Don’t Put Yourself at Risk of Cavities and Gum Disease

If you skip your regular teeth cleanings, you risk having too much plaque and tartar buildup. Remember, only your dentist or hygienist can remove tartar. That plaque and tartar can lead to a range of mouth problems, from cavities to losing teeth if left too long.

If the pockets separating your gums and teeth become too large, you can lose too much of your connective tissues in this area. That can eventually lead to tooth loss.

Keep Your Mouth Clean and Healthy

Both regular and deep cleanings help prevent cavities by removing plaque and tartar. This also helps you keep all your teeth, reducing the need for future dental treatments.

Deep cleanings are particularly helpful at reducing the size of your mouth’s pockets and potentially saving your teeth. They can bring infections under control, giving you peace of mind and even protecting your overall health.

Visiting us for teeth cleanings can also give you overall peace of mind. After all, if there are any potential issues forming in your mouth, we are likely to see them. This can be something as simple as warning you about a potential future cavity and cleaning the area. Or it might be spotting the need for a root canal or an infection that needs treating. It also lets us spot oral cancer early on, dramatically improving your chances of successful treatment.

What is a professional teeth cleaning?

A professional teeth cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis, is a routine dental procedure that involves the removal of plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums. This helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. A dental hygienist usually performs teeth cleanings using special tools, such as scalers and polishers, to clean your teeth and remove stains.

There are two main types of professional teeth cleanings. Regular teeth cleanings or prophies are the cleanings that most patients have done twice a year. A deep cleaning is done with a local anesthetic and provides longer-term maintenance for patients with gum disease.

During a regular teeth cleaning appointment, our dental hygienist starts by examining your teeth and gums for any signs of issues. Then, they use a scaler to remove tartar and plaque around the gumline. You can reduce how long this part takes by brushing and flossing regularly. After removing the tartar, our hygienist uses a specialty electric toothbrush to clean your teeth. From there, she will floss your teeth, rinse your mouth, and possibly apply a fluoride treatment. It is common for the dentist to take a look at your mouth either before or after the cleaning to make sure the hygienist didn’t miss anything.

A deep teeth cleaning or periodontal scaling and root planning (SRP) is for patients who have a gum inflammation due to tartar buildup. It helps control the inflammation, promoting healing and preventing future issues. This procedure involves the dentist using a hand-held scaler to scrape plaque off your teeth manually. This is done both below and above the gumline.

Another method is to use a specialty ultrasonic tool that has a vibrating metal tip. The root planing is more similar to a rubbing motion that smooths out any rough spots on the teeth. This process encourages your clean, healthy gums to reattach to the teeth if they have pulled away slightly.

Why do I need a professional teeth cleaning?

Even with regular brushing and flossing, it’s difficult to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth, especially in hard-to-reach areas. A professional teeth cleaning helps remove this buildup, reducing your risk of developing cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Regular cleanings also help keep your breath fresh and your smile looking its best.

How often should I have a professional teeth cleaning?

It’s generally recommended that you have a professional teeth cleaning at least once every six months. However, some people may need more frequent cleanings, depending on their oral health and individual needs. Your dentist will help determine the best schedule for your teeth cleanings based on factors such as your risk for gum disease, your oral hygiene habits, and any ongoing dental issues.

What happens during a teeth cleaning?

During teeth cleaning, a dental hygienist will use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums. The process typically involves:

  1. Scaling: Using a dental scaler, the hygienist will gently scrape away plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and below the gumline.
  2. Polishing: The hygienist will use a rotating brush and a special toothpaste to polish your teeth and remove any remaining plaque or stains.
  3. Flossing: The hygienist will floss your teeth to remove any plaque or debris that may be trapped between them.
  4. Fluoride treatment: If recommended, a fluoride treatment may be applied to your teeth to help strengthen enamel and protect against cavities.


Is teeth cleaning painful?

A professional teeth cleaning should not be painful. However, you may experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity during the scaling and polishing process, especially if you have sensitive teeth or gum disease. If you’re concerned about discomfort during your cleaning, be sure to discuss this with your dental hygienist or dentist. They can take extra care to ensure that you feel comfortable and at ease during your visit.
