Professional Teeth Cleanings Keep Your Smile In Tip Top Shape


Do you brush your teeth twice a day and floss every day as well? If you’re like more than 60% of Canadians, the answer is no. You know that dental hygiene is important, but sometimes it falls by the wayside.

The American Dental Association recommends regular professional teeth cleanings (once or twice a year). The specific biology of your teeth, jaw, gums, and mouth will help determine what’s best for you. Most professional teeth cleanings are done by a dental hygienist. They physically examine your mouth to see how things have changed since your last appointment and let a dentist know if there are significant concerns.

Next, the hygienist will remove plaque and tartar around your gum line and in between your teeth. This process involves scraping the buildup from your teeth. Brushing and flossing help prevent these issues, so being diligent can shorten this part of the appointment. Once the tartar is removed, the hygienist will polish your teeth with grainy toothpaste and a high-powered toothbrush. Finally, they’ll floss your teeth and rinse your mouth. You’re done!

What are the benefits of regular professional teeth cleanings? Here are a few to consider:

  • Professional cleanings remove and reduce the stains on your teeth.
  • Regular cleanings help prevent cavities and gum disease.
  • You have a lower risk of heart disease with better gum health.
  • Problems can be detected early and treated before they become serious.
  • Your dental health stays on track over time.
