Teeth cleanings are performed by a Dental Hygienist.
Before the actual teeth cleaning begins, she starts with an overall exam of your entire mouth.
The Dental Hygienist uses a small mouth mirror and dental probe to check around your teeth and gums, for any signs of gingivitis ( inflammation of the gums ) or periodontitis where bone loss is involved and tissue pockets are present.
With a small mirror to guide her, the Dental Hygienist uses a scaler to remove Tartar and Plaque around your gum line and in between your teeth, and where it is difficult for you to reach.
The more Tartar there is in your mouth, the more time she will need to scale a particular spot.
If there are pockets present, she will have to reach deeper into the pocket to remove bacteria (biofilm) and Tartar.
Often there is process of smoothing the root surfaces involved.
