What Happens During a Dental Teeth Cleaning

What Happens During a Dental Teeth Cleaning


What Happens During a Dental Teeth Cleaning?

  1. Removing plaque: First, your dentist will use a scaler to remove plaque from your teeth and gum line. This is the part of dental cleaning that most patients dread, as it produces a harsh scraping sound – which is normal.
  2. Gritty toothpaste cleaning: Once your teeth are completely plaque-free, your dentist will use a high-powered electric toothbrush and gritty toothpaste to polish your teeth.
  3. Flossing: The dentist will then perform professional flossing, where they can get to deeper spots in-between your teeth than you would be able to reach at home. This helps to discover pain spots and areas where your gums may bleed.
  4. Rinsing: Lastly, you will be given cups of fluoride and water to remove any remaining pieces of plaque.

The wonderful team here at Coolamon Dental Centre will ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure.

What Are the Different Types of Teeth Cleaning?

There are four main types of dental teeth cleaning procedures:

  1. Prophylaxis dental cleaning: These types of teeth cleanings are usually performed as a preventive measure to keep gums and teeth disease-free. The main tools used in prophylaxis teeth cleaning are a dental scaler and a water stream.
  2. Scaling and root planing: Also known as deep cleanings, a scaling, and root planing procedure is perhaps the most popular of all the teeth cleaning options. The main goal of this procedure is to remove tartar from your teeth and gum line.
  3. Periodontal maintenance: These cleanings are designed to treat, rather than prevent, gum disease. Periodontal maintenance often includes scaling and root planing, as well as the removal of tartar for improved oral health.
  4. Gross debridement cleaning: This is the most thorough of the noted teeth cleanings, often known as a gross scale. This treatment is used to clean teeth that have considerable amounts of plaque and tartar.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Teeth Cleaning?

There are a few major benefits of visiting a facility like Coolamon Dental Centre for professional teeth cleaning:

  • Prevents cavities: When too much plaque begins to build up on your teeth, they will start to decay. Professional cleanings leave your mouth plaque-free, thus preventing cavities and future, potentially more painful procedures.
  • Prevents tooth loss: Gum disease begins when there is a major plaque build-up on your teeth. By removing plaque effectively, you can prevent future tooth loss and effectively save money on needing a gum disease treatment in the future.
  • Freshens your breath: Practising good oral hygiene, like going for regular cleaning appointments, can help prevent bad breath.
  • Boosts overall oral health: Going for regular dental check-ups and cleanings keeps your mouth plaque-free and keeps your oral hygiene in good overall shape.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Teeth Cleaning Remove Yellow?

Yellow teeth can regain some of their whiteness through consistently good oral hygiene practices. Regularly professional teeth cleaning is a great dental hygiene habit to adopt. In particularly bad cases, your dentist may recommend teeth whitening if regular cleaning is not meeting your expectations.

How Often Should I Go for a Dental Teeth Cleaning?

Most dentists recommend going for a professional cleaning once every six months. Notably, people at higher risk, such as smokers, may need more regular dental check-ups and cleanings.

Does Baking Soda Whiten Teeth?

According to Colgate, baking soda is an effective teeth-whitening substance when used correctly during the brushing phase. However, too much baking soda can damage the enamel of your teeth. We would recommend speaking to a dentist directly to ensure your concerns are addressed while keeping your teeth in tip-top shape.
