Why is Professional Teeth Cleaning So Important?

Catch Dental Problems in the Early Stage

Teeth cleaning services include preventative care – X-rays, oral exams, fluoride treatment, etc. Regular screenings will pinpoint any issues before they require more extensive procedures.

Clean the Spots You Miss

No one’s dental routine is perfect. Professional teeth cleanings get the tarter your toothbrush misses in the hard-to-reach spots – and makes sure it doesn’t threaten the rest of your mouth.

Prevent Gum Disease

Hardened plaque buildup can lead to infections and other issues – which can spread to the rest of your body. Regular cleanings keep your gums healthy and protected year-round.

What to Expect in a Professional Dental Cleaning



Our teeth cleaning process starts with a thorough examination of your mouth. We’ll take X-rays and check for signs of cavities, alignment issues, gum disease, pain, and other potential concerns.


Plaque & Tartar Removal

A professional dental hygienist will use a scaler to gently remove the tartar buildup from your teeth to protect your gums from infections.


Teeth Polishing

Once all the tartar is removed, we use a high-powered polishing brush and gritty toothpaste to remove stains and smoothen your enamel.



Professional flossing gets deep into the gum line to remove any leftover plaque and prevent cavities and infections. If you aren’t familiar, we will show you the proper way to floss at home in your daily routine.


Fluoride Treatment

The final step in our teeth-cleaning process is to apply a fluoride gel – which helps to strengthen your enamel and prevent other dental issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is a dental cleaning?

Many dental insurance providers cover 100% of bi-annual teeth cleanings and preventative care. Without insurance, the average cost for an adult dental cleaning can range from $75 to $200. If additional services are needed, the price can increase. Be sure to check with your insurance provider to understand your coverage.

How often should teeth cleaning be done?

We recommend teeth cleanings for people every six months as part of routine preventive dental care. This frequency helps to prevent the buildup of tartar and reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease. Depending on your oral health status, we may recommend more frequent cleanings. Individuals with a history of periodontal disease or other oral health issues may need to have their teeth cleaned more often, potentially every 3-4 months.

How long does a teeth cleaning take?

This can depend on many different factors, including your current health status or if other procedures are needed. Generally, we estimate between 30-60 minutes for a routine teeth cleaning.

How to relieve pain after teeth cleaning?

We commonly recommend over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen if you’re experiencing pain after a cleaning. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water several times a day can also help soothe sore gums. Avoid eating very hot, cold, or hard foods for a few days after the cleaning to prevent irritation.

If the pain persists for more than a few days or if you experience significant pain, get in touch with us for a follow-up appointment.

Is it painful to get your teeth cleaned?

Generally, no. You may experience some discomfort or sensitivity if there is significant tartar buildup or if your gums are inflamed. We use specialized tools to gently remove plaque and tartar without damaging the teeth or gums. If you have sensitive teeth or concerns about discomfort, tell us beforehand and we’ll take precautions to minimize pain.
