Dental cleanings use professional-grade equipment to not only clean the surface of the teeth but also to go where normal toothbrushes can’t – below the gum line. It is below the gum line where infections can develop, which can lead to a whole host of issues and conditions. When the highly acclaimed dentists at Washington Center for Dentistry perform dental cleanings, they aren’t just doing it to leave patients with whiter, better-looking teeth. Even though a more dazzling smile is obviously a result, dental cleanings help keep a patient’s mouth and entire body healthier in the long-run.

Benefits of Dental Cleaning

Of course, our patients want the whitest, brightest, most dazzling smiles possible, but our dental cleanings go beyond that. In fact, they go beneath that—beneath the gum line to where at-home toothbrushes just can’t reach. Our dental cleanings:

  • Clean below the gum line where our toothbrush can’t reach to get the bacteria that can turn into problem-causing infections.
  • Preserve and keep teeth longer by preventing tooth decay and cavities.
  • Prevent mouth plaque from migrating throughout the vascular system.
  • Prevent stains from building up on the enamel.
  • Maintain lighter, whiter, younger-looking teeth.

After Dental Cleaning

After a thorough and refreshing dental cleaning, it’s important to protect the teeth to prolong that wonderful look and feeling. A patient should follow good oral care and hygiene, which includes:

  • Brushing and flossing after every meal or snack, or at least two times per day.
  • Eating a healthy diet, rich in vegetables and avoiding excessive sugar.
  • Making an appointment with us every 6 months or as recommended by the dentist depending on the condition of the mouth.
