scrape off build-up from the gumline and enamel. The last step is to polish and buff the enamel. Fluoride and flossing usually completes the treatment.
After the teeth are polished and buffed, our dentists may conduct an oral exam to test for symptoms of any oral conditions such as cancer, periodontal disease, or an abscess. To ensure the teeth remain healthy, individuals should maintain an at-home teeth cleaning protocol of brushing plus flossing daily. Patients should confirm their next appointment at DentalWorks - Pewaukee before leaving the office, generally by 6 months.
Since a professional dental cleaning two times a year is considered an important preventative care procedure, most dental insurance providers will cover the majority of the expense. DentalWorks - Pewaukee will confirm with each patient's insurance company to determine their out-of-pocket fees before billing the patient directly. Individuals without insurance plans should ask about financing options through DentalWorks - Pewaukee.
