        Dental Cleaning & Checkup

        While brushing and flossing at home is essential, getting a professional teeth cleaning at the dentist at least once a year is also important for maintaining oral hygiene and preventing future problems. This is because plaque can build up and harden into tartar, especially in certain pockets between and around your gums and teeth.

        Tartar build-up is made up of billions of different types of bacteria that live and reproduce in your mouth by feeding on the food you eat. When certain types of these bacteria grow in numbers, it can lead to cavities or gum disease. A dental clean will reduce your chance of getting cavities or gum disease by significantly reducing the amount of plaque and tartar in your mouth.

        Signs You Need a Teeth Cleaning

        Your dentist will typically carry out a teeth cleaning during your regular dental check-ups twice a year. If you go a while without one, you may notice signs such as:

        Visible tartar build-up
        Bleeding gums
        Visible stains
        Sensitive teeth
        Bad breath
        Painful gums

        The Teeth Cleaning Process

        Teeth cleanings start with a physical exam of your entire mouth. Your dentist will use a small mirror to check around your teeth and gums for any signs of gingivitis or other issues.

        With the small mirror to guide them, they will then use a scaler to gently remove plaque and tartar around your gum line and between your teeth. The more tartar there is in your mouth, the more time this process will take.

        After your teeth are free of tartar, your dentist brushes them with a high-powered electiric brush. This is a great final finish to the cleaning process and will also help remove any lingering stains.

        The teeth cleaning ends with some flossing, rinsing and fluoride treatment, which involves applying foamy gel to your teeth and gums using a mouthpiece.
