Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What is a teeth cleaning?

Teeth cleanings are essential for preventing oral health issues and maintaining the health of your gums and teeth. Instead of waiting for problems to occur and then treating them, a teeth cleaning can keep you ahead of developing any issues.

Getting your teeth cleaned at Brite Dental Spa includes:

  • Removing plaque
  • Removing tartar
  • Removing minor stains
  • Getting fluoride treatments
  • Polishing
  • Sealants for children
  • X-rays, if needed

Brite Dental Spa recommends routinely scheduling two teeth cleanings a year to protect you from issues, such as gingivitis, gum disease, and tooth decay. 

Why do I need a teeth cleaning?

Not only is your oral health important for your mouth, but it can have a direct effect on your entire body’s health. 

When you practice good oral hygiene, you cut down on the bacteria that goes into your lungs. Studies have found that oral health has a link to diabetes, pneumonia, heart conditions, and more. That’s why it’s vital to talk to a dentist about your oral health care needs.

The professionals at Brite Dental Spa can keep your teeth and gums in good shape, which may reduce your risk of other health issues.

What’s a teeth cleaning like?

When you visit Brite Dental Spa, your exam begins with digital X-rays, if needed, and a visual look inside your mouth. Your highly-trained hygienist cleans your teeth by scraping off any plaque and tartar buildup.

Then they brush and polish your teeth with a small, powerful spinning brush and a professional-grade toothpaste to clean them effectively. Flossing happens last to remove any remaining particles. You might also receive a fluoride treatment to keep your teeth strong between visits.

How often should a teeth cleaning occur?

While dentists recommend having your teeth cleaned twice a year, in some cases, you may need more frequent cleanings. The American Dental Association wants you to talk to your provider about your cleaning needs for your personal oral health.

It’s important to develop an ongoing relationship with your dentist so they can monitor your oral health history. That way, your dentist can be sure to provide you with treatments that cater to your individual needs.
