Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What is a teeth cleaning?

During a professional teeth cleaning with the dental experts at the Center for Advanced Dentistry, your provider uses special dental tools to remove plaque and tartar from teeth in hard-to-reach areas that you might miss with your home oral hygiene routine. However, professional teeth cleanings greatly reduce your risk of oral health problems. 

What are the benefits of routine teeth cleaning?

Attending teeth cleanings at least every six months helps you achieve the following oral health benefits:

  • Less plaque and tartar
  • Lower risk of tooth decay
  • Whiter teeth
  • Healthier gums
  • Lower risk of gum disease
  • Stronger teeth
  • Better overall oral health

Routine dental cleanings help you avoid more expensive dental procedures in the future. 

What happens during professional teeth cleaning?

When you arrive at a teeth cleaning appointment at Center for Advanced Dentistry, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. Your provider might take dental X-rays, if necessary, before cleaning your teeth. They use specialized dental tools to scrape away tartar and plaque and thoroughly clean your teeth.

Your dentist examines your teeth and gums to let you know if you have tooth decay or other dental issues requiring treatment. They offer you preventive fluoride treatments and dental sealants to strengthen your teeth and reduce the risk of cavities. 

If you have a cavity, your provider can restore your tooth during the same visit or at a subsequent dental appointment.

How can I maintain good oral hygiene at home?

Between professional teeth cleaning appointments, it’s important to care for your teeth at home properly. Brush them at least two times daily using a fluoride toothpaste and floss every day.

You should also eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, avoid sweets and sugar-sweetened beverages, and see your dental provider at the Center for Advanced Dentistry at least every six months for routine teeth cleanings and exams.

Don’t put yourself at risk of oral health problems associated with skipping teeth cleanings. Schedule your next cleaning and exam with the experts at the Center for Advanced Dentistry by phone or online today.
