What is a professional teeth cleaning?

A professional teeth cleaning is a routine dental procedure that involves the manual removal of plaque, calculus, and staining from your teeth to promote positive oral health. While everyone needs a professional dental cleaning, some people may require deeper cleaning, particularly if you have periodontitis, or advanced gum disease.

Why do I need a professional teeth cleaning?

A regular professional dental cleaning is by far one of the more important healthcare appointments you should be careful to keep. The fact of the matter is that, even if you brush twice a day and floss daily, it is not enough to remove all of the bacteria and buildup that accumulates your on teeth and at the gumline.

  • Remove surface staining
  • Prevent tooth decay & gum disease
  • Early detection of oral cancer& tooth damage
  • Receive education about proper brushing and flossing

Why are dental cleanings so important?

Oral health is closely linked with your overall health. In fact, studies have shown that periodontitis is linked to conditions like cardiovascular disease and stroke, and in pregnant women, it has been linked to preterm labor and low birth weight. This simple, painless, and routine appointment can have serious implications on your overall health. Showing up to your regular teeth cleaning isn’t just about keeping your smile bright and gums healthy; it’s about committing to your overall health and wellness.

What happens during a teeth cleaning?

During your teeth cleaning, your dental hygienist at Paradigm Dental will use special tools to scale your teeth, the process whereby your hygienist removes the plaque buildup by hand. Once the plaque is removed, your hygienist will polish your teeth with a gritty material that will help remove surface stains and excess bacteria. Following this, your hygienist will floss your teeth to ensure that all of the surface of your teeth has been professionally cleaned. If you choose, your hygienist can also apply a fluoride treatment to help protect your teeth from decay.
