Dental Cleaning Hebron

Keeping up with your regular dental cleanings is one of the foundations of good oral health. Most dentists recommend coming to the office for an exam and dental cleaning every six months yet many Americans, roughly 36%, forgo the dentist and skip their much needed dental cleanings. There are many reasons people may avoid the dentist but it’s important to know what can happen if you do. A lack of regular dental care can result in oral health issues like cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and missed health diagnoses like oral or throat cancer. If you are in need of a dental cleaning in Hebron learn more about the process below and then give us a call at Distinctive Dental!

Why Are Dental Cleanings Important?

As mentioned above, without proper regularly scheduled dental cleanings you can develop oral health issues like cavities, tooth decay, gum disease and more. Dental cleanings remove unhealthy buildups like plaque and calculus. If you don’t have regular cleanings to remove these build ups you can end up with painful gums, rotted teeth, and more. Dental cleanings are also a time your dentist can check you for other things like signs of symptoms you may have oral or throat cancer or other systemic diseases that are related to your oral health like endocarditis or cardiovascular disease. 

What To Expect During A Dental Cleaning

Dental cleanings are a simple, straightforward, and noninvasive process. Your dental professional will typically start by using dental tools to remove plaque and tartar (hardened form of plaque) from above and below your gum line. This process is often called scaling. After your professional finishes this portion of the cleaning they will typically use an abrasive paste to help remove the tartar and other stains and to polish your teeth. Often, after the abrasive paste, your dentist will floss your teeth to clean the areas between each tooth. Lastly, a fluoride treatment is usually applied to help protect your teeth in the months between treatments. At some point during this appointment your dentist will likely also do a visual examination of your teeth looking for any signs of cavities, tooth decay, gum disease or other issues. You can also get x-rays done during a dental cleaning that will help your dentist get a better picture of your oral health and address any concerns.
