What is a Dental Cleaning?

What is a dental cleaning?

Dental cleaning is a procedure in which tartar and stains are removed from regular foods, leaving teeth clean and whiter.

How do I know if I am a candidate for Dental Cleaning?

Anyone is a candidate for dental cleaning. If you have teeth or even if you don't have teeth and have dentures, dental or denture cleaning is very important. Although you brush your teeth perfectly well, there are high retention areas where the brush and dental floss cannot remove the plaque. That is why we, with our specialized devices, remove all tartar and plaque, leaving teeth clean.

Does dental cleaning hurt the enamel on my teeth?

If the dental cleaning is not carried out with the correct technique or with specialized appliances and with an excellent edge, of course the enamel can be damaged. Even a dental cleaning if it is not carried out with the instrument in optimal conditions, can burn the tooth causing its necrosis (pulp death). Another important issue about dental cleaning is hygiene. Many diseases are transmitted through the mouth. If the handpiece or work tip is not perfectly sterile, they can transmit various viruses and bacteria that put the patient at risk. For this reason, at Dental Integral Baena hygiene is one of our highest priorities, and we perfectly sterilize all the materials for your peace of mind and health.

How often is it recommended to have a dental cleaning?

Dental cleaning should be carried out at least twice a year. There are patients who find more tartar or plaque and we recommend cleaning three times a year.
