What Are Dental Cleanings?

After your treatment, you can ask for tips on ways to better clean your teeth at home and discover certain areas that need more attention. A professional cleaning will give our dental team a chance to identify any areas of concern in the mouth that might require treatment. Having a professional cleaning is a vital part of keeping up your dental health, so schedule appointments for your whole family at our Wellesley, MA office today.
Who Needs Dental Cleanings?
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends everyone have a professional cleaning twice per year. Babies should get their first visit to the dentist before they turn one and after that, we can help you determine when your child is ready for their next dental appointment. A professional cleaning may prevent cavities because plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay, is removed. A cleaning will also remove tartar and stains on your teeth. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, boost your health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a dental cleaning in Wellesley, MA.
Dental Cleaning Reviews
I had a few root canals done at my dentist and then the teeth cracked and needed to be extracted. I lived with the missing teeth till I found Dr Rafla and he explained that I needed a bone graph since it they had been missing so long..that took six months for the bone to regenerate and give him the depth for the implants...the implants were painless and done correctly I have been going back to them for 2 yrs to monitor the implant, check my receding gums and get a extensive cleaning every 6 months. I was then able to go back to my doctor and get Invisalign treatment. Without Dr Rafla this would not be possible. Yes I could have bought a new car, but I also could have had dental problems the rest of my life..I now don't worry and my smile is straight again.
Did my gum surgery 7 years ago. Been getting my 3 month cleanings here ever since. Haven't had any new problems with my gums or teeth.

How Is a Dental Cleaning Performed?
A professional cleaning will begin by removing the tartar and plaque buildup from your teeth, which is hard to treat at home no matter how often you brush and floss. Special instruments are used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. First, an ultrasonic device loosens bigger chunks of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld instruments such as a curette or scaler will remove any remaining buildup. Each tooth needs to be scaled to get all the tartar and plaque. After the teeth have been scaled, we will begin polishing the teeth in order to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If requested or needed, a fluoride treatment will be completed after your cleaning.
What Can I Expect After My Dental Cleaning?
We may suggest cleanings more frequently if you have other oral health concerns like gum disease or any concerns that became present during your cleaning and/or dental exam. Throughout your cleaning, we can help you design a routine for good oral health at home by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that can address your concerns. These are very beneficial for your teeth, wallet, and overall health, so be sure to schedule and go to your dental appointments at Wellesley Aesthetic Dental Group every six months.
