Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What is a dental teeth cleaning?

A dental teeth cleaning is a professional teeth cleaning performed by Dr. Zarabi or a qualified dentist. It’s recommended every six months and is a part of your preventive care and dental checkups.

During your professional teeth cleaning, Dr. Zarabi also looks for symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding or swollen gums, loose teeth, or pus surrounding the gums.

What can I expect during my dental teeth cleaning?

Your dental teeth cleaning begins with an examination of your entire mouth using a small mirror to check around your teeth and gums.

Using a small mirror and a scaler, Dr. Zarabi removes plaque and tartar between your teeth and near your gum line before brushing your teeth with a high-powered electric brush and a special toothpaste.

After brushing, Dr. Zarabi flosses your teeth, including the hard-to-reach areas. Next, he rinses your mouth with a liquid fluoride.

What are the benefits of dental teeth cleanings?

Both professional and at-home teeth cleanings are integral to your overall dental health, since cleaning can remove dental plaque and bacteria and prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease that develop over time.

Your dental teeth cleaning and checkup is also the chance to ask questions and receive diagnostic and preventive services and valuable educational information.

Deep cleanings can help to prevent diseases that are the result of a proliferation of bacteria. Deep cleanings eliminate plaque and tartar and help you to fight oral infections.

How can I keep my teeth clean at home?

Dr. Zarabi gives you plenty of detailed instructions to help you take care of your teeth at home and perform your own regular teeth cleanings. Brush twice a day with a soft nylon brush and a fluoridated toothpaste. Certain medicated toothpastes work well to stave off gum disease.

There are also other ways you can keep your teeth and gums cleaner and healthier, including avoiding excessive sugary and erosive foods and avoiding clenching or grinding your teeth.

For best results, you should maintain regular professional cleanings and regular self-care at home.

Your oral health is considered a good indicator of your overall health, and many dental problems reflect complications occurring in other parts of your body.
