Teeth cleaning is a preventive procedure that removes plaque and tartar buildup from the surfaces of the teeth. When performed regularly, it is considered one of the most effective preventative measures to help stop the progression of many dental conditions, such as gingivitis.
At Blue Sage Dental, our dentist or hygienist uses special instruments to gently scrape away any plaque buildup from the teeth. Then, they polish the teeth with a high-powered electric brush to leave them smooth and shiny.
Typically, patients should get their teeth cleaned every six months. However, if your teeth and gums are less than healthy, our dentist may recommend you come for an exam and cleaning more often. Maintaining your oral health is essential to prevent more expensive treatments down the road!
In addition to removing plaque and tartar buildup from the surfaces of your teeth, a teeth cleaning can also help prevent teeth stains.
