Teeth Cleaning Back On In Texas Dentists Offices

You can get your teeth cleaned now, but the experience may be a little different. For starters, the hygienists will be in full protective gear. They’ll wear a hair covering, goggles, an N-95 mask, and a field shield. Janessa Bock, President-Elect of the Texas Dental Hygienists Association, says she’s also wearing another mask over the N-95. They’re even wearing gowns and, of course, gloves.

Patients will wait in their cars until called in because waiting rooms are closed. Then they’ll rinse with hydrogen peroxide or iodine solution. Hygienists have stopped using ultrasonic scaling as that has a lot of water and puts out an aerosol, so they’re working with hand instruments.
