What to Expect
A professional cleaning at MINT dentistry begins once you have gotten comfortable in a plush treatment chair with built-in massage features. After sliding on a pair of our stylish MINT sunglasses to protect your eyes, a member of the MINT team will begin addressing the plaque and tartar that have accumulated on your teeth. Cutting-edge dental equipment and modern techniques are used to remove tartar without harming your enamel or causing you discomfort. To start, an ultrasonic device works away larger areas of tartar and plaque by softening them with a lubricating mist, then removing them with gentle vibrations. Then, a handheld instrument such as a curette or scaler will be used to clean away smaller pieces of tartar and plaque. Each tooth will be attended to for optimal cleanliness. As soon as your teeth have been cleaned, the enamel will be polished to strengthen your teeth and remove stains. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment can be performed following the cleaning process.
