Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning, also referred to as professional dental cleaning, is one of those simple things that can dramatically improve your oral health.

Although regular brushing and flossing at home helps to remove food particles and reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth, there are some areas that are difficult to clean. Certain kinds of dirt like tartar (hardened plaque) can only be removed using professional tools in the dentist’s office.

If you’ve been avoiding a professional teeth cleaning, don’t be intimidated. Take the first step to better oral hygiene and a better looking smile by making an appointment today.

Reasons to get professional dental cleaning

Without professional teeth cleaning, plaque and tartar can build up and cause your teeth to appear discolored. Missing regular teeth cleaning appointments can also result in gum disease and underlying bone deterioration, bad breath, tooth decay, and even tooth loss.

Dr. Dani recommends that you visit his office in Los Angeles for professional dental cleaning every six months to get rid of all plaque, tartar, and stains on your teeth and avoid these problems. As with all oral health, prevention is the best path.

What To Expect

Teeth cleaning is usually combined with an oral checkup during routine dental visits that take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the condition of your teeth. Here’s what to expect during your appointment:

First, Dr. Dani will examine your mouth using a small mirror to check around your teeth and gums for plaque and tartar, stains, chips and cracks, signs of gum inflammation, and other oral concerns.

Plaque and tartar removal
Next, the dentist will remove plaque and tartar on the surface of your teeth, focusing on the areas between the teeth and near the gum line where bacteria congregates, using a scaler.

Gritty toothpaste cleaning
After tartar removal, the dentist will use a high-powered electric brush and gritty toothpaste to gently scrub and polish your teeth.

Expert flossing
The dentist will reach deep between your teeth and clean potential trouble areas that you rarely reach when flossing at home.

The dentist will use a liquid fluoride rinse to remove any debris from your mouth.

Depending on your case, the Dr. Dani may perform fluoride treatment to strengthen tooth enamel and help deter cavities or deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) to remove tartar below the gum line and at the roots for patients with gum disease.

Professional dental cleaning is a vital component of maintaining your oral health. Even if the dental checkup reveals that you have other problems, teeth cleaning will be the first step to restoring your oral health.
