We welcome you and are happy to provide preventive dentistry procedures including dental cleanings in our Mayfield Heights, OH dental office.
Even though dental cleanings are painless for most patients, many people are at such unease about any dental procedure, so knowing exactly what to expect during this process can help to make the necessary treatment quick and easy.
- Dental Check-Up
At our office, dental cleaning is done by a professional hygienist who always starts this procedure with an examination of the mouth. Our hygienist will use a mirror to visually check the health of your teeth, gums, and tongue. Even the best at-home brushing and flossing can leave debris behind that can cause gum disease, cavities, and other dental issues.
- Removing Plaque and Tartar
The next step involves the use of a tool called a scaler to remove deposits of tartar and plaque.
- Teeth Polishing
Finally, the hygienist will polish your teeth with a gritty paste and floss them for you.
Visiting Dr. Konstantin Pavolotsky twice each year is the best way to care for your teeth. Whether you need any additional dental procedure or not, the important role of preventive dentistry including teeth cleanings is to avert future problems altogether.

At-home oral hygiene. The most important prevention technique is brushing and flossing at least twice a day to remove dental plaque, a coating that forms on your teeth. If not removed, plaque will cause tooth decay and lead to gum disease.
