Teeth cleaning: Procedure

The typical steps done by your hygienist during a dental cleaning procedure

Written by south Florida cosmetic dentist Dr. Jeffrey Lissauer, serving Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Palm Beach

On average, a dental cleaning should fall in the range of 30 to 60 minutes. Although hygienists follow different routines, each hygienist typically completes the following during the visit:

  • Cleans and polishes your teeth
  • Screens for oral cancer
  • Teaches proper brushing and flossing techniques
  • Takes necessary x-rays
  • Applies fluoride (if needed)
  • Dentist examination
  • Provides a new toothbrush and floss

If you are a new patient here at Lissauer Dental, in addition to the above, you will meet with Dr. Lissauer before your first cleaning to discuss your dental goals and desires. Together, you and Dr. Lissauer will go over any dental problems you are experiencing, your medical history, your past dental work, and any aesthetic issues you wish to address. At Lissauer Dental, we strive to get to know you and make you proud of your smile. (Learn more about what to expect at Your First Visit at our office.)
