Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What happens during a professional teeth cleaning?

Dental teeth cleanings are an integral part of your preventive dental care. Even if you’re diligent about brushing your teeth properly and often, with a professional teeth cleaning, your dentist can remove the buildup of tartar and plaque from the surfaces of your teeth and polish them to make them shine. 

A professional teeth cleaning at Just For Your Smile involves several steps. At your teeth cleaning, you can expect: 

  • A physical examination
  • Plaque and tartar scaling
  • Tooth polishing with a special toothpaste and electric brush
  • Flossing
  • Fluoride treatments

Your dentist might do a mouth X-ray to get a better picture of your jawbone and teeth. X-rays can help your dentist identify any signs of infection or disease that don’t cause symptoms and aren’t visible to the naked eye. Finally, your dentist gives you nutritional guidance and other helpful tips on how you can optimize your dental health and your oral care routine at home.

Just For Your Smile promotes optimal dental hygiene to help you prevent more extensive dental procedures in the future.

How often should I get teeth cleanings?

The American Dental Association and most qualified dentists generally recommend getting professional teeth cleanings once every six months. These guidelines are suitable for many people, but you might need more frequent professional dental cleanings and checkups if you have or are at risk of having certain dental diseases and conditions.

What are the advantages of professional teeth cleanings?

Professional teeth cleanings provide many advantages that home care can’t offer, such as: 

  • Brightening and whitening your smile
  • Helping you avoid cavities
  • Helping prevent tooth loss
  • Allowing your dentist to identify and treat problems early
  • Making your teeth feel fresh and clean
  • Improving your oral and general health

Your Just For Your Smile provider works hard to make you feel as comfortable as possible in the dental chair, while giving you access to top-quality, beneficial dental care. 

Just For Your Smile uses advanced dental tools and technology merged with many years of experience.
