Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What is a teeth cleaning?

A teeth cleaning is a routine procedure wherein a dental professional gives your mouth a more extensive cleaning than you’re typically able to do with at-home care. Dash Dental Spa provides high-quality teeth cleanings at their spa-like clinic while you watch Netflix or relax to the sounds of calming music. 

Why do I need a teeth cleaning?

Even if you practice impeccable at-home care with regular brushing and flossing, there is still certain buildup your teeth can develop that requires professional treatment. When this buildup is left to sit on your teeth for too long, it leads to tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.

By having your teeth regularly cleaned by a professional, you can make sure that this buildup never sits on your smile for too long, thereby keeping your mouth as healthy as possible.

Routine teeth cleanings also give your dentist the opportunity to regularly monitor your oral health. Some conditions, like tooth decay and gum disease, are difficult to notice at first, and frequently progress into their advanced stages before you even begin to notice symptoms.

The team at Dash Dental Spa is trained to recognize indications of dental conditions at their earliest instance. So, maintaining regular teeth cleanings with the team makes sure that you never go too long without having a professional check in on your oral health, which, in turn, means that any potential dental conditions will never get a chance to develop for too long before they’re treated. The sooner you treat a dental condition, the easier, less invasive, and more effective it is.

What happens in a teeth cleaning?

Your teeth cleaning begins with a visual examination of your smile. Your dentist or dental hygienist inspect your mouth for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other dental conditions. Depending on how long it’s been since your last visit, this might involve taking X-rays to get a deeper look.

After your visual exam, your dentist or hygienist uses a special tool called a scaler to remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth one by one. Dash Dental Spa does hand-scaling in order to clean your teeth more accurately.

Next, your dentist or hygienist polishes your teeth with a gritty toothpaste and an electric toothbrush and performs professional flossing. Depending on the condition of your smile, they might recommend a fluoride treatment to provide extra protection against cavities. 

The whole process typically takes about an hour, and you should have a cleaning once every 4-6 months. To get started, schedule your cleaning today by calling the Dash Dental Spa office or booking a visit online.
