A Clean That Can’t be Matched at Home
You brush your teeth every day and, hopefully, floss too. So, do you really need a professional dental cleaning on top of your regular oral hygiene routine? Yes! During a cleaning, the dental hygienist uses special tools to remove hardened plaque (tartar) that you can’t get rid of with a regular toothbrush and floss. This is essential for preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Beyond the oral health benefits, a professional cleaning also gives you a mini smile makeover by removing surface stains and leaving your enamel smooth and shiny.

Benefits of Dental Cleanings
Plaque Hits the Road
Dental cleanings are super important for banishing hardened plaque, called tartar, that can’t be removed at home. This reduces your risk of gum disease and cavities.
Gives Us a Closer Look
While performing a cleaning, we get an up close and personal look at your teeth and gums, allowing us to spot potential issues that need further evaluation.
Acts Like a Smile Report Card
The hygienist will identify where you’re doing great with your oral hygiene routine and where you could use some improvement.
What happens during a dental cleaning?
Once you’re settled into your treatment suite, we’ll give you some wireless headphones to put on and you can queue up your favorite Netflix show, music or podcast. A friendly hygienist will use a special tool to gently remove soft plaque and tartar (hardened plaque), before flossing your teeth. They’ll then clean and polish your teeth, leaving your enamel smooth and shiny.
Why are dental cleanings important?
Regular dental cleanings go a long way in reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. This is because we use specialized tools and techniques to remove plaque and hardened deposits, known as tartar, that can’t be eliminated with a regular toothbrush and floss. During a professional cleaning, the hygienist also polishes your teeth to get rid of stains and create a smooth, shiny, plaque-repelling surface.
Having a dental cleaning means there are another set of eyes on your smile and the hygienist will note any potential issues or red flags. They’ll also be able to let you know if you need to improve any aspects of your oral hygiene routine and show you what to do, so you can banish more plaque at home.
How often do I need a dental cleaning?
While it can vary depending on your individual needs, most patients get the best results when they have a dental cleaning once every six months, or twice a year.
