Tooth Cleanings: Don’t Let Tartar Sneak Up on Your Teeth

dca-blog_article-48_brightest-smiles-best-teeth-cleaning

Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily can help you maintain healthy teeth and gums, but it’s not enough. Local family dentists provide teeth cleaning in Indiana that patients rely on for optimal oral health and stunning smiles. A professional dental cleaning employs special instruments to clean away tartar and bacteria that at-home care can’t remove. If your teeth are generally healthy, you should schedule professional cleanings at least twice a year. If you have serious medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes or lowered immunity, your dentist may recommend getting them more often. Dental cleanings not only give you a great smile; they also prevent tooth decay and periodontitis.

During a teeth cleaning, your dentist or dental hygienist will use a variety of special tools to deep clean both the surface of your teeth and below the gum line. Tools may include an ultrasonic cleaner and a water sprayer to break up and remove tartar, periodontal scalers and curettes to remove stubborn accumulations, and a polisher to clean and shine the surface of your teeth. The process should not be painful, but if you experience discomfort, your dentist can apply a topical anesthetic. If you have a significant amount of tartar buildup, your gums may bleed, or you may experience temporary sensitivity after a teeth cleaning.

Teeth cleaning in Indiana is generally affordable, costs vary depending on what procedures are needed and how much of the cost your dental insurance covers. If you haven’t had a teeth cleaning in a long time, you may need a deep cleaning or root planing, which is more expensive than a routine cleaning. That’s one reason you shouldn’t skip your dental appointments, since in the long run, procrastination costs more, especially if you develop gum disease or tooth loss.

Family dentists recommend regular dental visits and twice-yearly teeth cleaning to maintain a healthy and radiant smile for life.
