Even if you have a perfect oral hygiene routine at home, it can still be beneficial for you to get a professional dental cleaning at Contemporary Dental Arts twice each year. Using advanced equipment, a professional dental cleaning removes built-up plaque and tartar, and then polishes the enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. After your cleaning, you can ask for tips on caring for your teeth at home and discover certain areas that may need treatment. A professional dental cleaning will give dentist Dr. Lauren Shanard a chance to identify any problem areas in your mouth that may need care. Having a professional dental cleaning is an important step in keeping up your dental health, so make an appointment for yourself and your family at our Williston, VT location.

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning two times a year. Babies should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, Dr. Shanard can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next dental appointment. A professional cleaning may help you avoid cavities because built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you’d like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, boost your health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a cleaning for yourself and every member of your family at Contemporary Dental Arts.
What To Expect
A professional cleaning starts by addressing the tartar and plaque that have built up on your enamel, which is difficult to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Special instruments are used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. First, a device with ultrasonic technology addresses large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld instruments such as a scaler or curette will remove smaller pieces. Every tooth will be individually scaled to get all the tartar and plaque. After your teeth have been cleaned, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains and strengthen the teeth. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment can be performed following your cleaning.
Dr. Shanard may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns such as periodontal disease. Throughout your cleaning, Dr. Shanard or an assistant on her team will help you develop a good home oral care routine by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your specific concerns. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health, so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Contemporary Dental Arts.
A professional dental cleaning is a preventive treatment, so it's typically covered by insurance.
