Ensure Good Oral Health
with Teeth Cleaning
Getting your teeth properly cleaned by a professional dentist or dental hygienist is an essential part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. While daily brushing and flossing help to safeguard gums from plaque, it’s not enough to remove the tartar and stains that build up over time. If left unaddressed, the bacteria and tartar can cause cavities and even lead to the development of gum disease. That’s why you should never put off your dental appointments or wait to have your teeth cleaned if you spot an issue. The sooner you get your teeth cleaned and inspected, the healthier your smile will be.
If it’s been a while since your last cleaning, contact us today and our team at Costello Family Dentistry will ensure that you receive a thorough teeth cleaning that will keep your smile bright, white, and healthy for years to come.

Teeth cleanings are very important to maintain a healthy and confident smile. Cleanings allow for a hygienist to remove stains that can discolor or dull your teeth, making your smile brighter. They also help to prevent gum disease and early tooth loss. Teeth cleanings allow for oral problems to be discovered while they are small and treatable. Proper teeth cleanings keep your mouth in top shape and alert your dentist to any possible need for fillings or other treatments for your teeth.

Depending on how frequently you have your teeth cleaned, there will be different things that need to be done. You will sit in a large, comfortable dental chair as your hygienist begins your cleaning. Hygienists use professional instruments to gently remove all of soft plaque and hard dental calculus from your teeth. Then, your hygienist will floss and polish your teeth to make them look their best. It is possible that you will need to have x-rays taken of your mouth to ensure that there aren’t any problems between teeth or below the gum line. If your mouth is generally healthy and you haven’t had any problems then you might not need x-rays at every appointment, but if your oral health is less stable, your dentist might suggest more frequent x-rays and cleanings.

The most common recommendation for the time between dental cleanings is around 6 months (or twice a year). If you have any dental problems, then your dentist will recommend you to come in more often, as often as every 3 months until oral health improves. The goal of dental cleanings is to find any potential problems before they become big issues that require more invasive treatments. However, this only works when patients come for regular visits. Simple things that might indicate that it’s time for a trip to the dentist are poor oral health habits, a history of gum disease or cavities, tooth and mouth pain, and overall health.

The best time for a child’s first dental cleaning is around the age of one or a few months after their first tooth comes in. A child’s first dental cleaning involves a lot less than most dental cleanings because most children haven’t yet developed any dental problems. This appointment is mostly to allow your child to meet their dentist and gain comfort in a dental office. Their dentist will examine their bite, check all of their teeth for decay, and make sure that there are no other possible problems with their jaw, gums, or oral tissues.
