Teeth cleaning or scaling is performed by a certified dental hygienist who has the experience and technique to professionally clean your teeth.
The procedure usually takes 45 minutes for an adult and 30 minutes for a child depending on the current status of their dental hygiene and cooperation.
In some cases, the hygienist will need to perform more dental cleaning "scaling" to completely remove all the tartar off your teeth which will increase the time of your appointment or you might need multiple visits to complete the procedure.
Due to dental anxieties and phobias, many people may fear getting a cleaning or even avoid the process altogether, which can have harmful effects on the teeth.
Having a full understanding of what to expect when having teeth cleaned at a dentist's office can help patients have a stress-free experience.
