Importance of Professional Dental Cleaning
People only tend to visit the dentist when they experience discomfort or pain. However, seeing your dentist shouldn’t only be an emergency visit but a timely, regular visit. While regular flossing and brushing your teeth are good habits, there are still some benefits you can only get through consulting a professional dentist. Some of which include:
Prevention of oral health problems
Regular consultation with the dentist prevents any serious oral health problems from occurring. It keeps you away from any gum disease, tooth decay or other oral health diseases.
Maintains a brighter smile
Accumulation of plaque and tartar can cause discolouration to your teeth over time. Regular cleaning with your dental hygienist prevents these from happening and helps in maintaining a whiter, brighter and healthier smile.
Keeps a fresh breath
You don’t want bacteria to build up in your mouth and cause hygiene problems. Professional dental cleaning prevents this and maintains your oral health and fresh breath.
Timely and routine exams and x-rays save you from any unknown serious dental issues over time. Investing in routine checkups is better than spending a large amount on any serious emergency treatment that may arise later.

What to Expect During a Dental Cleaning Procedure:
Dental cleanings are a 60-90 minute procedure that helps prevent gum disease and takes care of your overall oral health. When you’ve come in for a dental cleaning procedure, you can expect our dental hygienists to:
Teeth and gum examination
Before starting with the procedure, your hygienist needs to know what they have to work on. The hygienist uses mirrors and dental tools to examine the overall health of the mouth.
A scaler is a small hooked tool that the dentist uses to clean the plaque and tartar that gets accumulated over time. It is basically a cleaning tool and is used to clean off large deposits of plaque.
Polishing is done to give the teeth a shiny effect. Polishing with flossing is done to make sure there aren’t any stains or remains of calculus. This is the final step of the dental cleaning process. However, due to COVID procedures, we are required to start with the polish.
