About Dental Cleanings and Exams
Brushing and flossing your teeth every day are great first steps for maintaining your dental health, but a good oral care routine should also include twice-yearly cleanings from a skilled dental provider. At Robert M. Taylor III, DDS, we use advanced equipment for professional cleanings to treat built-up plaque and tartar before polishing your enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. After your treatment, you can get tips on better home oral care and learn if there are certain areas that need extra attention. A professional dental cleaning will give Dr. Robert M. Taylor III the opportunity to check for any problem areas in your mouth that might require treatment. Regular professional cleanings are a crucial part of maintaining your dental health, so make an appointment at our Bay City, MI office.
What to Expect from Dental Cleanings and Exams
Dental cleanings focus largely on removing plaque and tartar, which can accumulate on the enamel, even with proper brushing and flossing habits. Advanced tools are used to scale buildup without harming the tooth. First, a device with ultrasonic technology loosens large areas of tartar and plaque with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, your hygienist will use handheld tools like a scaler or curette to remove the remaining pieces. Every tooth will be scaled to get all the tartar and plaque. After the teeth have been scaled, your enamel will be polished to remove stains. After your cleaning, we may offer professional fluoride treatment if necessary (or at your request). We may also use our state-of-the-art oral scanner to generate a 3D computer image of your teeth and gums so that Dr. Taylor can take a more thorough look at any potential dental health issues that may need to be addressed later.
Dental Cleanings & Exams Reviews
I am a student who is interested in going into dental hygiene and I was hired to work co-op so I could see what its like being in an office and get the experience while still in high school. I was welcomed with open arms and everyone there is great! Each staff member is very sweet and loves showing/teaching me new things. Best place ever and I am always treated with respect. Not only are the front desk girls amazing but Doctor and all the girls in the back are one of kind. This is a great office and everyone there makes sure every patient is well taken care of!
This is a very friendly and experienced group. They work with you on getting the right schedule for you. They are amazing at doing root canals. They had a ruff time with me to start. I hadn't been to a dentist in 8 years and the dental hygienist had to do a double cleaning to get my teeth where they should be. Now I have an awesome smile because of them.
All of the staff are so friendly and pleasant to be around. I actually look forward to my cleanings so I can see everyone!
My dentist was out of town and I had a crown come out. I called the Dr Taylor’s office and they had me come in the same day!! I made my next cleaning appointment there and I have been with Dr. Taylor’s office ever since! The staff is amazing.
I had a great experience at my cleaning today, Tracy was excellent and Dr Taylor make me feel very comfortable
