One of the most common reasons people see an oral health professional is to get their teeth cleaned. Regular teeth cleanings are a good idea, and provide many benefits for patients.
Preventive dental care is the essential to preserving a healthy smile. One of the ways we help patients at The MIAMI Institute enjoy healthier smiles is by providing gentle, professional dental teeth cleanings.
Most of our patients benefit from having their teeth cleaned every 6 months, or more often if necessary. These visits allow us to remove calcified bacteria (tartar) and plaque biofilm from areas that are difficult to keep clean with simple brushing or flossing.
As we clean each of your teeth, we are also screening for conditions that may be weakening your enamel or making teeth susceptible to problems later on. This helps the doctor to provide you with more proactive, preventive options before complications arise. You can then avoid certain types of conditions or unnecessary dental treatment by taking proactive measures early.
Teeth whitening is a common option patients choose after a dental cleaning. The teeth whitening process reveals a whiter smile that erases the signs teeth stains and tartar buildup. When combined with regular teeth cleanings, teeth whitening is a simple way to get the best smile possible. Learn more about teeth whitening.
