Plan Your Teeth Cleaning Schedule

Dental Hygiene

Good dental care is the best way to keep your smile healthy for life, but brushing and flossing at home isn’t enough. Experts recommend that you visit your dental hygienist for professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year to enjoy optimal oral health. Your dental insurance policy probably covers the cost. The teeth cleaning doesn’t take long and it isn’t painful. The benefits of professional cleaning go far beyond making your teeth look better; it can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.

Your mouth is full of bacteria—which is perfectly normal—but it causes tooth decay and gum disease. Twenty-four to 48 hours after you receive a professional teeth cleaning, the oral bacteria the dental hygienist removed starts to re-form. Even though routine brushing and flossing helps to remove the bacteria on an ongoing basis, plaque buildup recurs within six months of your teeth cleaning appointment. Plaque that is not removed by brushing becomes too hardened to remove with a toothbrush. At this point, only a dental hygienist and a professional teeth cleaning can help.

What to Expect from Your Teeth Cleaning

First, a thorough dental exam is performed to determine the state of your oral health and hygiene. Next, your dental hygienist will place instruments into your mouth to scrape debris and tartar from between your teeth and underneath your gums. You’ll hear the sound of scraping and may feel some mild discomfort, but there should be no actual pain. The better you take care of your teeth at home, the less invasive your dental cleanings will be.

Additional Benefits of Routine Teeth Cleaning

Even if your only dental visit is for a routine teeth cleaning, your dentist can spot such problems as new cavities or gum inflammation during the exam. Seeing your dentist can even save your life, since the condition of your teeth and gums can reveal serious medical issues like oral cancer, leukemia, and diabetes.

When you practice proper at-home brushing and flossing and visit your dental hygienist twice a year, your teeth cleaning will be a breeze.
