What is a dental cleaning?
A routine dental cleaning, often called dental prophylaxis, is a specialized treatment used to clean both the teeth and the gums thoroughly. This is an important part of good oral health care and is done in the dental office with our hygienists. Patients must have these cleanings done regularly by our team to avoid the risk or progression of conditions such as gingivitis, periodontitis, and cavities.
This treatment is done right in the dentist’s chair with our staff. During the treatment, patients will enjoy:
- Plaque and tartar removal – even the most thorough of patients who brush and floss their teeth as recommended will develop some plaque and tartar on their teeth. They may also have some calculus, which is an area of hard buildup that can only be removed with a dental hygienist’s assistance. During the cleaning, patients will have all of these problems addressed for a cleaner, more beautiful teeth.
- A healthy-looking smile – when patients have routine dental cleanings, they can decrease the severity of staining on the natural teeth. This is vital to ensuring your smile looks great at all times. Superficial stains can be easily removed with cleaning. Patients with permanent staining and discoloration can speak to the dental team during cleaning regarding certain procedures that can be used to disguise these issues, such as composite bonding or porcelain veneers.
- Fresh breath – when there are no food particles and bacteria in the mouth, patients can avoid the development of halitosis or bad breath. This is a common symptom of poor oral hygiene. When the teeth and gums are cleaned thoroughly by our professionals, patients will enjoy a fresher smile and often have fewer halitosis issues.
- Learning more about solutions for their smile – many patients feel uneasy about asking about cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of their smile, even if their smile is healthy. During cleanings and evaluations, many patients will take the time to ask about aesthetic services that could benefit their smile.
