Proactively Maintain Optimal Oral Health 

Teeth cleaning is a preventive dental procedure that removes plaque and tartar to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. It typically includes scaling and polishing to remove stains and build-up on teeth surfaces. Regular professional cleanings help maintain oral health, ensuring teeth and gums remain healthy and reducing the risk of dental issues.

Why Do I Need Regular Teeth Cleaning?

Regular teeth cleaning is essential because brushing and flossing alone can't remove all plaque and tartar buildup, particularly in hard-to-reach areas. This buildup can lead to cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues if not addressed early. Professional cleanings prevent these problems by thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums. Without regular cleanings, plaque can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. And if that’s left untreated, you may eventually suffer from dental decay, gum disease, or periodontitis.

    What Happens During Professional Teeth Cleaning?

    During professional teeth cleaning, your dentist or hygienist examines your mouth to check for any signs of oral health issues. Then, they use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, particularly in hard-to-reach areas that regular brushing and flossing can't address. Next, your teeth are polished to remove surface stains and smooth the enamel. The cleaning usually concludes with a thorough flossing to remove any remaining debris and the application of fluoride treatment to protect against cavities.

    How Often is Teeth Cleaning Recommended?

    Professional teeth cleaning is generally recommended every six months. However, some individuals with specific dental health concerns may require more frequent cleanings. Regular cleanings help maintain optimal oral health, prevent dental issues, and ensure early detection of any problems. Your dentist can provide recommendations based on your unique needs.
