    Teeth Cleanings  

    At Dr Be Smiles, we perform regular teeth cleanings to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, leaving your mouth clean and refreshed. This preventative practice is essential to maintaining dental health and preventing gum disease and other serious health problems. Regular teeth cleanings are also a good opportunity to get an oral cancer screening, which is especially important for patients who smoke or chew tobacco regularly since these habits put them at a much higher risk of developing oral cancer.  

    Our dentist will also check your gums for signs of gingivitis or other health issues. They may recommend that you come in more frequently if you show signs of gum disease to help prevent future infections. Brushing and flossing are the best ways to keep your smile healthy between dentist visits. However, if you notice bleeding when you brush and floss or if your teeth are turning yellow, schedule a visit for a cleaning and checkup as soon as possible.

    Why Are Teeth Cleaning Necessary?

    When you eat certain foods or consume sugary drinks, your enamel gets attacked by acids that weaken it. The same happens when plaque builds up on your teeth when it is not properly removed. Because of this, it’s best to get your teeth cleaned by a professional so that any plaque that has built up can be removed from all the surfaces of your teeth. 

    If you have certain health conditions such as diabetes, periodontal disease, osteoporosis, anemia, high blood pressure, or are pregnant, it’s essential that you have your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year. This is because these health conditions can increase your risk of developing gingivitis. 

    Routine checkups are also highly recommended for everyone. During your routine checkups, we will not only check the health of your teeth and gums but also perform an oral cancer screening to help diagnose any problems early.

    The Teeth Cleaning Procedure

    First, we make you comfortable by numbing the treatment area with a topical gel or anesthetic. Then, we use special instruments to clean and polish your teeth. Finally, we floss and remove any plaque buildup from hard-to-reach spots. For more complex cases, we may recommend additional treatments like scaling and root planing. These procedures help you maintain healthier teeth and gums over the long term.  

    We recommend that patients get professional teeth cleanings at least twice a year. Patients who suffer from gum disease may need more frequent visits to help treat the condition and prevent it from worsening.
