Teeth Cleaning

What is teeth cleaning?

Getting your teeth professionally cleaned at least once or twice a year at a dental office can help to remove plaque and tartar, prevent gum disease and cavities, and remove stains. Professional teeth cleaning is an important step in maintaining your oral health.

During a professional teeth cleaning session, a dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar with a metal tool. Then, they will brush and floss your teeth and use a fluoride treatment to protect you from tooth decay. Your dentist will also examine your teeth and mouth for any signs or symptoms of oral health conditions.

Dental scaling removes the plaque and tartar from your teeth that you cannot do at home with normal toothbrushing. The hygienist will again use the small mirror and a dental scaler to remove the plaque and tartar. You may hear some scraping on your teeth, but you should not experience any discomfort.

What are the benefits of teeth cleaning?

Prevent cavities

Plaque, the whitish film that builds up on your teeth, is the leading cause of tooth decay. This acidic substance eats away at the tooth enamel and, if left unattended, can lead to cavities. Over time, plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can’t be removed with just brushing and flossing. Instead, removal requires a visit to the dentist who has specialized tools just for the task.

Stop tooth loss

Gum disease, which starts with built-up plaque, is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. As gum disease advances, plaque moves further down the tooth where it can destroy the supporting bone in your jaw, causing teeth to loosen and fall out. Luckily, the chance of this happening to you can be greatly reduced with regular dental cleanings and good oral hygiene habits. During a cleaning, your dentist can identify gum disease and take steps to treat it before it becomes a serious issue.

Brighten your smile

Using tobacco and drinking coffee, tea and wine can all stain your teeth. A dental cleaning can remove built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth. The result? You’ll have a whiter, brighter smile.

Freshen your breath

Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent persistent bad breath. Even if you brush and floss regularly, getting a cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and odor-free.

Boost your overall health

Studies have shown a connection between oral and overall health. Regular dental cleanings may help lower your risk for certain health issues, like heart disease and stroke. Many medical conditions, some of them life-threatening, can be detected in their early stages by your dentist during a routine oral exam.
