Professional Teeth Cleanings
Our Davie dentist, Plantation dentist, and Tamarac dentist locations provide routine in-office teeth cleanings to keep your smile bright and healthy. Brushing and flossing are important, but you should also schedule regular cleanings to get rid of built-up plaque, tartar, and food from harder-to-reach areas. Even if you floss and brush your teeth the recommended two times a day, you should be visiting a dentist for yearly checkups and cleanings.
Before the cleaning process begins, the hygienist uses a small mirror to check the teeth and mouth. If any issues are detected, your dental hygienist may refer you to the dentist for next steps. The hygienist uses a scaler to remove plaque and tartar around the gums and between the teeth. The more tartar there is in your mouth, the more time they’ll need for removal. Professional cleanings are a simple process that offers several benefits to your overall health, including:
- Prevention of gum disease, cavities & other health issues
- Reduced chance of diabetes, heart attack & stroke
- Fresher breath & whiter teeth
- Reduced chance of mental deterioration & dementia
Remove Dental Plaque & Tartar
After your teeth are completely tartar-free, the hygienist will brush and polish them with a high-powered electric brush. While this may sound scary, it is pain-free and a great way to remove any tartar left behind from the scaler. The final step is a fluoride treatment, which helps fight cavities for several months. Teeth polishing has several health and cosmetic benefits including the prevention of staining, tooth loss, and mouth disease.

Benefits of Regular Teeth Cleanings
In-office teeth cleanings offer numerous benefits to maintaining oral health and overall well-being. Professional dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, which reduces the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. With a focus on preventive care, your dentist can identify early signs of dental issues, facilitating timely treatment and cost savings.
Cleanings also help eliminate bad breath, improve gum health, and brighten teeth through stain removal, thereby enhancing one’s self-confidence. Additionally, regular in-office cleanings support a strong oral hygiene routine, fostering long-term healthy habits and improving overall quality of life.
How Often Should I Get My Teeth Cleaned?
The American Dental Association recommends visiting the dentist for professional teeth cleanings at least twice a year. However, individuals with specific dental concerns, such as gum disease or frequent cavities, may require more frequent visits. Consult your dentist to determine the ideal cleaning schedule for your oral health.
