Here are some common questions patients have about their dental cleanings:
Why should I get my teeth cleaned professionally?
Brushing and flossing are vital to having a healthy mouth, but no oral hygiene routine is complete without dental cleanings at least twice a year as part of a regular dental checkup. Dental cleanings are essential for your overall and oral health. Teeth cleanings remove buildup of tartar and plaque that normal brushing might not get to, protecting you from gum disease, cavities and other complications. Dental cleaning is important to keep teeth clean and to help your body maintain oral health.
What happens at a dental cleaning?
One of our amazing dental hygienists will clean your teeth to remove tartar and plaque buildup. Next, they will floss your teeth and measure the gums for signs of disease. Your hygienist can tell you areas of the mouth that you need to clean better or put more focus on. If any bleeding or other problems are found, you may discuss treatment options as well.
How often should I schedule a dental cleaning appointment?
If you showed any signs of gum disease, it is recommended that you get a dental cleaning every three months or more. If you are simply maintaining good oral hygiene, it’s generally recommended to have an appointment every six months. Talk with your dentist about what works for you. Scheduling one is easier when your dentist is local.

How can I maintain my oral health afterwards?
At-home care for your teeth is crucial. To maintain your teeth, you need to brush and floss at least twice each day. Eat a diet rich in vegetables and avoid sugary foods like candy that can cause damage. Dental cleanings are key to maintaining a beautiful and healthy smile.
