Teeth Cleaning – Why it Matters

Dental Hygiene

Taking good care of your teeth at home is important, but to ensure your long-term dental health, you need to see a dental hygienist for professional teeth cleaning regularly. Most dental insurance policies will cover the cost, and the procedure is easy and painless. Many people don’t get regular cleanings because they assume their dental care at home is adequate, but experts recommend getting a professional teeth cleaning from a skilled dental hygienist at least twice a year. The benefits aren’t just cosmetic; regular teeth cleaning can save your teeth.

Bacteria: Always a Big Problem

Your mouth is full of bacteria. Its presence is perfectly normal and natural, but it is also the cause of gum disease and tooth decay. Within only 24 to 48 hours after you receive a professional dental cleaning, the oral bacteria removed by the cleaning process starts to re-colonize. Although brushing and flossing regularly helps to remove the bacteria on an ongoing basis, plaque still forms on your teeth within six months of your teeth cleaning. Residual plaque calcifies and becomes impossible to remove without professional dental instruments.

Additional Benefits of a Teeth Cleanings

Even if your only visits are for a routine teeth cleaning, your dentist in Quail Meadows can spot early problems like new cavities or gum inflammation during the exam. Seeing your dentist can even save your life. The condition of your teeth and gums can reveal serious medical issues like oral cancer, leukemia, diabetes, and other treatable illnesses. Investing in regular cleanings is well worth the time. If you haven’t scheduled a teeth cleaning this year, make the call today.

What to Expect at a Teeth Cleaning Appointment

Your appointment will start with an exam to determine your oral health and the extent of cleaning needed. The dental hygienist will then insert instruments into your mouth to scrape debris and tartar from between your teeth and under your gums. You’ll hear scraping sounds and may feel some mild discomfort, but there should be no pain. The better you take care of your teeth at home, the less invasive your teeth cleaning will be. When you practice regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing, a professional teeth cleaning goes quickly.
