Dental Hygiene Cleanings

Dental hygiene cleanings, or professional teeth cleanings, are preventive procedures by dental hygienists to keep your oral health in check. These cleanings focus on removing plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth.

Dental Checkup

Treatment Process

  • Assessment: The hygienist checks for inflammation, gum disease, cavities, and concerns.

  • Plaque and Tartar Removal: Specialized instruments remove plaque and tartar, especially from hard-to-reach areas.

  • Scaling and Root Planing: For advanced gum disease, cleaning below the gumline and smoothing root surfaces may be done.

  • Fluoride Treatment: If needed, a fluoride treatment is applied to strengthen enamel and prevent decay.


  • Decay Prevention: Regular cleanings remove plaque, reducing the risk of cavities.

  • Gum Disease Prevention: Cleaning helps prevent gum disease, avoiding more serious issues.

  • Fresh Breath: Plaque and bacteria removal combat bad breath.

  • Stain Removal: Polishing during cleanings enhances tooth appearance.

  • Early Issue Detection: Cleanings help identify early signs of oral problems for timely intervention.

  • Overall Health Maintenance: Oral health contributes to overall well-being, benefiting the entire body.

  • Preservation of Dental Work: Cleanings help maintain the health of existing dental work.

Dentist Tools

It's generally recommended to have dental hygiene cleanings at least twice a year, adjusting based on individual needs for long-term dental and gum health.
