About Dental Cleanings
Even with a good home oral hygiene routine, including brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can still build up around the enamel. This can lead to decay, cavities, and bacterial infections and other problematic areas. To help the teeth stay healthy and clean, Huntersville, NC residents should have a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year at DentalWorks - Northcross Village with our dentists. This is typically known as a prophylaxis. During a professional dental cleaning, our dentists will use oral cleaning tools to carefully remove tarter build-up and plaque on the tooth's surface. After the cleaning, the teeth will be buffed and polished and any recommended dental procedures such as fillings and crowns will be discussed. Routine dental exams and cleanings are vital for a clean and healthy mouth.

"I don't even know where to begin, I just want to brag about this dental staff from a Dental Phobic perspective. Can we say WOW? Long story short, In an emergency, I had called this office and ultimately had to have a tooth extracted. Dental Fear for me is like "death"! LOL I can tell everyone, Jaime (front desk), Jessica (Ofc. Mgr.), Dr. Veders(Dentist) Deena, (Dental Assistant), Emily (Dental Asst.) Vanessa (Front Desk), Kostace (Dental Hygienist) were incredible during the extraction/follow -up and new patient exam. They ALL understood my fear and put me at ease pretty quickly. Yesterday at my new patient exam, I had a great time! I have never had the opportunity to say that with any dentist anytime in my life! We joked, I was educated and I was UNAFRAID! Please if you experience this phobic condition...Your dental staff should care about you as a whole person, not just a mouth on a conveyor belt. Not only the fear was gone, But they do a great job with all of the dental procedures and it is not agonizing either! I am quite sure that I have found my forever dentist! Thanks to all of you at Dental Works in Northcross Village/Huntersville!"- C.T. / Google / May 03, 2018

What to Expect
Dental cleanings are generally painless, but if a patient has sensitive teeth or gums, a numbing cream can be used. In addition, if the patient has trouble getting through a dental cleaning due to fear, mild sedation options are also provided at DentalWorks - Northcross Village. A cleaning usually begins with an ultrasonic tool that helps to loosen plaque and tartar. Next, our dentists use hand tools such as scalers and curettes to remove build-up from the gumline and enamel. The final step is to brush, polish, and buff the enamel. Flossing and/or fluoride usually completes the procedure.
Once the teeth are cleaned, our dentists may perform an oral examination to check for signs of any oral conditions such as cancer or gum disease. To make certain the teeth stay healthy, patients should establish an at-home oral health regime of brushing and flossing daily. Patients should schedule their next dental cleaning at DentalWorks - Northcross Village prior leaving the office, generally within six months.
Because a professional dental cleaning twice a year is considered a necessary preventative care treatment, most dental insurance carriers will cover a large majority of the cost. DentalWorks - Northcross Village will verify with each patient's insurance provider to determine their coverage before billing the patient directly. Patients without dental insurance may inquire about financing plans through DentalWorks - Northcross Village.
