About Dental Cleanings
After the patient’s dental exam with Indianapolis area general and cosmetic dentists, Dr. Matthew Martin, Dr. Stephanie Martin, or Dr. Lynn Marshall, patients will meet with one of our trained hygienist for a thorough dental cleaning and polishing. While Martin Dentistry recommends all patients brush their teeth twice a day at home, professional dental instruments help the hygienist to reach areas the patient can't and clean the enamel deeper than a regular toothbrush. During the dental cleaning, the hygienist will remove plaque and tartar that has built up to the teeth. Once the teeth are clean, the hygienist will polish the teeth to remove stains and keep the patient's teeth bright and white. After the cleaning and polishing, the hygienist can answer any questions about daily oral healthcare and dental products.
"I’ve been a patient for at least 5 years in Broadripple. My teeth was in pretty bad shape when I went to them the first time. I used to fear going to the dentist but I was well taken care of by Dr. Steph and her team. The dental assistant Carrie is amazing and I was sad when my hygienist Danielle moved away, but the others have been great. I highly recommend."- Anonymous / Facebook / Dec 31, 2021
"I had good experiences here for a while now. The hygienist has been friendly and seemingly doing a good job. I’ve never had any major issues but cleaning and routine visits have been good. The doctors have always been friendly and seemingly thorough. More so than prior dentists I have used. The facility is nice but objectively the least important part. I have had a billing issue that was resolved."- J.H. / Google / Jul 19, 2022
"Very nice, friendly folks at Martin Dentistry. Although, going to the dentist isn’t always fun - it’s helpful to go to a place where they are thorough, caring, and friendly.Dr. Lindsey Garrison & her dental hygienists have been so nice and have explained everything to me very thoroughly. I appreciate them and all of their hard work!!"- A.D. / Yelp / Sep 06, 2022
"Always a great experience at Martin dentistry! Friendly and skilled staff are great with cleanings, X-rays, fillings, etc..,"- W.M. / Google / May 05, 2023
"I’ve been going here for about a year and had multiple cleanings, one crown and one replacement filling done. The staff are great and they offer nitrous gas for procedures at an additional cost which I appreciate. I’m very happy with the work I’ve had done and I did not have discomfort for very long after my procedures."- S.J. / Yelp / May 22, 2023
What to Expect
Dental cleanings usually start with an examination of the patient’s teeth. During the examination, the dentist will look for any signs of damage, cavities, or decay. The patient’s teeth are cleaned to remove any plaque and tartar buildup, followed by a deep clean and polish with professional dental tools. Patient will have the opportunity to discuss the health status of their teeth with their dentist as well as discuss home dental health suggestions.
After receiving cleaning services at the dentist, patients should maintain optimal oral hygiene using the recommendations provided by his office during their treatment. Patients should brush their teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and floss. If given special instructions or items to use by or office, such as specific mouthwash or toothpaste, patients should follow the directions given and schedule an appointment for follow-up.
