Also called dental prophylaxis, a dental cleaning is a preventive procedure in which specialized dental tools and polishing procedures are used to remove plaque, tartar and stains from your teeth above the gum line. Regular dental cleanings preserve the natural teeth and their supporting structures by thwarting the onset, development, and recurrence of dental conditions and diseases. Most dentists and dental hygienists recommend professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year, and x-rays once a year.
Preventive dental care can help you avoid serious and costly dental problems before they start.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with a consistent oral hygiene routine. Twice-daily brushing and flossing can prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease and other serious dental problems. Eating a healthy diet and limiting sugary drinks and foods can help to keep your mouth healthy and prevent cavities.
Prevention also includes regular visits to the dentist. Dental cleanings, exams, oral cancer screenings and x-rays all are effective tools that can help you improve and maintain your oral health. Sealants and fluoride treatments are effective preventive procedures that can help to protect your teeth as well.
Periodic examinations and x-rays can assist with early detection of dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, worn restorations and impacted wisdom teeth. There are a variety of treatment options that can halt the progression of these problems before they become more costly and serious.
