Good oral hygiene is critical to a healthy mouth and strong teeth. Because of this, most dentists and dental hygienists recommend regular dental cleanings, ideally at least twice a year. There are many reasons for this.
Not only do regular dental cleanings help cut down on the plaque and tartar buildup that contributes to bad breath, discolors your teeth, and puts you at risk for dental decay, they also help prevent bacterial infections in the mouth. When there is an abundance of plaque below the gum line, our dentist may recommend a deep dental cleaning to help.
When you commit to routine teeth cleanings and other preventive dental care, you’ll also reduce your risk of cavities and major dental procedures, like root canals or extractions, in the future.
A standard teeth cleaning appointment is a straightforward process. During your preliminary dental health examination, your dentist will look at your teeth to check for cavities, broken crowns or fillings, and any other areas of concern. X-rays may also be recommended if there are any potential issues.
After the preliminary evaluation, the dentist or hygienist will clean and floss your teeth, gently removing layers of built-up plaque that discolor teeth and lead to bad breath. Depending on your dental history and needs, you may also receive a fluoride treatment with your cleaning. If you are in need of a deep cleaning, our experienced dentists will administer the sedation method of your choice and gently clean below the gum line.
When you get up to leave the office, your mouth will feel fresh, and your smile will look bright and white. You’ll also have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ve done something good for your teeth and your overall health.
