Shreveport Teeth Cleaning and Polishing
Keeping Your Teeth Clean, Healthy & Beautiful
If you want to minimize the amount of time you spend in a dental office or avoid serious oral health problems, getting a routine dental cleaning and polishing is not only important, but necessary. These cleanings are intended to prevent bacteria buildup in your mouth that can cause decay and gum disease.

What Is Involved in a Teeth Cleaning and Polishing?
When you get a cleaning and polishing from our dentists at Sterling Dental Center, you receive a complete and thorough exam. We make sure to check any signs of redness around your gums and look for teeth that may have any form of corruption. Our dentist will then let you know what has been found and begin the cleaning treatment.
Polishing your teeth is another important step in the dental cleaning procedure. This part of cleaning can help make the surfaces of your teeth a lot smoother and, when your teeth are smooth, it’s harder for plaque to build up. To begin the polishing treatment, we use a motorized rubber cup paired with a rubbing polishing paste.
Here are a couple of other things to be aware of before your dental appointment:
- If the buildup is heavier than normal, we may suggest a deeper cleaning and polishing treatment that requires multiple appointment sessions.
- To remove tartar at the gums, an antibiotic may be needed to rid any bacteria.
- Both treatments lead to healthier oral hygiene.
Giving Your Teeth a Beautiful Shine
The dental health of our patients is very important to us. We understand that bad oral hygiene can lead to serious health issues both in the mouth and body, such as diabetes, heart disease, gingivitis, and gum disease. Our office will ensure you are given proper treatment, as well as convenient payment options and plans.
