When you eat or drink, a thin film of bacteria forms on the surface of your teeth. This is called plaque, and it can be removed by regular brushing and flossing. However, if you neglect your oral hygiene, plaque can harden into a substance called tartar. It sticks to your teeth and cannot be brushed away. In addition to affecting your smile, plaque and tartar accumulation can also increase the risk of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
For this reason, our dentists offer professional dental exams and cleanings as a part of preventive dentistry. Getting regular dental checkups can help us monitor your oral health and identify common dental issues early before they cause future complications. The procedures are non-invasive, pain-free, and usually take less than an hour.
At our dental practice, you can get your teeth professionally cleaned in a single visit that lasts for 30 minutes to an hour. The procedure involves the following steps:

The frequency of getting your teeth evaluated and professionally cleaned depends on your individual oral health and risk factors. However, the general recommendation is to visit your dentist at least once or twice a year for a dental checkup and cleaning.
At our dental facility, we provide biannual dental checkups and cleanings to keep your mouth free of tooth decay and gum infections. The overall procedure is fast, painless, and non-invasive.
Before starting the cleaning process, we will carefully assess the health status of your teeth and gums. If you have high sensitivity, we have different anesthesia options, including dental sedation, to make you feel comfortable during the treatment. Our team will ensure that you leave our clinic with a clean, bright smile.
Dental exams and cleanings are preventive measures, but you have to follow a proper care regime to maintain your oral health. After we finish cleaning your teeth, we may perform some extra steps for additional care. This can include a fluoride application that will make your tooth enamel stronger and prevent dental cavities.
To maintain the results of professional dental cleaning, it is important to follow proper oral hygiene practices at home. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss them regularly. Avoid consuming pigmented foods and beverages like coffee, red wine, or berries, as they may cause tooth staining.
It is normal to feel some sensitivity in your teeth after professional teeth cleaning. Don’t worry – it will go away on its own within 24 to 48 hours. If you still have pain or sensitivity after this period, schedule an appointment with our dentists so we can assess the root cause.
