Teeth Cleanings: What You Can’t Do at Home

Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once have long been the most effective means of at-home dental care. Brushing helps to remove food debris and plaque from tooth surfaces, while flossing works to remove food particles from the gaps in between your teeth. Together, brushing and flossing can effectively help prevent cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease.

Professional cleanings, however, are designed to be a deep, detailed cleaning of your entire mouth. Dr. Rosenfeld is equipped with the tools and knowledge needed to remove plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth. We also check the inside of your mouth for symptoms of small dental issues that could turn into big problems if left untreated. 

From your far-back molars to tight gaps between the teeth, Dr. Rosenfeld can make sure each of these areas are thoroughly cleaned and free of plaque. Having clean teeth means fewer cavities, fewer problems with decay, and an infection-free and pain-free smile.  

Benefits of Regular Teeth Cleanings

Though plaque-free teeth and healthy gums are two of the most beneficial results of proper oral care, dental cleanings have additional benefits. Not only will dental cleanings help you maintain excellent oral health, they’ll prevent other health risks associated with poor oral health. 

Additional benefits of professional teeth cleanings include:

  • During a professional cleaning, dentists can remove stains that can dull and yellow your teeth. You can leave our office after your cleaning with a brighter looking smile.
  • Dental cleanings can prevent gum disease. Severe gum diseases like periodontitis can be  associated with heart disease, so you’ll also be reducing your risk for heart attacks and stroke.
  • During cleanings, Dr. Rosenfeld can check for any issues that could become difficult to treat later on—like oral cancer, cavities, and infections.
  • Teeth cleanings keep your breath fresh.
  • Regular cleanings can prevent serious issues like root canals, tooth extractions, and more. You can save money simply by coming in for routine dental cleanings twice a year.
