Why is dental cleaning important?

Dental cleaning is important to maintain good oral health. The buildup of bacterial plaque on teeth can cause cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Dental cleaning helps prevent these problems, keeping teeth and gums healthy.

How often should I get a dental cleaning?

It is recommended to get a professional dental cleaning every six months. However, the frequency of dental cleanings may vary depending on the individual needs of each patient. The dentist may recommend more frequent cleanings if there is a greater buildup of plaque or a higher risk for cavities or gum disease.

Is dental cleaning painful?

Dental cleaning is usually not painful, although some people may feel discomfort or sensitivity during or after the procedure. If pain is experienced, the dentist can use local anesthesia to make the patient more comfortable.

How is dental cleaning performed?

Dental cleaning begins with the removal of bacterial plaque and tartar from teeth with special instruments. Then, the dentist uses an abrasive toothpaste and an electric brush to clean teeth and remove superficial stains. Lastly, a deep cleaning of the gums and spaces between teeth is performed to eliminate any plaque buildup that may cause gum disease.

What can I do to keep my teeth clean and healthy between dental cleanings?

It is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and to use dental floss daily. Additionally, it is recommended to follow a healthy diet and avoid excessive sugary or acidic foods and beverages.
