How It Works: Cleaning & Exam Process

A Physical Exam

Before starting the cleaning process, Dr. Amanda Hurley will initiate a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health to determine if there are any indications of gum disease or other dental complications. This initial assessment involves a thorough examination of your teeth and gums.

The second stage requires our Baltimore dentist to use a specialized instrument called a scaler to remove any plaque and tartar on your teeth. Depending on the amount of buildup, this process time may vary.


After the scaling procedure, your teeth will be polished using a special toothpaste and polishing tool. The goal of this step is to eliminate any remaining plaque and tartar on your teeth.

The last step in the cleaning process involves a fluoride treatment. This helps strengthen the enamel of your teeth and prevent cavities.

No, gums should not bleed after a dental cleaning procedure. However, in some cases, gums may bleed slightly if there is significant buildup of plaque or tartar. If bleeding occurs, it should stop after a few minutes.
