What Are the Benefits of Dental Cleanings?

Kingwood, TX individuals who undergo regular dental cleanings can expect to enjoy a number of advantages after their procedure, like:

  • Protection against conditions such as dental caries or separate issues before they advance
  • Decreased plaque and debris buildup
  • Ability to choose fluoride treatment to strengthen and protect oral wellness
  • Enhancement of overall dental wellness and aesthetic

Who Should Have a Dental Cleaning?

Everyone needs to have their teeth cleaned. Even dentists have their teeth professionally cleaned. Since everyone has plaque and tartar on their teeth, the best way to get rid of it is to have it removed by a dental hygienist. You and your family will benefit from routine dental cleanings because it will help ward off tooth decay, gum disease, and expensive restorative treatments to repair the damage. Having your teeth cleaned regularly will help you have a dazzling smile, but the health of your teeth and gums is the most important aspect of why these cleanings need to take place.

What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?

At your Made Ya Smile Dental cleaning, we will do our best to make you comfortable throughout every aspect of the cleaning. Using sterile, state-of-the-art dental instruments, your hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar buildup off of your teeth. We will even floss your teeth, too. Then, we will polish your teeth with the hopes of removing some surface stains and give your teeth a nice smooth finish for you to enjoy. Children and adults may need fluoride treatments at the end of the cleaning. We do this at the end because the fluoride varnish must sit on the teeth for at least 30 minutes (with no eating or drinking allowed) so that it can be absorbed.

You will need to brush and floss twice a day in order to help protect your teeth and gums in between dental cleanings. If you would like to see a demonstration on how to get the most out of brushing and flossing your teeth, we can demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques.

How Often Do I Need A Dental Cleaning?

Your follow-up appointment is generally within the next six months. We will schedule your next cleaning visit before you leave your appointment.

Will Insurance Cover A Dental Cleaning?

Many dental insurance providers allow at least two preventive dental cleanings per calendar year. We advise all of our patients to take advantage of their dental visits (especially for their children). Our billing department can contact your insurance to determine what is and is not covered and what your out-of-pocket expenses will be for the cleaning. If you have a service that is not covered by your insurance, we take most major credit cards. You can also ask about our CareCredit® financing.

Dental Cleaning FAQ

How do I keep my teeth clean after my appointment?
After your dental cleaning at our Kingwood, TX office, you may feel more motivated to keep your smile looking bright and white as long as you can. We urge all of our patients to maintain the habit of brushing their teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day. We also encourage patients to brush and use a water rinse after eating. You can also use bacteria-killing fluoride mouthwash once a day to help maintain your smile, as well.

What foods should I avoid after a teeth cleaning?
We often suggest that you avoid spicy, acidic, or heavily seasoned foods on the day of your dental cleaning. You may experience some sensitivity and/or irritation and these foods may exasperate it. If you have further questions about what foods you should or should not eat after your appointment, we can answer those questions in our office at the time of your appointment.

What happens if I don’t get my teeth cleaned?
Without getting your teeth cleaned routinely by a dentist, you may begin to experience tooth decay, discoloration of the teeth, gum disease, and, in some cases, lost teeth. Dental cleanings are vital for plaque removal and tartar removal, which can be hard to get rid of completely with at-home brushing. Buildup of these can lead to bacteria that causes enamel erosion and inflammation of the gums.
