Great overall oral health starts with a healthy smile. That’s why we recommend you come to see our dentist at least twice a year! Not only do regular teeth cleanings serve to maintain a clean mouth, but they leave you looking and feeling more confident! Watsonville Dental Wellness Center offers patients a broad range of dental services, including thorough teeth cleaning to keep your smile at its best.

What Does a Professional Teeth Cleaning Include?

Teeth cleanings consist of multiple steps that are designed to address every aspect of your smile. Cleanings begin with an extensive examination of the status of your teeth. This is followed by removing the plaque and tartar that surrounds your gumline using specialized instruments.

Once your teeth are plaque-free, our hygienist will brush them with a high-power electric brush. The final steps are a combination of flossing, rinsing, and applying a fluoride treatment to protect the teeth from cavities.

Benefits of a Professional Dental Cleaning

Even if you follow all the recommended dental cleaning guidelines at home, it’s really hard to get the same type of deep clean you’ll receive from a professional. Our in-office teeth cleanings will help:

  • Prevent cavities
  • Prevent gum disease
  • Prevent bad breath
  • Detect signs of future oral health issues
  • Give you a whiter smile

How to Create an Oral Health Routine

Once you leave our office, your work begins. To maintain a healthy smile after your dentist appointment, there are some steps you should take at home, including:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Using fluoridated mouthwash to control bacteria
