Dental Cleanings

Most children and adults should see their dentist for a regular cleaning and check up every six months. People at a greater risk for oral diseases should have dental check ups more than twice a year.  Diabetes, pregnancy, tobacco and alcohol use, periodontal and gum disease, poor oral hygiene and certain medical conditions are some of the many factors that your dentist takes into consideration when deciding how often you need your dental cleaning and check up. 


How It's Done:
You can expect your dental cleaning to last between 30 minutes and an hour. Typically, a dentist or a trained hygienist will do the cleaning. Most people find that dental cleanings are painless, and do not cause any discomfort.

There are two important steps to a dental cleaning. The first step is scaling the teeth, whereby the dental professional will remove the plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces. This can be performed by hand or with electric scalers depending on the circumstance.

The second step is polishing to remove any final plaque and buff the teeth. Polishers generally have several different sized heads to clean hard to reach places.
