Dental Cleanings in Medina
One of our experienced dental hygienists will clean your teeth using a tooth polisher that buffs your teeth and removes plaque. With a scaler, which looks a bit like a small metal hook, we can remove hardened plaque from the surface and in between teeth. Your cleaning will conclude with some tips for how you can better care for your teeth in between visits to our office.
A word of caution: if you have heart problems or a heart defect, be sure to mention that when scheduling an appointment for teeth cleaning. People with heart conditions are susceptible to bacterial endocarditis, which is an inflammation of the heart’s valves or inner lining. Dr. Milewski will want to prescribe a single dose of antibiotics that you’ll take about an hour before your cleaning.
