Teeth Cleaning In Midlothian, VA

   

Regular teeth cleaning is essential if you want to prevent serious dental issues over time. It usually not enough just to brush your teeth twice a day and floss because deposits of mineralized plaque will adhere to your teeth in the form of tartar even with your best efforts.

When left unchecked, tartar offers a playground for millions of harmful bacteria that can produce toxins and release them into your gums. Even though tartar doesn't look like a serious condition at first sight, it can actually have devastating consequences that may even result in the loss of teeth.

By visiting your dentist twice a year for the cleaning, you won't have to worry about tartar deposits anymore. At J. Han Dental Design, we gently move mineral deposits from the surface of your teeth and then use professional stand polishing paste to buff away microscopically as well. After a thorough cleaning, your teeth will look and feel clean while also being shiny and ultra-smooth.

Teeth Cleaning Prevents Gum Disease

The way you care for your teeth and gums at home plays an important role in maintaining an attractive smile and preventing dental problems along the way. It's important to make regular appointments with your dentist to have your teeth cleaned professionally to prevent gum disease, not just from a cosmetic point of view, but also because there's more and more research showing that periodontal disease is a risk factor for multiple medical conditions including diabetes, heart disease, pregnancy complications, and respiratory disease.

If you have any questions regarding your oral health or have symptoms that are causing concern, such as suspected gum disease, don't hesitate to get in touch with us so we can advise you on the best course of action. Our hygienists offer teeth cleaning near Richmond to provide you with the best preventative care.

Teeth Cleaning FAQ

Why should I get a dental cleaning?

Dental cleanings are essential if you want to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. During a dental cleaning appointment, our hygienist will deeply clean your teeth while also eliminating the risks associated with gum disease. Having regular teeth cleanings at the dentist is a great way to prevent major dental problems.

Are teeth cleanings painful?

No, teeth cleanings are not painful; however, you should expect small amount of pressure and small tooth vibrations during the procedure. Our dental team will be more than happy to help you feel more comfortable and safe if these sensations make you uncomfortable.

How often should I get a dental cleaning?

Dentists recommend attending the cleaning appointment every six months. However, if you have some major issues, such as periodontal disease, for example, you might need to get a cleaning every three months. Dr John Han can assess your particular situations and advise you on how often you should attend these appointments based on your specific oral health.

How do I keep my teeth clean after an appointment?

To keep your smile clean, it's important to brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day. If possible, try to raise your mouth with water or brush your teeth after each meal and snack. You can also use bacteria killing or fluoride mouthwash to rinse your mouth every day.

What can happen if I don't keep my teeth clean?

When harmful bacteria accumulate on your teeth, they inflame the gums and erode dental enamel, which causes periodontal disease, discoloration, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. These conditions may also result in other order diseases, which is why it's important to practice good oral hygiene at home and receive regular dental cleanings at the dentist's office.
