Benefits of Dental Cleanings

During your professional teeth cleaning, we’ll be able to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. While brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once daily are important for oral health, they’re not enough to remove tartar. Only a dental professional will be able to remove tartar so you can better protect your oral health.

During your teeth cleaning appointment, we’ll also:

  • Evaluate your overall oral health.
  • Discuss oral hygiene practices and habits.
  • Check your bite and jaw for any issues.
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer.
  • Evaluate existing tooth restorations.
  • Take dental X-rays if necessary.


Professional teeth cleanings remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup so you can avoid cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. You may even notice that your teeth are a little bit whiter after your teeth cleaning. This is because we’re often able to remove surface stains while gently scraping plaque and tartar.

During your teeth cleaning appointment, we’ll be able to examine the inside of your mouth and take dental X-rays to catch issues early. If we find any problems, our dentist will be able to recommend the best course of action to protect your oral health. Many oral health issues can be detected early during a teeth cleaning, such as gum disease or oral cancer.
