At Dr Be Smiles, our dentist will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, leaving your mouth clean and refreshed. This is essential to maintaining dental health and preventing gum disease and other serious health problems. Smoking or chewing tobacco regularly puts you at a much higher risk of developing oral cancer. By receiving regular teeth cleanings, you can help reduce your chances of developing this deadly disease!

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’ve noticed bleeding when you brush and floss or if your smile is visibly yellowing, schedule a visit for a cleaning and checkup as soon as possible.

Why is Teeth Cleaning Necessary?

  • When you eat certain foods or consume sugary drinks, your enamel is temporarily weakened and cannot protect teeth against plaque buildup. 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 your tooth’s surfaces.
  • 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 chances of developing gingivitis.
  • Routine checkups are also highly recommended for everyone. During 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. If you have a more complex case, we may recommend additional treatments like scaling and root planing. These procedures help you maintain healthier teeth and gums over the long term. It’s recommended that patients get professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year. Patients that suffer from gum disease may need more frequent visits to help treat the condition and prevent it from worsening.
