Teeth Cleaning

A standard teeth cleaning, otherwise called a prophylaxis, is a routine dental procedure. Special tools are used to remove plaque, calculus, and stains from the surface of teeth above the gum.

Dental cleaning is appropriate for primary, transitional, and adult dentition. 

Depending on the state of your mouth (your everyday oral hygiene and how often you visit your dentist) you might need a regular or a deep cleaning.

A standard cleaning is a minor and very common procedure that should be performed twice a year. The appointments may need to be more frequent for those who are:

  • smokers,
  • diabetics,
  • under significant stress,
  • taking medication that causes dry mouth,
  • affected by HIV/AIDS or cancer,
  • experiencing orthodontic issues,
  • pregnant
  • those who have a history or gum disease or take oral contraceptives.

A professional teeth cleaning is crucial, both to your oral and general health. It cannot be equaled by the best oral hygiene conducted at home. About half an hour after you finish any meal or snack your saliva production slows. The pH of your mouth allows a certain kind of bacteria to thrive.
