What Is Teeth Cleaning?
The process of cleaning teeth involves removing plaque and tartar from above, below, and around the gumline. Regular teeth cleanings help prevent gum disease and other serious oral health problems. Yearly dental visits are a preventative procedure that allows your dental hygienist to identify problems before they worsen and affect your oral health.
5 Signs That a Teeth Cleaning Is Necessary
Brushing for two minutes twice daily and flossing frequently are the first steps to good oral hygiene. Routine teeth cleaning is a preventative measure.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does a professional dental cleaning involve?
Professional teeth cleaning can be a great way to prevent oral disease and support your at-home routine. Regular brushing and flossing help remove bacteria and food particles, but it’s impossible to eliminate all bacteria. Plaque, a biofilm created by leftover bacteria, forms on teeth, tongue, and under gums, contributing to cavities and gum diseases.
Even with the best at-home care, plaque settled under the gumline may persist. If not removed, this plaque becomes tartar. Untreated tartar traps bacteria between teeth and gums, leading to tooth decay or gum disease. Brushing and flossing can’t remove tartar, a hardened substance on teeth and gums. Only professional cleaning can remove this hard, calcified plaque.
How can I prepare for a dental cleaning?
During your dental cleaning, you can expect to receive comprehensive and gentle treatment. Your dental professional will first review your medical history and examine your teeth, gums and bite.
After your initial examination, your dentist will begin your teeth cleaning. This includes:
- Scaler for removing plaque and tartar under the gums and from teeth
- How to polish your teeth using a special toothbrush and toothpaste
- Professional flossing
- Mouth rinsing
- Fluoride application to teeth
Your provider may take X-rays depending on the oral health problems you have. A visual exam cannot detect these issues.
How often should I have my teeth cleaned?
Your dentist determines the timing for dental cleanings. You should schedule teeth cleanings if it’s been over six months since your last visit. Most people benefit from professional cleanings every six months. If you have gum disease or medical conditions like diabetes that increase gum disease risk, you may need more frequent cleanings.
