Dental cleaning, also known as a dental prophylaxis or a professional teeth cleaning, is a preventive dental procedure performed by a dental hygienist or dentist to maintain and improve oral health. It involves the removal of plaque, tartar (calculus), and stains from the teeth to prevent dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Here's what you can typically expect during a dental cleaning:

  1. Assessment: The dental hygienist or dentist will begin by examining your teeth and gums to assess your oral health. They may use a small mirror to get a better view of all areas in your mouth.

  2. Plaque and Tartar Removal: Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on your teeth, and it can harden into tartar if not removed regularly. Using specialized dental instruments, the dental professional will scrape away plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth, both above and below the gumline.

  3. Tooth Polishing: After tartar removal, the dental hygienist will use a gritty toothpaste and a rotating toothbrush to polish your teeth. This helps to remove surface stains and leaves your teeth feeling smooth and clean.

  4. Flossing: The hygienist will floss between your teeth to ensure that all areas are free from debris and plaque. This step also helps in assessing the health of your gums.

  5. Rinsing: You will be asked to rinse your mouth to remove any remaining toothpaste and debris.

  6. Application of Fluoride: In some cases, a fluoride treatment may be applied to help strengthen your teeth and protect them from cavities. This is more common in pediatric cleanings or for individuals with a higher risk of dental caries.

  7. Oral Health Education: The dental professional may provide advice and tips on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and dietary recommendations to maintain good oral health.

Regular dental cleanings are essential for maintaining oral health and preventing dental problems. It is typically recommended to have a dental cleaning every six months, but your dentist or hygienist may suggest a different schedule based on your individual needs. If you have specific dental issues or conditions, your dental professional may recommend more frequent cleanings.

Keep in mind that regular dental cleanings not only help prevent dental problems but also provide an opportunity for early detection of issues like gum disease and tooth decay, allowing for prompt treatment.
