Patient Getting Teeth Cleaning

What is teeth cleaning?

To achieve optimal oral hygiene, patients should have preventative dentistry services with routine at-home habits. Preventative dentistry services include cleanings, x-rays, exams coupled with Professional cleanings are the process of eliminating build-up from the surface of the teeth. Plaque and tartar accumulate above and below the gum line. At-home brushing often isn’t enough. Brushing can’t remove tartar once it’s formed.

Plague can start to harden, turning to tartar, in as little as 24-hours. Only professional dental tools at your dentist’s office can, which is why routine cleanings are essential.
During a routine cleaning, a huge focus will be on removing debris. However, there is more to cleanings than just removal of tartar that can lead to tooth decay. Dr. Fenton may apply polish that can smooth the teeth, freshen breath, and prevent tooth decay. Sealant and fluoride may also be used.

The goal of cleanings is to stay proactive with your oral health. Preventing complications like gum disease, gum recession, cavities patients can enjoy their smiles for many years to come. As part of any excellent oral health routine, you should be brushing and flossing at home twice daily.

Routine cleanings are often covered by dental insurances at 100%. We strive to make preventative care cost-effective for our patients. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.

As you can see, there are many reasons to consider routine teeth cleanings. At your 6-month checkup and cleaning, we can look for problems that may have occurred between visits. By staying proactive and correcting these sooner rather than later, you can expect to have less extensive procedures. For things like gum disease, cleanings can address these issues and set the foundation for better cleanings at home.

Teeth cleanings take approximately one hour to complete. Though, if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, we may need to complete your cleaning in two visits, in what is known as deep cleaning. This is entirely dependent on our patient’s unique situation. We personalize our patient’s treatments so that they have the world-class care they have come to expect from Dr. Fenton and our office. Should we find signs of cavities or cracks, we can also discuss a plan for correction.

Restore your mouth’s health with routine cleanings

Having better oral health is good not only for your smile but for your body as well. Cleanings, while seemingly an easy procedure is often the most effective at eliminating problematic tartar that could lead to tooth decay and loss. Tooth decay, once it starts, will keep going. If you lose a tooth, the alignment of your smile may change. You may also notice gaps and bite problems. Often patients find that with cleanings these issues can be avoided entirely. Professional cleanings are the best method for proactively protecting your smile.

What happens during teeth cleaning?

During a cleaning, your dentist and hygienist will be focused on removing plaque and tartar build-ups above and below the gum line. We will also be looking for problems like signs of oral cancer, cracks, or cavities. Along with the removal of tartar, flossing, polishing, and application of fluoride, treatments can occur.

Do teeth cleanings hurt?

Normally, regular teeth cleanings won’t hurt. Some patients may have tooth sensitivity before visiting the dentist. In these cases, there might be some discomfort during the cleaning, but it shouldn’t be painful. Other factors that contribute to sensitivity include tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.

What happens if you never get your teeth cleaned?

Tartar will develop the longer you go between cleanings. Tartar is the biggest contributor to gum disease and tooth decay. It’s essential that tartar and plague be routinely removed. Eventually, tooth decay can lead to tooth loss.

Does teeth cleaning make teeth weak?

No. In fact, teeth cleaning can promote stronger, healthier teeth. Scaling teeth is essential for removing the tartar that contributes to tooth decay. Eliminating plaque and tartar won’t scrape the enamel of your teeth.
