What is professional teeth cleaning?

Professional teeth cleaning also called deep teeth cleaning or prophylaxis is performed to remove plaque and tartar from teeth. It can be performed by a dentist, but often by a certified dental hygienist.  It is also done to remove staining from teeth. It is recommended that patients get professional dental cleaning done twice a year for their long term dental and oral health. Professional dental cleaning takes from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the amount of work that needs to be done.

Is professional teeth cleaning painful?

Patients may experience pain and sensitivity during the teeth cleaning procedure. Hygienists may numb the gums of the patient before cleaning to make the procedure pain free.  

What is the recovery time after having teeth professionally cleaned?

Patients who experience pain, sensitivity or bleeding after professional teeth cleaning usually recover within a few days.

What are the types of professional teeth cleaning procedures?

The types of professional dental cleaning include general dental cleaning, scaling and polishing, air abrasion, cleaning using ultrasonic scalers and laser assisted dental cleaning.

What care is required after professional teeth cleaning?

Patients should take any medications prescribed by the dentist correctly. They should rinse their mouths with warm salt water after every meal for at least two weeks. They should be wary of hard food or food that may stick between teeth. If they experience sensitivity, they should not eat or drink very hot or very cold food till the sensitivity abates.

Rating from 22 Reviews The experience so far is greatGerrie, South Africa, 23 Jul 18

So far I can only praise Dr Hartshorne for his work so far. This is a journey for me. I have been treated by him for about 8 months for 3 dental implants and the experience so far is great. I know this is expensive, however, I have trust in Dr Hartshorne ability and work. Happy with service so far.

Rating from 1 Review All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decisionJohn, South Africa, 29 Aug 18

I made an appointment for dentures at Long Beach. I’m about halfway through the process now and it’ll be another four months before everything’s complete. I’m not sure if I got a fair price for the dentures. I didn’t shop around before choosing this clinic. I went with them because it was conveniently located. There was considerable pain involved because we extracted 10 teeth at once. I was given pain medication and had follow-up visits afterwards. My dentist explained everything in detail. As we went along, she told me what she was doing and also why she was doing it. All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decision. Overall, I was treated quite well. Everyone is so friendly. The clinic is also quite nice.

unit 3 First floor Horizan Bay, Blouberg Road, Cape Town
Rating from 3 Reviews There were no additional costs. I think they’re very goodZee, South Africa, 16 Jul 18

I wanted adult braces and opted for this clinic. Not only were they close to home, but the staff and doctors were so friendly and managed to help me at the very first appointment. It’s only been two months since we fitted the braces, but already I’m seeing results. We’re currently doing the alignment and I’m noticing a big difference in my smile. Witnessing this change is simply amazing. Prior to the appointment, they quoted me a price and this is exactly what I ended up paying. There were no additional costs. I think they’re very good, but I can’t give them the full 5/5 as I still have 22 months to go before I see the final outcome.

The Dentist on Main

18 Main Road, Rondebosch, Cape Town, 7700
Rating from 2 Reviews Dentist was both thorough an quickMelissa, South Africa, 22 Apr 16

Just went in for a cleaning, and ended up going back for fillings after the oral hygienist saw some holes in my teeth I didn't even know about. The dentist was both thorough an quick with his work, and talked me through what he was doing each step of the way. Funny guy too! Hygienist and dentist seem to work really well together as a team. A MUST HAVE free service they offer for students on a budget: they checked my medical aid benefits for free each time before I went in for cleaning and fillings, and then the bill arrived showing what treatment portions my medical aid covered. The reception lady literally sat on the phone with my medical aid for over 10 minutes to confirm my benefits while I waited for my appointment.
