What Are Dental Cleanings?

Dental Cleanings, also known as dental prophylaxis, is a professional cleaning procedure performed by a dental hygienist or dentist. It involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth, along with a thorough examination of the oral cavity. A Dental Cleaning typically includes the following steps:

Dental Examination

Before the actual cleaning, the dentist will evaluate your overall oral health, looking for any signs of cavities, gum disease, or other dental issues.

Tartar and Plaque Removal

Using specialized tools, the dental professional will gently remove the plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, especially those hard-to-reach areas that regular brushing and flossing may miss.

Teeth Polishing

After the plaque and tartar are removed, your teeth will be polished to remove any surface stains, leaving them smooth and shiny.

Fluoride Treatment

In some cases, a fluoride treatment may be applied to help strengthen your teeth and protect against cavities.

Why Use Us for Dental Cleanings?

Regular Dental Cleanings provide numerous benefits for your oral health:

Prevents Gum Disease

Dental Cleanings help remove plaque and tartar, which are major contributors to gum disease. By keeping your gums healthy, you can prevent issues such as gum inflammation, gum recession, and tooth loss.

Freshens Breath

Persistent bad breath can often be a sign of oral hygiene issues or underlying dental problems. Dental Cleanings help eliminate bacteria and plaque, reducing bad breath and leaving your mouth feeling fresh and clean.

Early Detection of Dental Issues

During the Dental Cleaning, the dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or oral cancer. Early detection is crucial in effectively treating and managing these conditions.

Maintains a Bright Smile

Dental Cleanings remove surface stains and help restore the natural luster of your teeth. With regular cleanings, you can enjoy a bright and radiant smile.
