Dental Cleanings Q&A

What happens during dental cleanings?

Dental cleanings are an essential part of preventive dentistry, helping reduce your risk of cavities (tooth decay) and gum disease. At Smile Design Advanced Dentistry, the team determines the proper approach for each patient. 

The team begins the cleaning session by carefully analyzing each tooth and the surrounding areas of the tooth where bacteria may hide. They will also take dental X-rays to perform a thorough examination of each individual tooth, making recommendations for additional treatments as needed. 

Then, your hygienist will clean your tooth surfaces using special dental tools. Once the cleaning is complete, they will provide you with further instructions to help you improve your oral health. For example, they may recommend techniques for better brushing and flossing.  

What are the benefits of regular dental cleanings?

There are many benefits to getting a regular dental cleaning. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent decay, gum disease, and other dental issues, since regular brushing and flossing may not always remove hardened tartar and sticky plaque and bacteria from areas that are difficult to reach. 

Another benefit of a dental cleaning is that professional hygienists use mild abrasives to help remove superficial stains, leaving teeth looking whiter and brighter.

During a teeth cleaning, the team might also recommend sealants to protect teeth from developing tooth decay. Sealants are especially effective for children. 

How often should I see a dentist for a routine dental cleaning?

Smile Design Advanced Dentistry recommends you to get a professional dental cleaning every six months to remove built-up plaque, tartar, and stains. 

Regular dental cleanings enable the dentist to look for signs of cavities or periodontal disease so they can be caught in their earliest stages and are treated promptly before any complications may occur.

If you have a dental problem, like periodontal disease, you might need more frequent appointments. The team at Smile Design Advanced Dentistry is dedicated to maintaining your beautiful smile and strives to give you the best possible results with your dental needs.
