Dental Cleaning Q & A

Why do I need dental cleanings?

Diligent at-home oral care like brushing and flossing are absolutely essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, but you also need to attend routine professional dental cleanings to ensure exceptional oral health.

Regular checkups and cleanings enable dental professionals to ensure hard-to-reach areas of your smile stay clean and allow the opportunity to monitor the development of potential oral health problems. 

Treating dental problems in the earliest stages allows your dentist to correct issues more effectively, efficiently, and economically, giving you the healthiest smile with the least amount of discomfort.

What happens during a dental cleaning?

Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics uses the latest techniques and technologies to deliver comprehensive and preventive dental care. Your dentist removes bacteria and plaque from your teeth using one of several types of cleanings. Examples include:

Prophylaxis dental cleaning

During prophylaxis dental cleaning, your provider carefully removes tartar, plaque, and stains, and thoroughly examines your teeth.

Scaling and root planing

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning your dentist offers if you have evidence of gum disease. They remove tartar from your teeth in hard-to-reach areas – even beneath the gum line in some cases.

Periodontal maintenance cleaning

During periodontal maintenance cleaning, your dentist completes specialized teeth cleaning designed to reduce bacteria that causes gum disease. They offer periodontal maintenance cleaning every three to four months after you undergo scaling and root planing.

Which type of dental cleaning is right for me?

To determine which dental cleaning is right for you, dental providers at Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics examine your teeth and gums and review your oral health history. They might take dental X-rays, and they personalize each treatment to best match your needs.

How often do I need dental cleanings?

How often you need dental cleanings depends on your personalized oral health needs. As a general rule, you should get a professional cleaning and a checkup twice every year. The team at Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics can work with you to determine a more specific schedule for your cleanings.
