Gentle Professional Cleaning

At Michigan Smile Team, we provide comfortable, gentle hygiene cleanings. If we find a cause for concern, we may recommend a deep gum cleaning to remove tartar below the gum line, smooth out surfaces where plaque builds up and eliminate bacterial infection.


Important Reasons to Get Professional Cleanings

  • To detect possible health risks, such as oral cancer and gum disease

  • To prevent tooth loss

  • To maintain good physical health

  • To eliminate bad breath

  • To have a brighter, whiter smile

The Teeth Cleaning Process

  • Physical exam, using a small mirror to check teeth and gums for any signs of gingivitis or other concerns

  • Removal of plaque and tartar, using a scaler

  • Gritty toothpaste cleaning, using a high-powered electric brush

  • Expert flossing by the dental hygienist

  • Rinsing, to get rid of any debris

  • Applying fluoride treatment, to help fight against cavities for several months
