Dental Cleaning Q & A

What is dental cleaning?

Dental cleaning at Wellness Dental Care uses cutting-edge equipment and procedures to remove tartar and plaque from hard-to-reach areas of your teeth and gum line. The practice also offers deep dental cleaning as needed to remove bacteria and plaque from beneath your gum line. 

What are the benefits of dental cleaning?

Some of the many benefits you can expect by choosing routine dental cleanings at Wellness Dental Care include:

  • Whiter, brighter teeth
  • Less plaque and tartar 
  • Reduced risk of gum disease
  • Lower risk of tooth decay

Dental hygienists at Wellness Dental Care use gentle techniques and procedures, making each dental cleaning a comfortable, relaxing, enjoyable experience.

What should I expect during dental cleaning?

During dental visits at Wellness Dental Care, your provider discusses your oral health history with you, takes dental X-rays if needed, and begins cleaning your teeth. They remove tartar and plaque in areas of your teeth and gum line you might not be able to reach well using at-home brushing and flossing techniques. 

Your dental hygienist also brushes and flosses your teeth. They offer fluoride treatment to further reduce your risk of cavities. If you need deep dental cleaning because of gum disease, they use in-depth treatments to get rid of bacteria underneath your gum line.

Your dentist examines your teeth and gums during a dental exam as needed after your teeth cleaning. They offer sealants made of specialized dental materials to prevent bacteria and decay from forming within the grooves of your molars. 

If you have tooth decay, they remove decaying areas of your teeth and use fillings or crowns to restore affected teeth and prevent future problems.

How often should I schedule dental cleaning?

Unless the Wellness Dental Care team recommends more frequent dental cleanings because of frequent tooth decay or gum disease, schedule teeth cleanings every six months with Wellness Dental Care. 

Book an appointment any time you experience tooth discoloration, pain, a visible hole in your tooth, other signs of decay, or bright red or bleeding gums (signs of gum disease).

Keep your teeth clean at home between visits by brushing them after meals, flossing every day, and using mouthwash if your dentist recommends it. Eat various fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods, but limit or avoid sodas, other sugar-sweetened drinks, and sweets.
