Checkup and Teeth Cleaning

Full Mouth cleaning and checkups are essential in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Although you have good oral hygiene practices at home, tartar and plaque still develop over time. With professional full mouth cleaning, you can remove these accumulations and prevent oral problems.

Dentists recommend every individual, starting at the age of 3, have professional mouth cleaning twice a year. This enables your dentist to not only keep your mouth clean but also check for oral complications such as gingivitis that could be developing.

At Arrow Dental Centre, we provide professional dental cleaning to provide you and your family with the optimal and comprehensive oral health care that you deserve.

Teeth cleaning for Kids

When was the last time you took your child for a full mouth cleaning? It may be time to schedule an appointment with your pediatric dentist.

While brushing and flossing teeth daily is important, it is not enough to maintain your child’s oral health at the optimal level. Building a habit of taking your child to the dentist regularly while they are young can encourage them to maintain this good habit as they grow. With regular dental cleaning, the risk of your kid developing oral problems can be significantly reduced.

Usually, thorough teeth cleaning at a dental clinic takes less than an hour. And the benefits of that session can have a huge impact on your child’s oral health in the long run.

Dental cleaning is an important dental hygiene practice that involves the removal of dental plaque by teeth scaling and planing. This practice has numerous benefits which include

Brightening your smile: Certain dark-colored drinks and foods can stain your teeth over time. Teeth cleaning removes these stains resulting in polished, healthy teeth and a bright smile.

Reducing bad breath: The most effective way to reduce bad breath is to maintain clean teeth. Combining your daily routine of brushing and flossing with a thorough mouth cleaning session twice a year keeps your mouth healthy and gives you fresher breath.

Preventing cavities: Plaque buildup is the leading cause of tooth decay which wears down the tooth enamel resulting in cavities. Together with daily brushing, dental cleaning removes plaque preventing cavities.

Preventing tooth loss: Plaque buildup on your teeth can loosen up your teeth and gum increasing the risk of gum disease, which is a leading cause of tooth loss. With teeth cleaning, you clear the plaque and other debris preventing tooth loss.

Boosting overall health: There’s a connection between your overall body health and dental health. Keeping your teeth and gums clean lowers the risk of some diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Also, certain conditions can be identified and treated during an oral diagnosis preventing further health complications.

During a mouth cleaning session, a dentist will examine your mouth to identify issues and advice on a treatment option. The steps involved during a typical dental cleaning include: The first step is an oral examination which involves using a small, round mirror to get a close view of your teeth and gums. This is essential for detecting problems such as loose fillings, cavities, etc. The second step is removing plaque and tar on the surface of the teeth. This requires several dental tools which help in removing debris that could cause cavities. The dentist will scrape away the plaque. If they note you need a more thorough cleaning, the dentist will recommend a deep cleaning appointment. The final step is brushing and flossing. The dentist will advise you about brushing techniques, types of toothbrushes to use, etc. A fluoride treatment may also be applied to add a protective layer to your teeth preventing tooth decay. In some cases, the dentist may advise additional treatment procedures such as scaling and root planing to reduce the risk of periodontal disease.
