What to Expect at a Dental Cleaning


If it’s been a while since you last visited a dentist, you may be curious to know what you can expect at your upcoming dental cleaning. Before you’re shown to the treatment area, you’ll be asked to provide your health history. Be sure to indicate whether you’re pregnant or could be pregnant, since this will affect whether you’ll receive dental X-rays.

When you’re shown into the treatment room, you’ll be asked to lie back on a chair while the dental hygienist takes X-rays and thoroughly cleans your teeth. He or she will use special tools to gently scrape away the plaque and tartar. Then, your teeth will be polished. After your cleaning, the dentist will perform a comprehensive examination and explain his or her findings.
