The best way to keep your mouth healthy is to have your teeth cleaned regularly. Prevention and early detection are key to avoiding root canals, a tooth extraction, or any other major dental work throughout your lifetime.
What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning?
There are a few things that will happen during awith our office.
Our team will use a tool called a scalar to scrape plaque and tartar off your teeth. Tartar is dental plaque that has hardened over time, making it difficult to remove without professional help. We will also give you a professional flossing, ensuring that every hard-to-reach area is cleaned.
We’ll polish your teeth with a special toothpaste that helps remove surface-level discoloration, leaving you with a naturally brighter smile. If you’d like to have even whiter teeth, ask us about our teeth whitening options!
We offer optional treatments, such as fluoride treatments or dental sealants, that can help protect your teeth between professional cleanings. We’ll also be happy to answer any questions you might have about your oral health or other dental procedures you’re interested in.
Our dentist will also inspect your mouth for any signs of oral health issues. If we notice anything that looks suspicious, we’ll investigate further and schedule any follow-up appointments you might need. We’ll give you our recommendations so you can take better care of your teeth between appointments.
Therecommends that you come in for teeth cleanings every six months. Some patients, such as those with gum disease, would benefit from more frequent cleanings.
