Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are a crucial part of maintaining good oral hygiene and overall health. At Perfect A Smile, we emphasize the importance of regular cleanings to prevent dental diseases and ensure your smile stays bright and healthy.

Why Dental Cleanings Are Important

Regular dental cleanings are a critical component of preventive care, helping protect your oral health and avoid more invasive (and potentially expensive) treatments.
  • Plaque and Tartar Removal: Even with diligent brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can accumulate in hard-to-reach areas, leading to gum disease and tooth decay.
  • Prevention of Oral Diseases: Regular cleanings help prevent the development of oral diseases by keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
  • Early Detection of Dental Issues: Cleanings provide an opportunity for our dental professionals to detect early signs of problems such as cavities and gum disease.

Recommended Frequency

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends dental cleanings at intervals determined by a dentist. Most individuals benefit from having their teeth professionally cleaned every six months, though some may require more frequent visits depending on their oral health status.

What Dental Cleanings Involve

At Perfect A Smile, our professional dental cleanings include the following:
  • Assessment: Our dental hygienists begin with a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums to tailor the cleaning to your specific needs. Your dentist will be alerted to any potential issues for diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Scaling: This involves removing plaque and tartar from all surfaces of the teeth, including below the gumline.
  • Polishing: After scaling, your teeth will be polished to remove any remaining plaque and to brighten your smile. You can pick your own flavor!
  • Optional Fluoride Treatment: Depending on your dentist’s recommendation and your individual preferences, an optional fluoride treatment may be applied to help strengthen the enamel and prevent decay.
