It is recommended that you make a visit to your neighborhood dentist for a teeth cleaning once every six months. Now you may be thinking: Why do you need cleaning every six months? And what does teeth cleaning involve?  Don’t worry, we have the answers to your questions right here.

1- Overall Physical Checkup:

Your dentist will check your teeth and gums for overall health and address any issues that need to be treated. Your check-up also includes a teeth cleaning which will be performed later.

2- Tartar and Plaque Removal:

Your mouth can be harboring dangerous bacteria even when tartar is invisible to you. Your dentist will be able to spot tartar, clean your teeth to remove it and leave your teeth smooth so bacteria cannot stick to them.

3- Gritty Toothpaste Cleaning:

After your teeth are completely tartar-free, the dentist brushes them with a high-powered electric brush. Which make sounds like grinding noise. Sounds scary? But it’s a great way to get a deep clean and remove any tartar left behind.

4- Flossing:

Your dentist goes deep between your teeth using a thread like equipment known as dental floss. Professional Flossing will remove all the leftover plaque and toothpaste from your teeth. Depending on the status of your gums, you might bleed a little during flossing, which is normal.

5- Rinsing and fluoride treatment:

Your dentist will give you a liquid fluoride to rinse your mouth to get rid of any leftover debris. Fluoride treatment is used as a protectant for your teeth to help fight against cavities for several months.

Whether you need any additional steps or not, the key is to keep going back to the dentist for regular teeth cleanings to prevent problems altogether.
