General Exam and Cleaning Q & A

Why are dental cleanings necessary?

Keeping up with routine dental cleanings is important in the effort to help prevent tooth loss, damage, decay, or the formation of dental diseases. Teeth cleaning done by a professional removes the buildup of plaque and tartar. If these aren’t removed it can be the start of gum disease. As gum disease increases, it can damage the bone and tissues in your mouth. When that damage progresses too far, it can become irreversible. Preventive measures, such as regular teeth cleanings, are the best options to maintain the health of your mouth and keep beautiful teeth for a lifetime.

What happens during dental cleanings?

The focus of any teeth cleaning is to maintain the best in dental hygiene and oral health care. When done by a professional, teeth cleaning can prevent the onset of tooth or gum disease before it does damage to your teeth. Some of the things you can expect during a dental cleaning include the removal of:

  • Plaque: Plaque is a sticky substance which leads to deposits of tartar and cavities. A build-up of plaque can also result in tooth decay and gum problems.
  • Tartar: Tartar is plaque that has developed on the tooth over time and hardened. If tartar is allowed to build up below the gum line, it can cause gum disease.
  • Stains: Discolorations and stains on the teeth is the main reason for tooth cleaning. Beverly Hills Specialty Dental Care will ensure the removal of stains so your teeth are brighter and healthier after the cleaning session.

What is a dental exam?

If you’re a new patient, you’ll receive a comprehensive exam to decide what your oral health, dental, and cosmetic goals are. General exams are also used to make sure your teeth remain healthy and gives the dentist a better understanding of your oral health status. Should any treatments become necessary they’ll be decided at this time.
