Dental Cleanings West Hollywood
No matter how well you brush your teeth, small deposits of tartar can slowly build up on the surface of your enamel, eventually leading to potential cavities and tooth decay. Therefore, it’s crucial that you get your teeth professionally cleaned at least once every six months. If it’s been a while since you last had a dental hygiene visit, we can help!
Me Dental Spa is a leading oral healthcare provider in West Hollywood and we are ready to provide a quality cleaning to keep your mouth bright, fresh, and healthy. Here’s what you need to know about professional dental cleaning.
Why Brushing Alone Isn’t Good Enough
Even if you’re vigilant about brushing and flossing, there are some areas of your mouth that are difficult to reach with a toothbrush. Over time, these areas will become coated in tartar, which is a hard, yellowish substance that can only be removed with professional cleaning. If left untreated, tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
A professional cleaning will remove the tartar from your teeth, leaving you with a bright, healthy smile. In addition, the hygienist will be able to spot any early signs of gum disease or tooth decay and can provide you with the care and information needed to prevent these problems from advancing.
What to Expect During a Professional Cleaning?
During a professional cleaning, the hygienist will use a small mirror to examine your teeth and gums for any signs of tartar buildup or gum disease. Then, they will use a scaler to remove any tartar that’s present. The scaler is a small, hand-held tool that has a curved, serrated edge. The hygienist will gently remove the tartar without damaging your enamel.
Once all the tartar has been removed, the hygienist will brush your teeth with a special toothpaste that contains fluoride. Fluoride is a mineral that helps to strengthen your tooth enamel, making it more resistant to cavities and decay. After your teeth have been brushed, the hygienist will floss your teeth and then give you a rinse with a fluoride mouthwash. This will help to remove any debris that’s left behind and will also help to prevent cavities.
Once your cleaning is complete, the hygienist will provide you with information on how to take care of your teeth at home and will schedule your next appointment.
If in the course of your cleaning, the dentist or hygienist finds signs of cavities or decay, they may recommend additional treatments, such as a filling or crown. If you have gum disease, they may also recommend a deep cleaning, which is a more intensive form of cleaning that’s designed to remove tartar from below the gum line.
