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.
"Enjoyed my first visit at Martin Dentistry. Very professional and friendly staff!"- A.K. / Google / Apr 21, 2016
"The Martin's, husband-and-wife team, have been my dentists for the past 12 years. Throughout that time they have been very patient, kind, and reliable. When I chose to transition my children from a pediatric dentist to the adult side they were integral in keeping my young children happy while doing an unpleasant activity of cleaning their teeth. They don't offer services that we don't need, they keep us healthy without taking advantage. I highly recommend this Family to take great care of your family."- B.N. / Yelp / May 22, 2016
