Dental Cleaning

Don’t Let Tooth Decay and Gum Disease Ruin Your Confidence

Dental cleaning is a procedure focused on cleaning both the teeth and gums professionally. Utilizing a variety of tools and techniques such as scaling, polishing and flossing, our dental professionals effectively clean areas in your mouth prone to bacteria buildup.

Regular cleanings can help eliminate plaque and bacteria buildup. Left untreated, these issues can lead to cavities, gum disease and more serious dental complications. By maintaining regular professional teeth cleanings, you can be confident that your smile will stay fresh and bright.

How Often Should You Get a Dental Cleaning?

The American Dental Association (ADA) advises individuals to undergo dental cleanings at least every six months. However, your dentist might suggest a different schedule, either more or less frequent, depending on your specific oral health requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Cleanings

Make sure to brush your teeth thoroughly and floss. This will help remove any food debris or plaque from your teeth, making it easier for the dentist to perform a thorough cleaning. Additionally, make sure to inform the dentist about any medications you are taking or if you have any health conditions that may affect your oral health.

After your dental cleaning, you may experience some sensitivity in your teeth due to the removal of plaque and tartar. This should subside within a day or two. In some cases, you may also experience slight bleeding or soreness in your gums. These are normal side effects and should go away soon. 

No. It is never too late to schedule a dental cleaning. Even if you haven’t had a professional cleaning in years, it is important to get one as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more buildup of plaque and tartar there will be on your teeth, increasing the risk of developing cavities or gum disease.

The cost of dental cleanings can vary depending on several factors, such as the location, the dentist’s experience, and the complexity of the cleaning needed. In general, routine dental cleaning can cost anywhere from $50 to $200. 

If you have sensitive teeth or gums, you may experience discomfort during the cleaning process. In rare cases, the use of sharp instruments may cause minor cuts or abrasions on your oral tissues. However, these risks can be minimized by informing your dentist about any concerns or sensitivities you may have.
