Professional Teeth Cleaning

Patients should have their teeth cleaned every 3, 4 or 6 months. The frequency depends on several factors and will be recommended by the doctor and your hygienist. One of Dr. Mitchell’s hygienists will remove tartar, plaque, and stains from your teeth. This helps prevent gum and tooth disease.

Benefits of Professional Cleaning

  • Cleans hard to reach areas in the mouth
  • Reduces harmful bacteria in the mouth
  • Prevents gingivitis
  • Brightens the teeth

How long does a teeth cleaning take?

You should plan on spending an hour at Dr. Brian Mitchell & Associates for a professional teeth cleaning.


Molars have pits that collect food particles. Removing the food particles can be very difficult using a toothbrush. Dental Sealants fill in the microscopic holes in molars so that food stays out. Sealant prevents cavities in the molars.

Benefits of Sealant

  • Prevents decay of molars
  • Avoids most common cavities

How are Sealants applied?

First your teeth are thoroughly cleaned. Then your molars are covered with cotton to keep them dry. A mild acid solution is applied to the molars to roughen up the surface. This helps the sealant bond with the tooth. After the molars are rinsed and dried again the sealant is applied. A special curing light is used to help the sealant harden.

How long do Sealants last?

Sealants can protect a tooth from decay for up to 10 years.
