Teeth cleaning is a vital part of your oral hygiene and involves the removal of plaque. The purpose is to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease.
Even though you may routinely clean your teeth daily, but our dental hygienists can remove the hardened plaque (tartar) that are not removed by routine cleaning at home. Besides brushing and flossing regularly at home, regular professional teeth cleaning is the most important thing you can do for the lifelong health of your mouth. When a dental hygienist cleans your teeth they remove soft and hard deposits from your teeth that cause cavities. The main reason for having your teeth cleaned is to prevent or delay the progression of gum diseases.
This is the most common question we get when it comes to setting regular dental appointments. You should see a dental hygienist for teeth cleaning depending on the health of your teeth and gums.
Healthy children and adults should have their teeth cleaned once or twice a year. However, if you smoke regularly or have a tendency to get gum infections you should have teeth cleanings more often.
These determinations will be made as part of the personalized overall dental health plan that you and dentist will craft together.
This procedure involves the use of various instruments to first loosen tartar deposits, and then remove the deposits from the teeth. Our general recommendation is to have your teeth professionally cleaned at least two times per year (every 6 months).
