Maintain Healthy Teeth And Gums With Regular Dental Cleanings


Good oral health contributes to overall well-being and one of the most important ways to achieve a healthy mouth and smile is by prioritizing regular dental cleanings. At Family Dental Ocala in Ocala, we know that dental cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, help ensure that patients achieve and maintain great oral health for life!

What is involved in dental cleanings?

Our dental hygienist uses specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth, including those hard-to-reach areas. After plaque and tartar removal, we use a specialized toothpaste to clean and polish your teeth. This procedure removes surface stains and leaves your teeth feeling smooth and fresh. We complete the process by flossing between your teeth to remove any remaining debris. A fluoride rinse may also be used to strengthen your teeth and protect against cavities.

What are the advantages of dental cleanings?

Regular dental cleanings help prevent common dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. Removing plaque and tartar buildup prevents the formation of cavities and reduces the risk of gum inflammation and infection. Dental cleanings promote optimal oral health by reaching areas that are difficult to clean through regular brushing and flossing. These cleanings also enable us to carefully examine your teeth and gums for signs of oral health issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or oral cancer. Early detection leads to timely intervention and better treatment outcomes.

Who can benefit from dental cleanings?

Everyone, regardless of age, can benefit from regular dental cleanings. However, specific individuals, such as those with periodontal disease, smokers and tobacco users, and those with a history of cavities, gum disease, or other dental issues, may benefit from more frequent cleanings to prevent future problems.
