What Is Preventative Care Professional Teeth Cleaning?
Professional Teeth Cleaning is an important part of Preventative Care that is an essential dental service to maintain oral health and prevent common dental issues. At Healthy Smiles, we offer professional teeth cleaning performed by our skilled dental hygienists trained in removing plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth, giving you a clean and healthy smile.
How it works?
During a preventative care professional teeth cleaning appointment, you can expect the following:
Examination: A dental expert will thoroughly inspect your oral health. They will inspect your teeth, gums, and overall oral health to look for symptoms of decay, gum disease, or other dental problems.
Plaque and Tartar Removal: The hygienist will gently remove the plaque and tartar accumulation from the surfaces of your teeth using special dental tools. This process, called scaling, focuses on the regions that are challenging to reach with routine brushing and flossing.
Teeth Polishing: Once the plaque and tartar are removed, the hygienist will polish your teeth using a gentle abrasive paste and a rotating dental tool. This helps remove surface stains and leaves your teeth with a smooth, shiny finish.
Flossing and Rinsing: The hygienist will floss between your teeth to remove any remaining debris and then ask you to rinse your mouth to eliminate any particles.
Oral Hygiene Instructions: The hygienist will offer customized oral hygiene advice as part of the teeth cleaning service. They will also guide you through the right techniques to brush and floss for maximum effect. If necessary, your hygienist may suggest particular dental care items that will aid in the promotion of excellent oral health.
Benefits Of Preventative Care Professional Teeth Cleaning
Regular preventative care professional teeth cleaning offers numerous benefits:
Plaque and Tartar Removal: Professional cleaning eliminates plaque and tartar accumulation, lowering the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and foul breath.
Prevention of Dental Issues: Cleaning helps prevent dental problems by detecting early signs of decay, gum disease, or oral abnormalities. Early intervention can prevent more extensive treatments in the future.
Fresher Breath: Removal of plaque, tartar, and food debris contributes to fresher breath, improving your overall oral hygiene and confidence.
Brighter, Whiter Smile: Teeth cleanings remove surface stains caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, and other factors. As a result, your teeth will appear brighter and more vibrant, enhancing your smile's aesthetics.
Gum Health: Cleaning removes bacteria that contribute to gum inflammation and disease, promoting healthier gums and reducing the risk of gum-related issues.
Overall Health: Good oral health is linked to overall well-being. Regular teeth cleaning can help minimize the chance of developing systemic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Early Detection of Oral Cancer: During the examination, the dental professional can identify signs of oral cancer, enabling early detection and improving chances of successful treatment.
Personalized Oral Hygiene Guidance: Dental professionals can provide tailored advice on oral hygiene practices, including brushing techniques, flossing methods, and appropriate dental products for your specific needs.
