About Dental Cleaning

Even if you take great care of your teeth with a regimented at-home oral health routine, plaque and tartar can still collect in areas throughout the mouth. This is why attending twice-yearly professional dental cleanings is critical to maintaining the health of your smile. At Made Ya Smile, our skilled team uses delicate instruments to polish and scale your teeth, giving your mouth a fresh look and feel. During your biannual cleaning appointment, we will also monitor your gums and teeth and assess any issues that could be addressed with improved or modified cleaning habits. We're always happy to give patients of any age recommendations and tips so they can keep their oral health in check all throughout the year. If you or your family are in need of a dental cleaning in a comfortable and professional environment, contact our Pearland, TX office and take charge of your oral wellness.

Who Should Have a Dental Cleaning?

At Made Ya Smile, we endorse the claim by the ADA (American Dental Association) which states that patients should receive a professional dental cleaning at least two times per year. However, patients with pressing oral concerns may benefit from having their teeth cleaned by a professional more often. If you are a new parent, we advise that you bring your baby in for their first visit around their first birthday or six months after their first tooth erupts. It's important for people of all ages to receive regular teeth cleanings because plaque, tartar, and bacteria will collect and worsen over time, causing a host of issues such as gingivitis and tooth decay. Even if you maintain a good oral routine in your day-to-day life, our Pearland, TX office uses tools that clean the teeth more effectively than what brushing and flossing permit. Still, maintaining a consistent dental regimen is very important to keep up the health of your teeth throughout the year in-between visits.

What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?

Our team of dental hygienists works diligently to make sure that your teeth cleaning experience at our Pearland, TX office is a comfortable one. We work with each person individually to assess their teeth and gums and provide tips so they can maintain or improve their oral health in-between visits. To perform your cleaning, one of our hygienists will use ultrasonic, handheld instruments to eradicate plaque and calcified tartar that may exist along the gumline. Once these cavity-causing deposits are removed, we will delicately polish your teeth to produce a fresh and clean look. Once your cleaning is complete, a fluoride treatment may be given to help strengthen the teeth and prevent cavities for children, teen, and adult patients alike.

How Often Do I Need A Dental Cleaning?

In between dental visits, it's important to keep up a consistent oral routine at home that involves regular brushing and flossing. To maintain your oral health, you should continue to attend your biannual cleanings at our Pearland, TX facility so we can continue to monitor the condition of your teeth and gums. Most patients will be just fine receiving two professional cleanings a year, but people with more severe dental issues (such as gum disease) could benefit from having their teeth professionally scaled and cleaned up to four times a year. We will schedule your next six-month visit before you leave our office to make sure that your cleanings are spaced out appropriately.

Will Insurance Cover A Dental Cleaning?

Professional dental cleanings are preventive treatments that are often covered in full by insurance. If you do not have insurance, our team will be more than happy to provide you with useful information about our in-house financing plans. We can also tell you more about third-party medical financing we accept, such as CareCredit®. If you have a question about the insurance providers we accept, don't hesitate to contact our Pearland, TX office.

Schedule Your Professional Dental Cleaning

If you want to have a healthy smile for years to come, the first step is to receive bi-annual cleanings from a dental professional. During your twice-yearly check-up, a member of our team will use advanced instruments to scale and polish your teeth with a precision that only comes from having years of experience. At Made Ya Smile, we welcome patients of all ages and concerns. To maintain optimal oral health, contact our office and schedule your dental cleaning.
