Maintain Your Tooth Health

While many patients treat teeth cleanings like a formality, regular dental checkups are necessary to keep your teeth free of bacterial buildup that can result in potentially harmful dental conditions.

Our doctors at Benitez Dental Clinic recommend attending dental cleanings every 6 months. During these cleanings, our hygienists will remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup, which helps prevent more serious dental conditions like tooth decay and gum disease.

Once the hygienist has thoroughly cleaned your teeth, your dentist will examine your oral condition to get a sense of your dental health progress and let you know if there are any issues you need to address.

We recommend coming into our Mississauga dental office for a routine cleaning every six months.

The following is a brief list of advantages routine teeth cleanings provide:

  • Eliminates plaque and tartar buildup
  • Gets rid of teeth stains
  • Allows your doctor to check for common dental issues, like gum disease or tooth decay

What to Expect During Your Teeth Cleaning

Gum Health Inspection

Good gum health is crucial for a lifetime of healthy teeth. Tartar buildup or gum disease will lead to gum recession, resulting in exposed tooth roots and even tooth loss over time. For these reasons, it’s important that we thoroughly examine your gums during each visit. If your doctor notices any signs of gum recession or gum disease, they will recommend further treatment to prevent your condition from worsening.

Plaque and Tartar Removal

While twice-daily brushing and flossing go a long way toward preserving your teeth, plaque and tartar will still accumulate over time. If allowed to remain on the teeth, this bacterial buildup will wreak havoc on your teeth and gums. The only way to remove plaque and tartar from those hard-to-reach or neglected areas of the mouth is by coming into our Mississauga dental office for professional teeth cleaning from one of our experienced dental hygienists. Once your teeth are cleaned, your hygienist will also remove any stains and give them a final polish for that super clean feeling.

Dental Exam

Finally, your doctor will give your newly cleaned teeth a brief examination. In addition to physically examining your teeth, the doctor will consult your chart and x-rays to help them zero in on any problem areas or troubling patterns. The dentist might recommend further treatment or give you tips and advice on how to slow or reverse tooth decay, inflammation or gum recession. We would be happy to answer any questions you have or to hear about any discomfort, sensitivity, or dental pain you’ve experienced.

Frequently Asked Questions

We would normally recommend coming in every 6 months to get your teeth cleaned and have a checkup. However, the dentist may recommend more frequent visits if you have a specific need or we may book appointments further out if absolutely necessary for insurance or cost reasons.
Don’t wait! If you have any pain or discomfort in your mouth, call us right away! Cleanings are a good opportunity to prevent problems but are certainly not the only time to talk about them. Even if your problem seems minor, let us know now so we can fix it while it’s still minor.
Absolutely. Checkups are for your whole mouth. Gums, tongue, bones and all. If you wear dentures we still want to see you to ensure your dentures are in good shape and fit correctly and to examine the rest of your mouth and oral health.
Most dental cleanings last between 30 minutes to an hour on average, and are performed in a lying position in a comfortable dental chair.
Choose tartar-control toothpaste with fluoride. No matter how good you are with a toothbrush, dental floss is the only way to remove plaque between your teeth and keep tartar out of these hard-to-reach areas. Rinse daily. Use an antiseptic mouthwash daily to help kill bacteria that cause plaque.
With a regular dental cleaning, you can go ahead and eat after the cleaning, try to avoid food or drinks that are acidic or abrasive. However, if you received a fluoride treatment during your cleaning, you should wait at least 30 minutes before eating anything.
Continuing to brush and floss your teeth after they have been cleaned is the best way to maintain the work your dentist has done.
