Since bacteria can build up on teeth, it is important to have your dentist clean them regularly. Even if you brush and floss twice a day, there are always places where plaque builds up that cannot be reached by toothbrush bristles alone. Cleanings help to remove this stubborn buildup! During your dental cleaning, our dentist will also check for any signs of oral cancer or other health problems
What Can I Expect at a Dental Hygiene Appointment?
Your hygienist will first take a thorough medical history to ensure that any preexisting conditions are not exacerbated by the cleaning. They will then proceed to clean your teeth using either manual or ultrasonic instruments. This process involves removing plaque and tartar from all surfaces of your teeth, as well as polishing them to remove any stains.
After your teeth are cleaned, Dr. Jokmels will perform a thorough exam of your mouth, checking for any signs of gum disease or other oral health concerns. If necessary, she may also recommend further treatment such as an additional dental cleaning before the typical six months or a deep-cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing.
Dr. Jokmels recommends that patients receive a teeth cleaning every six months to remove plaque and tartar buildup. However, some people may need more frequent cleanings if they are prone to developing dental problems or suffer from certain medical conditions.
