​What is a dental cleaning?

The ADA strongly recommends that a dentist or hygienist perform a dental cleaning every six months FOR THOSE WITH HEALTHY GUMS. This professional dental cleaning reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives the dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention.


FOR THOSE WITH PERIODONTAL CONCERNS, CLEANINGS EVERY 3-4 MONTHS ARE RECOMMENDED.

People who regularly practice good oral hygiene at home with proper brushing and flossing techniques typically do not experience discomfort during a cleaning. However, those who have neglected their oral hygiene habits may experience some discomfort or sensitivity during a dental cleaning. The dentist can use an anesthetic before the cleaning to alleviate any discomfort IF NECESSARY.
