Common Dental Services You Should Know

Posted on 2/7/2022 by Dr. Sebastien Murphy
Common Dental Services You Should KnowMany people are scared or intimidated by a visit to the dentist. The sound of various dental equipment, the big chair, can be overwhelming for most people. However, if you know what to expect during your dental visit, you have peace of mind and a better experience. There are many reasons why visits the dentist and having the correct information about the procedure is vital before treatment. Here are some standard dental services that patients should know and expect during a dental appointment.

Teeth Cleaning

This is the most common reason patients visit a dentist since cleanings are usually scheduled twice a year. Teeth cleaning is considered the foundation for excellent oral health, and a dental expert is well-equipped to ensure your teeth are in tiptop condition. Although regular brushing and flossing can help you maintain clean teeth, a dentist uses top-of-the-line products and equipment, minimizing discomfort during the procedure.

Teeth Whitening

Another standard procedure a patient should expect is teeth whitening. This is a non-intrusive dental procedure performed at the dentist's office. A dental expert can ensure that everything is done correctly, using hydrogen peroxide gel and specialized light to enhance whitening. While there are many products, a dentist can determine if you are sensitive to a particular whitening agent and recommend another option.


The word extraction sounds painful and scary simply because it isn't the most pleasant procedure. However, a dentist will use various pain-relieving medications like anesthesia to relax the patient throughout the extraction. There are many reasons why a dentist may recommend tooth extraction, and having a dental expert perform the procedure gives you peace of mind. Patients are likely to experience slight discomfort after the medication wears off, but this subsides after a while.
