Teeth Cleaning

When we say teeth cleaning, we’re talking about professional dental cleaning, not just brushing teeth at home. Without proper brushing, tartar and plaque builds up and discolors teeth, affects gums and bone, and leads to tooth decay or tooth loss.

Teeth cleaning remove plaque & tartar from the surface of the teeth and is important for the ongoing health of teeth & gums.
It is generally recommended a thorough & professional cleaning every 6 months, though some patients may need cleanings more often if they are prone to decay or have a history of gum disease.

Signs that indicate the need for a dental cleaning/scaling procedure:
  • Gums are red, swollen, & sore.
  • Gums bleed whenever one brushes or flosses.
  • Teeth have begun to feel loose in the jaw.
  • Pockets have formed between the teeth & gums.
  • Bad breath that does not go away after brushing, flossing, or using mouthwash.
Goals & Benefits of Teeth Cleaning
  • Prevention of tooth decay that results from excessive plaque & tartar buildup.
  • Prevention & relief from gum disease.
  • Relief from bad breath.
  • Detection of more serious dental issues. (We screen for any signs of tooth decay, presence of irregular teeth, oral cancer, & other problems during & after the cleaning appointment.)

Teeth cleaning is done with an instrument called a Dental Scaler which lightly vibrates on the tooth surface to clear away accumulated debris. Depending on the condition of the teeth, the time a cleaning takes can vary. But usually, the whole appointment can last between 30 minutes and an hour which includes teeth cleaning followed by polishing of teeth.
Regular preventative dental care can go a long way towards limiting cavities & tooth loss down the road. Get started today by contacting us at Avant Dental for a checkup.
