ROUTINE TEETH CLEANING IN CERRITOS, CA

Every person, no matter how young or how old, needs a routine dental cleaning at least twice per year. This easy preventative measure keeps teeth and gums healthy for a beautiful, dazzling smile. At Dentist of Cerritos, we provide high-quality routine teeth cleanings to keep our patients’ smiles happy and healthy.

WHY SHOULD I GET A DENTAL CLEANING?

Every person on the planet naturally gets plaque and tartar buildup on teeth. While some people may have more of a genetic predisposition to certain oral health issues such as cavities or gum disease, everyone is at risk. Routine teeth cleanings at Dentist of Cerritos remove plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to cavities and gum disease (periodontitis).

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A ROUTINE TEETH CLEANING?

The American Dental Association recommends a minimum of two dental cleanings per year. If you are at risk of or have gum disease, we may recommend that you get quarterly teeth cleanings. (For people with periodontitis, special deep cleanings are recommended.)

ARE ROUTINE DENTAL CLEANINGS PAINFUL?

While routine teeth cleanings might be a little bit uncomfortable, they should not be painful. We do our best to make you feel relaxed with a comfortable chair and enjoyable music in the background.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL CLEANINGS?

The benefits of regular teeth cleanings are both health-oriented and cosmetic. One of the most important benefits is to your health, because plaque and tartar buildup can lead to bacterial infections in the gums. Thus, benefits can include:

  • A cleaner and brighter appearance to your teeth, which will have less visible plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Improved health outcomes for people with diabetes, who are more at risk of gum disease due to inadequate blood sugar regulation.
  • Less of a chance of infection and complications such as a stroke or heart attack.
  • No more bad breath, which is often caused by bacterial buildup in the mouth!

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DENTAL CLEANING?

If you have never had a dental cleaning, or it’s been a while, you might feel more at ease knowing what to expect. (Don’t be afraid to ask us about our processes before a procedure!)

Your dental cleaning will be performed by one of our well-trained and licensed dental hygienists. The hygienist will examine your mouth and then work on removing plaque and tartar buildup. This is usually done with a variety of metal tools, but an ultrasound device may also be used.

A suction device is used to remove excess water, saliva, and particles from the mouth during the procedure.

After the plaque and tartar is cleared away, the dental hygienist will floss your teeth and polish them with your preferred flavor of toothpaste. You can then rinse with mouthwash.

WHAT DOES A ROUTINE DENTAL CLEANING COST?

If you have dental insurance, it most likely covers the costs of twice-yearly dental checkups and cleanings, sometimes up to 100%. If you do not have your own dental insurance, routine teeth cleanings are very affordable and certainly cost a lot less than the potential problems you might get down the line without them!
