We offer dental cleanings in Beverly Hills, California, to keep your oral health in tip-top shape.
Dr. Philippe Athuil recommends coming into the office every six months for a dental cleaning. This is an appointment that you should never feel nervous about or be afraid of! This is a painless process that only involves small tooth vibrations and little amounts of pressure. Your dentist and hygienist will deeply clean your teeth by gently scraping and scrubbing each tooth, removing any harmful bacteria and plaque. They will also floss between each tooth and eliminate any food particles that are stuck in the cracks and crevices in the mouth. Your cleaning will usually end with a fluoride treatment, which involves your dentist inserting flavored fluoride in your mouth in the form of a tray, gel, or varnish. This substance is used to replace all of the lost minerals your teeth need to stay healthy and strong.
Your appointment will generally end with your dentist examining your teeth and identifying any cavities or issues that could alter your oral health. If he finds any problems, he will usually suggest scheduling a follow-up appointment to get them taken care of. If there are no apparent problems, your dentist can praise your oral hygiene work and send you on your merry way.
