Dental Cleaning

What is Dental Cleaning?

Dental cleaning removes stains, calculus, and plaque from teeth to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. This type of dental treatment is especially important for patients who have had previous dental or gum problems, but it is also good preventative care for anyone, young or old. Spring Branch Dental Group also provides pediatric dental cleanings in Houston.

The official recommendation of the American Dental Association (ADA) is that adults have at least one dental cleaning every six months to help prevent gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay.

Do I Need Dental Cleaning?
Your mouth is home to a large number of bacteria that, given the right conditions, can cause significant harm to your teeth, gums and oral tissues. If these bacteria remain on your teeth and gums, you can experience tooth decay, gum disease, and even more serious complications.

A thorough dental cleaning thoroughly eliminates pockets of tartar (hardened dental plaque) that can create favorable conditions for bacterial growth and infection.

Plus, if your teeth are stained from foods and beverages such as coffee, wine or tea, our professional dental cleaning in Houston removes stains and gives you a clean, uniform smile.

What Happens In A Dental Cleaning Appointment?
Your appointment at our Houston dental cleaning office takes no more than 40-60 minutes for our expert dental team, and the process is fast and easy, so you can sit back and relax while you receive a thorough dental cleaning. During the process:

Your dental hygienist will give you a brief oral exam. They will also thoroughly clean your teeth and possibly apply a fluoride varnish to help strengthen your teeth.

Next, they gently remove plaque and tartar, which is what can cause gum disease, tooth decay and other problems in the future. For this, they use special instruments, such as ultrasonic scalers, precision hand tools, and a suction device that removes excess saliva and debris.

Finally, after your cleaning, your dentist may recommend dietary changes or treatment for any problems or health issues found during the appointment.

Education on healthy brushing and oral hygiene habits is important, so your dental hygienist may also give you advice on brushing your teeth to help you develop a good oral hygiene routine and keep your teeth and gums clean.
